RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Five pest management professionals (PMPs) have been selected as finalists in the Temprid Save the Day Contest, in which PMPs shared stories of instances when they saved the day by tackling a pest problem for a family or business using Temprid SC Insecticide. Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, is calling upon PMPs across the country to view all five videos online and vote for their favorite story.
