| October 25, 2012

BOSTON — Terramera, a developer plant-based bioscience products for pest management, announced the launch CIRKIL CX Insecticide and Ovicide Concentrate and CIRKIL RTU Ready-to-Use Insecticide and Ovicide.

CIRKIL is the first EPA-registered biopesticide and the first pesticide that kills both live bed bugs and their eggs as a residual treatment, according to the manufacturer. The market launch for CIRKIL products occurred at the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) PestWorld 2012 conference in Boston, Oct 17-21.

With the recent market launch of CIRKIL, Terramera has opened up availability of the products for distribution across the United States. Any U.S. distributor can now purchase CIRKIL from Terramera to provide their pest management professional (PMP) clients with this new bed bug solution.

“We have had a tremendous level of interest in these new products. PMPs should look for CIRKIL products to be available through pest control distributors in every area of the U.S. and its territories very, very soon,” said Karn Manhas, CEO of Terramera. “We’ve had a tremendous level of international interest as well. We will be working with international distributors to bring these products to other countries through international pest control product distributors in the near future as well.”

Terramera soft-launched CIRKIL in California through Target Specialty Products this summer. The products have been available through Target in several western and southwestern states. More than 200 PMPs have used the product since its introduction. “We are excited to roll out CIRKIL products across the U.S.,” said Manhas. “CIRKIL products are powerful new tools recently approved by the U.S. EPA for bed bug and spider management. They are extremely effective, can be used in a wide variety of sites, and have flexible labels that make PMPs jobs easier. They are not the cheapest products on the market, but they are cost-effective because they are easy to use and work extremely well.”

CIRKIL products are formulated using plant-based ingredients and work through contact, residual and vapor action. CIRKIL products demonstrates powerful efficacy against bed bugs at all stages of life, including eggs, the manufacturer reports. CIRKIL products are currently labeled for management of spiders, bed bugs and their eggs.
