HomeTeam Pest Defense Donates Taexx Built-in Pest Control System to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition family


Dallas, TX – February, 2008 – HomeTeam Pest Defense and its employees once again participated in helping an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition family rebuild their home and discover new possibilities. HomeTeam Pest Defense contributed a termite pretreatment and installed Taexx, its innovative built-in pest control system, to a newly-built home in Texas in an upcoming episode. In addition, the HomeTeam is donating one year of pest control service to the family.

The program is scheduled to air on Sunday, March 1 on ABC-TV at 8/7c (see local listings for exact times).
