Bayer CropScience Issues Call to Action for Pest Management Professionals:
Tell Us Your 'Tale of Transformation'

Initiative to be Launched at PestWorld 2013 in Phoenix--Top Pest Control
Success Stories May be Submitted at Bayer's Booth and Online

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB -
Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, has announced the
launch of its Tales of Transformation intiative, in which Bayer is inviting
pest management professionals (PMPs) to share their proudest moments of when
they used Bayer products and solutions to transform the lives and living
conditions of customers battling severe pest infestations. Bayer will award
the professional with the top story an all-expense-paid trip and will also
donate pest control products toward a community service project selected by
the PMP.

"PMPs have the most incredible stories of how they've helped ordinary people,
families and businesses get rid of public health threats posed by pests. As an
industry, we need to celebrate the good these professionals do in the world
and the value they bring to society," said Norman Barclift, marketing manager,
General Insect Control at Bayer. "Bayer takes pride in working with the
industry to help transform the future of pest management so all of us can
continue our work of fostering healthy environments where our customers live,
work and play."

Between now and January 10, 2014, PMPs can submit their stories online at
http://www.BayerTalesofTransformation.com in the form of an original video or
written essay. Those attending PestWorld 2013 in Phoenix will have an
opportunity to share their stories on camera in Bayer's booth, #819. Once
entries are collected, Bayer will then select four finalists and collaborate
with the selected individuals to produce professional videos featuring their
stories. All videos will be posted online so the industry can listen to their
stories and vote for their favorite throughout 2014. The PMP with the winning
submission will be announced in October 2014 and will be awarded with the
following:

  *All-expense-paid trip for a Holland America Alaska Cruse; to the Sandals
    Regency LaToc Golf Resort & Spa in St. Lucia; to the Silverado Resort in
    Napa Valley OR to the New York Westin Times Square.
  *Donated Bayer products for use during a community service project selected
    by the PMP.

"We want to acknowledge the positive impacts PMPs make in communities across
the country and thank them for their relationship with us," Barclift said. "We
look forward to viewing the submissions and learning how PMPs are utilizing
their skills, expertise and Bayer products to make a difference and transform
the lives of their customers."
