Arizona Pest Control Launches New and Improved App

Business

The new version includes an entire pest gallery, the company's blog, and a version built specifically for Ipad users.

| April 2, 2012

TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona Pest Control has launched a new and improved application in the Apple store. It was back in April of 2011 when the company released the first version of the App called AZPEST.COM Pest ID Pro. The application is designed to help consumers identify bugs and insects they come across in their home or business. You can upload a photo of the pest you want to identify to the APP and Arizona Pest Control trained entomologists will ID your insect for you within a 24 hour period.

The company said because of the great response they saw within the first year (over 4,500 downloads in the apple store) they felt inclined to design and update to a more user friendly application with more features.

Arizona Pest Control Marketing Director Caleb Tennenbaum said, “The new updated version includes an entire pest gallery so people who are in a hurry to have their bug Identified can utilize the gallery and browse photos of potential intruders to identify their bugs quicker. The update has also incorporated the company’s blog http://www.azpest.com/blog so that users can stay up to date with all of the Arizona Pest Control news. Another new edition to the app is that there is now a version built specifically for Ipad users to give more people access to the Arizona Pest Control experts.”

The company also said they have seen a great response from the users of the application and have an average rating of 5 stars.
