| November 20, 2013

VANCOUVER, B.C., Canada — Terramera announced the launch of its personal-sized Cirkil product, a ready-to-use product designed for the pest management professional industry, with a new label that industry professionals can also use to sell or provide to their customers as a leave-behind before, between or after treatments.

“Bed bugs are highly transmittable and the epidemic is a growing concern in the United States,” said Karn Manhas, CEO and founder of Terramera. “Cirkil personal-size provides real value that pest management professionals can supply to their clients to increase sales and satisfaction, and decrease call-backs.”

The plant-based spray technology in Cirkil, recently fast-tracked by the EPA, kills bed bugs and their eggs with or without direct contact. It can also be used to treat items such as books and electronics without needing to spray the items directly.

“The launch of this product will provide consumers with a new-found peace of mind, knowing they can spot-treat problem areas immediately if they suspect an infestation,” said Annett Rozek, Chief Scientific Officer at Terramera.

Terramera’s 3-ounce personal-sized Cirkil biopesticide was developed to be part of an integrated pest management strategy for bed bugs. For more information please visit: www.terramera.com.
