S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc. Key Developments

S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc. Introduces Raid Defense System

SC Johnson & Son, Inc. has introduced RAID Defense System. The company created the new Raid Defense System to empower people to beat the bugs with confidence. The Raid Defense System provides a regimen of products and non-chemical tips that work together to attack, control and prevent home-invading pests. It is informed by the expertise of the Raid Entomology Lab and will help consumers better battle bugs. Raid products are labeled as attack, control or prevent to help guide the consumer to a solution that holistically battles bugs. Too often, consumers approach pest control as a reactive measure, when there are proactive options to help keep problems from arising. Using the Raid System Creator tool at raidkillsbugs.com, consumers can indicate the bug they want to target and where the problem is happening to receive a customized regimen of Raid products and tips that work together to attack, control and prevent bug infestations. In addition to the System Creator, the site offers other helpful tools and advice suitable for general consumers, home and property owners, and renters - such as a product selector and comparison, a bug identifier, how-to videos and expert tips.
