Hopefully, by now all of us are aware of the dangers that mosquito bites can cause. Not only do mosquito bites itch like mad and cause severe discomfort in our lives,the bite from that pesky mosquito can be carrying a disease or bacteria that can make us very ill and in some cases even prove fatal.

I am sure you want  to keep yourself and your family happy and healthy during the mosquito season, and free of mosquito bites. Here is the question I ask you…

Would you rather spray yourself ( meaning your body) every time you have to go outside OR spray your property to control those pesky mosquitoes?

I am sure most of you would answer the latter. Having to continuously apply topical insect repellent every time you venture outdoors can be time-consuming, irritating and if you live in an area of the country where mosquitoes are extremely bad, quite expensive. Not only do topical insect repellents such as DEET, pose health risks when used excessively, they are sticky, and most smell bad. Do you want to host a backyard graduation party for your son smelling like bug spray? Some chemicals in common topical insect repellents can even keep you from sleeping well at night and affect your mood.

Pulling malaria from mosquitoes to fight disease

“WASHINGTON– Think your job’s tedious? Try beheading 100 mosquitoes an hour.

Gently, no smushing allowed. Malaria parasites lurk in these mosquitoes’ salivary glands, and a small company on the outskirts of the nation’s capital needs them unharmed for a dramatic test – attempting the first live vaccine to fight malaria.

A global push is on to eradicate this ancient scourge, and increasingly scientists are exploring how to use the mosquito itself to help – not just with the vaccine research but also, conversely, by breeding insects that are less able to spread malaria. “

The article mentions some scary statistics. Nearly a quarter-billion people get malaria each year, and it kills almost 1 million.

While malaria is not a problem in the U.S., the West Nile Virus and Lyme Disease are.

Protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquitoes and ticks with the help of Mosquito Squad. It’s fast, easy, AND it takes the worry out of outdoor fun.
