Firm now offering new insurance option designed specifically for small pest control companies.

| September 4, 2012

BAY SHORE, N.Y. - Brownyard Group announced it has expanded its pest control program with PCOnova, a new insurance option designed specifically for small pest control companies.

PCOnova is written on an E&S basis through an insurance carrier rated "A+" by A.M. Best Company, Brownyard said.

"For years we have offered one of the pest management industry's broadest commercial insurance programs, but we recognize this coverage can be difficult to afford for some small firms," said John Culotta, program manager for the pest control program at Brownyard Group. "We developed PCOnova for these small firms as a lower cost, yet quality alternative to our admitted pest control program."

PCOnova features: care, custody and control coverage; pollution coverage; wood-destroying organism coverage; termite coverage; auto transit pollution coverage; fumigation coverage on a limited basis; $15,000 sublimit for lost key coverage.

Brownyard also offers PCOpro, an insurance program designed specifically for the pest management industry among the broadest available at competetive prices, according to Brownyard.
