Monroe, Ohio, Pest Management Professional Announced as Bayer CropScience
Temprid "Save the Day" Contest Winner

Pest Management Professional Shares Incident of When he Saved the Day for a
Couple in Dire Need of Bed Bug Treatment

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB -
Robert Dunlap, owner of No-Bugs Pest Management in Monroe, Ohio, has been
announced as the Bayer Temprid Save the Day Contest Winner. Environmental
Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, called upon PMPs last summer to
share triumphant stories of instances when they saved the day by tackling a
pest problem using Temprid® SC Insecticide. Following two months of online
voting by PMPs across the country, Dunlap has been declared the contest winner
and recipient of free Temprid® and an all-expense-paid trip for four to Las
Vegas, a much-deserved vacation for providing such a critical and exceptional
service to his customers. Dunlap received the highest number of votes for his
story when he provided treatments at no charge for a blind couple living with
thousands of bed bugs.

Norman Barclift, General Insect Control Product Manager at Environmental
Science, is happy to announce Dunlap as the contest winner.

"Robert shared an incredible story with us and his peers about a time when he
certainly saved the day, donating his time for members of his community,"
Barclift said. "We're extremely proud to offer a product and platform that has
allowed him to provide results and complete customer satisfaction."

"I am thrilled to receive this award from my industry peers and want to thank
all PMPs who contributed their votes to the contest," Dunlap said. "It was an
honor to represent my business and devotion for this industry, along with the
other finalists who shared their compelling stories and passions for helping
their communities live pest free."

Dunlap's story of success comes from a visit to the home of a blind couple who
had been suffering from a severe bed bug infestation and lack of effective
treatment. Using Temprid®, Dunlap was able to successfully treat and rid the
couple's property of bed bugs, eliminating the non-stop bug bites and giving
them peace of mind. He provided the services to the couple at no charge--a
gesture he strives to achieve at least once a month for a local home or
business owner in great need of a pest control treatment.

"Temprid worked so well for me in this infestation that I decided that I
wanted to use it religiously," Dunlap said. "I'm a one-man operation, and I
need to have the best chemicals I can buy. Right now, Temprid from Bayer is my
liquid product of choice."
