Humid weather conditions and areas of stagnant water attract insects and allow them to thrive, while the damage from the storms creates new entry points for insects to enter the home, making residents more vulnerable than usual as they attempt to rebuild their lives.

Zevo helps keep Floridians safe by offering $4 million in Ant, Roach, and Spider Crawling Insect Spray, Ant, Roach, and Fly Multi-Insect Trigger Spray, and the latest innovation, Zevos ON -BODY Mosquito + Tick Spray, donates. These products will help protect both residents and their homes from the deluge of insects that can follow a devastating hurricane like Ian.

“We are grateful for our partnership with Procter & Gamble and for this generous donation from Zevo, which responds so effectively to an often overlooked need in the wake of a disaster,” said Tim Mettey, Chief Executive Officer, Matthew 25: Ministries. “The Florida communities we serve have been hit by hurricanes this year and can now continue their relief and recovery efforts without worrying about the irritating and sometimes dangerous bites, stings or other damage that bugs and insects can inflict .”

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

“We wanted to offer our support to Florida families by providing a reliable, people and pet friendly insect control solution to protect them and their homes during such a critical time of year,” said Guy B. Persaud, President of P&G Ventures at Procter & Gamble. “At Zevo we know about bugs and how annoying they can be. Bugs and insects are the last thing on people’s minds in Florida at this time.”
