"We’re thrilled to play such an important role at this event so that both the professionals competing and event attendees can have an enjoyable, pest-free experience."

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Terminix, a leading provider of termite and pest control services and a ServiceMaster (NYSE:SERV) company, today announced its newest offering, Quick GuardTM Mosquito Service, will play a critical role in keeping the TPC Southwind golf course free of mosquitoes during this week’s FedEx St. Jude Classic tournament.

“Terminix is dedicated to supporting efforts in our local Memphis community,” said Matthew Loos, vice president of marketing and sales effectiveness at Terminix. “We’re thrilled to play such an important role at this event so that both the professionals competing and event attendees can have an enjoyable, pest-free experience.”

Mosquito control plans for the event have included an integrated approach to ensure the most effective results possible. Weeks in advance of the tournament, Terminix managers visited the course to inspect and identify high-traffic areas and potential mosquito breeding sites. The Quick Guard service was also initiated at that time to immediately reduce mosquito populations.

During the event, additional localized area mosquito services will be provided at the start of each day. The combination of Quick Guard along with other preventative service offerings will play a key role in keeping the course free of mosquitoes.

Terminix Quick Guard Mosquito Service features a fast-acting, effective pesticide that has been tested in the most challenging mosquito environments. Quick Guard eliminates 15 times as many mosquitoes and lasts 12 times longer than previous service offerings from Terminix, making it the strongest defense yet*.

Quick Guard is currently available in most Terminix branches nationwide. For more information on mosquito control, visit the Terminix website.
