TruGreen, Memphis, Tennessee, launched its latest service offering, Perimeter Pest, an exterior treatment targeting unwanted bugs and insects where they live and reducing their ability to become a problem inside the home. The company says this new pest control amplifies its current pest program, while complementing current lawn and horticultural treatments.

Available in select markets across the nation, Perimeter Pest consists of four seasonal, exterior treatments applied by TruGreen specialists with localized knowledge and science-backed training. The treatments last 60-90 days and are applied to the house’s perimeter with no need for TruGreen specialists to treat inside of the home. The product targets a variety of pests including ants, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, earwigs, kudzu bug, lady beetle, millipedes, mud daubers, stink bugs, paper wasps, scorpions, sow bugs and spiders.

This new service offering will be available in 72 branches spanning several states across the country, including Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

“The addition of Perimeter Pest to our Pest Defense Program reinforces our commitment to best serve our customers,” says Johanna Metz, senior director of product management at TruGreen. “Perimeter Pest targets the outside of the home to prevent unwanted pests from making their way inside and helps customers and their families enjoy more quality time pest-free.”

Perimeter Pest is the latest offering in TruGreen’s Pest Defense Program, a suite of services aimed at controlling unwanted pests. With this launch, TruGreen seeks to further enhance the customer experience by serving as a one-stop-shop for lawn and pest services.
