DALLAS — HomeTeam Pest Defense announced it has earned the coveted “Partners of Choice Award” from builder, David Weekley Homes. HomeTeam is the first pest management company to receive this illustrious award.
The company received an “A” rating for quality in David Weekley Homes’ ongoing Supplier Evaluation System. This is the first year HomeTeam has won the award and is only one of seven companies to earn the “A” quality rating this year. This recognition puts HomeTeam in the top 5 percent of all suppliers to the nation’s second largest privately held homebuilder, David Weekley Homes.
“We are honored to receive this award from David Weekley Homes and to earn an “A” quality for our products and services,” said Dirk Korte, vice president of builder sales with HomeTeam. “This award represents the hard work and dedication of all HomeTeam employees. We are very proud of this outstanding accomplishment and view David Weekley Homes as a valued builder partner.”
The annual awards are based on Weekley’s National Trading Partner Survey, a review of 150 suppliers by company employees. Suppliers are rated on quality, service, price and relationship response. Now in its eighth year, the Partners of Choice Award becomes increasingly challenging to attain. According to Bill Justice, vice president of supply chain services, “This achievement is about the best of the best who deliver quality to our team members. Our survey is a standard for measuring world-class effort.”
LG Life Sciences Introduces FenvaStar EcoCap

LG Life Sciences introduces FenvaStar EcoCap for the control of a variety of pests, including stink bugs, ants, bed bugs, mosquitoes and more.
LG Life Sciences reports that it has performed efficacy trials versus bed bugs and fleas with very good results in terms of direct spray kill as well as residual kill when pests are exposed to aged surfaces including carpet tiles. FenvaStar EcoCap is labeled for broadcast application for residual flea control – indoors and outdoors.
“Many PMPs are already including LG’s Lambdastar 9.7% CS with EcoCap Technology as the main part of their fall stink bug treatments, and now LG is providing one more EcoCap option,” said Patrick Callahan, national sales and marketing manager, LG Life Sciences.
Callahan added, “It seems a bit apropos that these new, invasive stink bug species from Asia may be meeting their match with insecticide formulation technology from that same part of the globe. LG Life Sciences, when possible, is bringing new and unique formulations to older, yet very effective active ingredients such as lambdacyhalothrin and esfenvalerate.”
FenvaStar EcoCap is sold in an 8 ounce Tip n’ Measure bottle.
