San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
The uncommonly hot and humid winter has brought an influx of insects to Texas that USA Today is calling the “Bug Bonanza” of 2012. Noting this timely issue, Alterra, Inc, a fresh breed of environmentally responsible pest control, is proud to announce the opening of a new location in San Antonio, Texas.
Of course, any basketball city would be happy to see their team still in the NBA Playoffs in June, however, what residents of San Antonio may not realize is that while the Spurs take on the Oklahoma City Thunder, another battle is raging on a more microscopic scale. Yes, due to the radically warmer winter, Texas is being hit by a sharp increase of pest infestations resulting from the uncharacteristically heavy heat and humidity, resulting in an abundance of spiders, cockroaches, wasps and fire ants.
In addition to San Antonio, Alterra is opening 12 other locations nationwide, including a total of four Texas branches. While this could be perceived as highly aggressive corporate growth, CEO David Royce believes that Alterra will be well received in all of its new markets.
“I attribute Alterra’s growth to each one of our employees diligently living by our 10 Core Values, which are the back bone of our culture,” says Royce about Alterra’s character. “Alterra Pest Control’s family environment helps to strengthen our team’s willingness to WOW customers and promote referrals. In any business, you have to get the right people onboard to ensure long-term success.”
Although this “Bug Bonanza” is growing with continuing warmer temperatures, Alterra Pest Control and their new San Antonio location are confident that they will be able to provide progressive pest control solutions for all of their customers’ pest needs.
Alterra provides residential and commercial pest control services to over 400 cities nationwide (in 13 major markets). Alterra is accredited with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and specializes in environmentally responsible pest control solutions. Alterra is also a proud partner of the United Nation’s Foundation “Nothing But Nets” which helps stop the spread of Malaria transmitted by mosquito bites. Alterra dedicates a portion of company profits annually to “Nothing But Nets” providing insecticide-treated bed nets to help save the lives of millions in underdeveloped countries.
