Homeowners can access expert advice wherever they need it with the Spectracide Bug & Weed Identifier app, a free, intuitive mobile tool that takes the guesswork out of pest problems. The app allows users to search databases of insect, weed and disease types, capture bug and weed images of your own to get professional pointers, and explore the complete portfolio of Spectracide products. It also features a retail locator and provides product information and how-to-videos. Some of the app's newest features also include:
- An updated, simplified look that makes it fast and easy to get information about any bug or weed issue.
- A new "Buy Now" function that lets homeowners purchase the Spectracide products they need directly through the app.
- Pest identifying enhancements, including advanced filtering tools for quicker pest identification.
- Real-time updates from the Spectracide Facebook newsfeed with the latest news on new products, tips, coupons, giveaways and promotions.
