ST. LOUIS -- Can you tell chickweed from dollarweed? Do you know the difference between regular ants and carpenter ants? There's now a website to help homeowners identify weed and pest problems, more importantly, how to get rid of them.
United Industries, a subsidiary of Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc., announced today the launch of new, user-friendly websites for the company and its brands. The websites are designed as go-to resources for people researching pest and weed problems. By providing easy-to-use tools to match pests with pictures on the site, homeowners now have an expert just a few clicks away to guide them to the best solution for their problem.
"We wanted to not only give consumers tips on how to solve their weed and pest problems, but also help them find the right solution for their situation," said John Pailthorp, Division Vice President of Marketing for United Industries. "Our Solution Centers use images and detailed photos to take the guesswork out of pest problems and help people find the solutions that best fit their home."
To celebrate the launch of the websites, United Industries is offering a mail-in rebate of up to $3 for all Spectracide®, Cutter®*, Hot Shot®, Repel® and Garden Safe®** products. The rebate is available in the "Offers and Promotions" section of United Industries' website and is valid for purchases made between April 4 and May 4, 2011. Rebates must be received by May 20, 2011.

The websites include resources such as photos, an "ask the expert" feature, and localized tips to make it easy to match bugs and weeds with the products that will work best.
