Zevo Donates Bug and Insect Control Solutions to Disaster Relief Organization to Assist in Hurricane Recovery

CINCINNATI , December 07 /Businesswire/ - Procter & Gamble’s (NYSE: PG) Zevo is partnering with humanitarian and disaster relief organization, Matthew 25: Ministries (M25) to meet a need often overlooked in post-hurricane relief efforts – bug and insect control.

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.

Zevo helps ensure Floridians are protected by donating $4 million 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 will help protect both residents and their homes from the surge of insects that can follow a devastating hurricane like Ian.

“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.”

When it comes to getting rid of unwanted bugs in your home, it often feels like a choice between traditional insect sprays and DIY solutions. But now there’s Zevo – the insect sprays that kill and repel bugs in a different way. For example, Zevo Instant Action Sprays are powered by bug-deadly essential oils that target nerve receptors vital to insects. These active ingredients use plants’ natural defenses to effectively outsmart a wide range of bugs. Plus, they’re safe for use around people and pets when used as directed.

“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.”

Zevo products are available for purchase online at and at various retailers across the US. To find a local retailer that carries Zevo products, visit Zevo’s store locator.
