To continue celebrating the inspiring work of the five Tales of Transformation finalists, Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, is calling upon pest management professionals (PMPs) across the country to view all five videos online and vote for their favorite story now through August 30. The winner will be announced in October prior to PestWorld 2014 and will receive complimentary Bayer products to be used for a community service initiative of his choice, in addition to an all-expenses-paid trip.

“We’re happy to be showcasing the value of professional pest control and the expertise of our Tales of Transformation finalists through these videos,” said Norman Barclift, marketing manager, General Insect Control for Bayer Environmental Science. “After unveiling the videos for the first time last month, we are now excited to invite PMPs to vote and select the winner.”

Videos featuring the following finalists can be viewed and voted upon through Aug. 30:

Bayer launched Tales of Transformation at PestWorld last October, calling upon 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. Stories from around the country were submitted, and the five finalists and their accompanying videos were announced in June.

“These finalists have shared such impactful stories with us through this initiative about how they have conquered a variety of pest problems,” Barclift said. “We’ve enjoyed learning how these PMPs have employed their skills, using Bayer solutions to change their customers’ lives for the better. We look forward to announcing the winner later this year.”
