Bayer’s updated Bug ID app allows for the quick identification of insects and other commonly encountered pests.

Bayer’s Bug ID app was developed to assist homeowners in identifying Australia’s most commonly found pests. From spiders, ants and cockroaches to termites and bed bugs, the app provides high resolution pest images with detailed information regarding the different pest types, their habits, whether they pose a risk, and how to seek help in controlling them.

The Bug ID app not only helps homeowners to identify pests in or around their home, it also offers the capability to take a photo of an unidentified pest and send it through to Bayer for identification. In 2016, this ID capability was updated, and now users can fill out further details including size of bug, location found, surrounding environment, issues with the bug and more, making identification easier.

Bayer also recommends homeowners to contact a professional pest control firm to eradicate the pests successfully and to ensure they do not return. A list of general pest controllers and termite specialists are listed on the app for homeowners to contact. Daryle Swarz, pest market manager at Bayer said, “One of the many benefits of our Amplify Program for pest controllers is the fact they will be included on the Bug ID app. Registration for the Amplify Program is free, and can be easily completed online.”

Bayer’s Bug ID app is available for free download from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Pest managers who already have the app, can download the updated version.
