Swisher Launches Innovative Bed Bug Product

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swisher Hygiene Inc. ("Swisher") (Nasdaq:SWSH) (TSX:SWI), a leading provider of essential hygiene and sanitizing products and services, today announced the launch of Shield RTP (Ready to Protect), an easy-to-use insecticide engineered to eliminate bed bugs and its relatives on contact and provide lasting residual control.

Available in a 32-ounce spray bottle, Shield RTP uses naturally derived oils and plant extracts to safely and effectively eradicate the insects commonly found in and around bedding, sofas, chairs, carpets, rugs, cabinets, sinks, walls and luggage. Once applied, Shield RTP's non-toxic, non-flammable spray creates a chemical barrier stopping bed bug pests in their tracks, with the added benefit of reducing the chances of additional infestations.

"The introduction of Shield RTP helps expand the full suite of products we can provide to our customers," said Thomas C. Byrne, President and Chief Executive Officer of Swisher. "With the considerable increase over the last few years in bed bug outbreaks, we believe there is a particular need for this type of product in the hospitality industry."

Certified by the Food and Drug Administration as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS), Shield RTP is designed for use in a variety of highly populated environments such as hotels, airports, restaurants, schools, healthcare facilities and more. With the release of Shield RTP, Swisher provides business owners with a fast, affordable option to combat the documented rise of bedbugs across the United States.

To learn more about Shield RTP, contact a Swisher representative by calling 1.800.360.SWSH or by emailing customercare@swsh.com.
