With hurricane season beginning in early summer and lasting through late fall, the threat of hurricanes is ongoing in the southern U.S. and impacts residents both inside and outside the home. From muggy weather conditions that can lead to a surge in bugs, to a variety of insects entering the home seeking refuge from the storm's damage, insect control is essential yet oftentimes overlooked in post-hurricane relief efforts.

Zevo aims to help Florida families stay protected from various insects. The brand has designated a portion of their $8 million donation of Instant Action Insect Killer, Ant, Roach & Spider and Instant Action Insect Killer, Ant, Roach & Fly to Matthew 25’s Hurricane Idalia disaster response. Both products will help residents and their families stay protected from the potential increase in both flying and crawling insects that hurricanes like Idalia can bring about.

“Post-hurricane relief and recovery efforts can be daunting to address for many people,” said Tim Mettey, Chief Executive Officer, Matthew 25: Ministries. “We’re incredibly grateful for Zevo’s donation that will give Florida residents one less thing to worry about so they are able to focus on rebuilding their lives without the concern of irritating insects.”

Zevo Kill Sprays offer effective protection against crawling and flying insects like spiders, roaches, ants, and flies. Zevo sprays are powered by essential oils to kill insects by targeting nervous system receptors vital to insects, not people or pets. Just spray to kill and wipe up what’s left behind with a clean cloth or paper towel.

"At Zevo, we know bugs can be an unnecessary stressor in every day life for many people, especially during an aftermath of a hurricane when wet weather conditions can cause insects to become more prevalent," said Chetan Parekh, Vice President & General Manager of Zevo at Procter & Gamble. "We wanted to offer our support to the families in Florida affected by Hurricane Idalia and provide them with Zevo’s dependable insect control solutions, so they don’t have to worry about the bugs during this critical time."

This year’s donation to M25 is a part of an ongoing partnership with the disaster relief organization. Since 2022, Zevo has supported communities affected by natural disasters during times of need.
