Bayer Announces Sweepstakes To Celebrate Ten Years Of Merit

To help celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Merit insecticide’s first EPA registration date, Bayer Environmental Science announces a new sweepstakes for golf course superintendents, lawn care operators and arborists. The sweepstakes allows Merit customers to enter to win prizes including professional equipment, gift certificates, electronics, and more. The three grand prizes are a $10,000 Lowe’s gift card, a four-year lease on a Ford F-150 and a trip for four to the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Las Vegas.

“Since its registration on March 18, 1994, Merit has helped industry professionals control white grubs, which are one of the most damaging and pervasive turf pests,” says Dr. Mike Ruizzo, business manager, CNIs, Bayer Environmental Science. “This sweepstakes is one way we are celebrating this important milestone, and saying thank you to our customers for their continued support.”

Industry professionals are automatically entered in the sweepstakes drawing via Merit purchases or mail-in entries. “Instant winner” prize cards can be found on all Merit packages, and must be redeemed online at Entries will be accepted through June 2004. Winners will be announced in the fall.

Merit, a broad-spectrum, systemic insecticide, has demonstrated an efficacy rate of greater than 90 percent on virtually every grub species. Merit may be used in preventive or curative applications, controlling the white grub complex from egg lay through second instar. It is available in five formulations – wettable powder (75WP), flowable (Merit 2), water-soluble packets (75WSP), and two granulars (0.5G and 2.5G).
