AUSTIN, Texas - Univar Environmental Sciences announced the launch of a two-month long promotion incentivizing pest management professionals to provide feedback on the products they use through Ratings & Reviews, PestWeb's interactive new forum.

From March 4 through April 28, Premier Services subscribers can win weekly and monthly prizes, including iPads, iPods and Apple TVs, for rating products and writing product reviews through the Ratings & Reviews forum, Univar said. For a chance to win the weekly drawing, participants must review at least two products per week to be automatically entered. Three winners will be selected per week to win either an iPod Shuffle or one of two Apple TVs. Entrants can only win one weekly contest per month. As well, at the end of each month, those participants who reviewed at least 10 products within the month will be automatically entered into a separate drawing in which two winners will be awarded either an Apple TV or an iPad mini.

"Our customers often ask about product performance and what other PMPs are saying about particular products," said Karl J. Kisner, vice president of marketing, Univar Environmental Sciences. "We created Ratings & Reviews so that customers could very specifically share their thoughts and feedback in a constructive forum."
