DALLAS, TX, September 28, 2021 – More than 1,000 builders of new homes have partnered with HomeTeam Pest Defense, the third largest residential pest control company in the U.S., to
install the Taexx® built-in pest control system in 1.5 million new homes.
Taexx creates a virtual barrier inside the walls of a home to strike pests where they live, hide, and
breed. Because Taexx delivers pest control treatment inside a home’s walls, it protects families
and pets, while efficiently combating pests where they are most vulnerable. Taexx also helps pest
control treatments last longer because they are protected from the elements.
“HomeTeam Pest Defense has been protecting homes and improving communities for 25 years,” said company president Brady Camp. “To reach 1.5 million installations of the Taexx system
during our anniversary year is a wonderful accomplishment, and it would not have been possible without our dedicated team of professionals across the country and our builder partners.”
The Taexx network of protection is a modern home feature that can only be installed during new
home construction before dry wall is put in place. Once installed, the system is efficiently serviced
through an external service hub on the outside of the home, enabling hassle-free service without the need for homeowners to be present.
An independent customer study found that nearly 97 percent of homeowners express “very high satisfaction” with the Taexx system. Built smarter to protect smarter, integrated pest control technology is a feature that buyers of new homes should ask for.
