Zevo donated bug and insect control solutions to assist in Hurricane Ian
Muggy weather conditions and areas of standing water attract bugs and allow them to thrive, while the damage from the storms creates new entry points for insects to enter the home, leaving residents more vulnerable than usual as they try to rebuild their lives, according to P&G.
The corporation added that Zevo helped ensure Floridians were protected by donating $4 million (€3.7m) worth of Ant, Roach & Spider Crawling Insect Spray, Ant, Roach & Fly Multi-Insect Trigger Spray and the latest innovation, Zevo’s ON-BODY Mosquito + Tick Spray. These products were intended to help protect both residents and their homes from the surge of insects that can follow a devastating hurricane like Ian, according to the firm.
“We’re grateful for our partnership with Procter & Gamble and for this generous donation from Zevo, which so effectively responds to an often overlooked need after a disaster,” said Tim Mettey, chief executive officer, Matthew 25: Ministries.
“The Florida communities we are assisting were impacted by hurricanes this year and will now be able to move forward with their relief and recovery efforts with less concern about the irritating and sometimes dangerous bites, stings or any other damage bugs and insects can bring.”
“We wanted to offer our support to the families in Florida by providing a reliable, people & pet friendly insect control solution to protect them and their homes in such a critical season,” said Guy B. Persaud, president of P&G Ventures at Procter & Gamble. “At Zevo, we know bugs and how much of a nuisance they can be. Bugs and insects are the last thing the people in Florida should worry about during this time.”
