TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucson, Ariz.-based Arizona Pest Control Company announces the release of a pest identification app. The free app, AZPEST.COM PEST ID PRO, helps consumers identify pests in their home or business during the busy bug season. It’s now available in the iTunes store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.

Arizona Pest Control’s Caleb Tennenbaum, Internet marketing director, explained, “Consumers can now correctly ID pests and avoid harming themselves or the environment with improper treatment methods. Not only does Pest ID PRO provide consumers access to professional knowledge to protect their health and environment, but it also prepares Arizona Pest Control specialists to do a more thorough job in the field. It can prepare our techs to do the best job possible when they know they are going out to deal with a termite problem as opposed to a flying ant issue. It should prove to be a useful tool for consumers and a popular app in the Apple store.” 

Once users download the free app simply take a snapshot of the insect or bug you want to identify then use the app to submit it to the Tucson-based pest control specialists, who will respond to your inquiry within 24 hours. The app description explains, “When it comes to your home and family it is vital to identify any pest threats that may linger and eliminate them immediately in a way that is safe to you and your family.”
