"This innovative treatment helps our customers spend more time enjoying outdoor activities and less time dealing with pests."

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Terminix, a leading provider of termite and pest control services in the United States and a ServiceMaster (NYSE: SERV) company, today announced the launch of its newest innovative product, Quick Guard™ Mosquito Service, to quickly combat mosquitoes in homeowners’ yards.

Terminix Quick Guard is a long-lasting service designed to begin working immediately upon application. The treatment uses an integrated pest management approach and features a fast-acting, effective pesticide that has been tested in the most challenging mosquito environments. Monthly Quick Guard treatments maintain a zone of protection from mosquitoes so homeowners can enjoy their outdoor spaces all summer long.

“Mosquitoes can be unrelenting, but the Quick Guard service features a product that starts working immediately, provides long-lasting results and stands up to nearly any weather condition,” said Matthew Loos, vice president of marketing and sales effectiveness at Terminix. “This innovative treatment helps our customers spend more time enjoying outdoor activities and less time dealing with pests.”

Terminix believes that understanding mosquitoes is the first step toward successful prevention and treatment. The following are a few ways homeowners can beat the bite this mosquito season:

  • Get rid of standing water. Standing or stagnant water that is present for five or more days can serve as an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  • Keep gutters and drains clear. Clean out gutters so that liquid can flow freely, reducing the places in which mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
  • Maintain a well-kept yard. From removing debris to leveling the grade of your landscape, homeowners should take precautionary steps to mitigate potential mosquito breeding grounds.
  • Contact a professional. When a homeowner’s mosquito problem has gone too far, call the professionals at Terminix for mosquito control.

For customers, Terminix will do whatever it takes, including coming back at no cost between visits, until mosquitoes are gone. For 30 days after each treatment, if the customer is not 100% satisfied, Terminix will give them their money back.

Quick Guard is available at most Terminix branches nationwide. For more information, visit Terminix.com or call your local Terminix branch.
