Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/30/2014 -- Sales of home insecticides increased by 4% in current terms in 2013 to reach A$205 million. This represented a recovery from the decline of the previous year. With sales highly dependent on weather changes, home insecticides benefited from changes in weather patterns, such as the warm winter of 2013. In fact, the average temperature in July was 20 degrees Celsius, three degrees higher than usual, which triggered an early outbreak of pests. Furthermore, the insect season was exacerbated in 2013 as a result of floods such as the one experienced in January in Queensland.
With a 51% value share, Reckitt Benckiser (Australia) Pty's Mortein continued to be the leading brand in 2013. For decades, it has been the most-popular insecticide brand in Australia, leading across all categories of home insecticides for the whole review period. In July 2013, the company launched six new products under the Mortein NaturGard brand, including an odourless control bomb, an auto protect indoor adjustable in eucalyptus and odourless versions, an odourless fly and mosquito killer and a citronella candle. The brand was heavily supported during 2013 with marketing and advertising, including a TV campaign aired in February 2013 for the NaturGard line of products and a strong presence in Facebook.
