New Pest Partner app launched for pest controllers, distributors and homeowners

The app is fully customizable by country and for intended users, e.g. professional pest controllers; distributors or home-owners

Bayer has just launched a brand new and innovative app, called the Pest Partner app, available now from the App Store and Google Play (FREE download).

Fully customizable, the Pest Partner app is a global app, customized for each country, and then further customized for the intended users, e.g. professional pest controllers; distributors or home-owners.

This app replaces Bayer’s previous Bug ID app that was designed specifically for home-owners.  The Pest Partner app, however, allows users to register, and then based on their user profile, customizes its functionality accordingly.  For instance, once a professional pest controller registers with the app, he/she will be able to create a Job Report for his/her customers giving details of the treatment, products used, etc.  This report can be emailed directly to the customer from the app.

Another useful tool for pest controllers is the Dosage Calculator and Sprayer Configurator.  The app allows you to add as many sprayers as you use, and then configurate them accordingly.  This will allow the use of the dosage calculator, to make it easier to work out exactly how much product you need to use.

Other useful tools within the app for pest controllers is the Weather Forecaster; Distributor Locator; and Product Information (e.g. SDS and Labels).

Distributors of Bayer’s Professional Pest Management range of products will also find the Product Information tool handy.

For Home-owners, the app not only gives them Product Information, but also lists the types of common household pests including descriptions, behaviours, risks, etc.  The app allows home-owners to contact a Bayer Expert for advice, or to email a photo for identification purposes, and has an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section.

Daryle Swarz, Pest Market Manager at Bayer said “In the case of nuisance pests, we advise homeowners to contact a professional pest control firm to eradicate the pests successfully and to ensure they do not return. Bayer believes in an integrated approach to pest control, so we work closely with professional pest controllers to help them develop the best techniques. 

“There’s a lot more to effective pest control than most people expect. Correct identification of the pest; awareness of any conditions which may be contributing to an infestation; and targeted use of the right products all play a role in keeping the pests under control,” said Daryle.

Bayer works closely with the professional pest control industry to develop innovative products and deliver high level training on the latest techniques. Its key brands include Temprid®75, Cislin® and Maxforce® for general pest control, and Premise® and Kordon® for protection against termites.
