Malaria is the cancer of Africa

Help Mosquito Squad raise $30,000 in 30 days to save thousands of children

We hear the word cancer and we get a shiver down our spine. We find out that a friend or family member has cancer and we tremble knowing there’s a good chance they won’t live. In Africa, this cancer is Malaria. But, unlike cancer, Malaria is preventable and treatable. Then why is it killing so many people? Of the million people in Africa who die of Malaria each year, most of them are small children.

Here in the United States, we eradicated Malaria back in 1951. It’s completely treatable if it’s caught early. But, as we know prevention is the best cure. Malaria is carried by mosquitoes. These mosquitoes feed mostly at night while families and young children sleep. The best way to prevent night-time bites from disease-carrying mosquitoes is to cover the beds with bed nets. These nets are only $10. They could cover a bed where there’s only one infant or there may well be several children in that bed that are then all protected by the bed net.

People Are Being Eaten Alive!

I’m sure all of you who read this blog have realized that everyone here at Mosquito Squad mosquito control really hates mosquitoes. They can ruin your time outdoors by constantly flying around you and leave you with itchy bites for days if they get their way. In the worst cases, they can transmit dangerous diseases like West Nile and Encephalitis through their bites too! We’ve been hearing from many potential customers lately who are regularly bitten by mosquitoes and are looking for help. Here are just a few of their comments:

My front and back yards are full of mosquitoes, my kids look like they have chicken pox! – VA Beach

Our kids play ball in our yard at night, but we are in need of serious mosquito relief – East Central Minnesota

The mosquitoes are so bad here that they don’t bother to bite you and leave; they attack in packs, pick you up and fly you back to their nest! We cannot enjoy our patio or garden because of the mosquitoes! – Eastern Shore, MD

I have been waiting for a service like this to come to our area for nearly 3 years now! We are desperately needing your service as we live on tidal water and are insanely attacked by mosquitoes! – Norfolk, VA

I have a mosquito problem in my backyard. I’m currently putting in a new deck and patio and would like to be able to enjoy it! – Charlotte, NC

There is no longer a reason to suffer through the summer if you have a Mosquito Squad in your area. We’re here to protect you against those annoying and dangerous mosquitoes. Just call us at 877 – MOSQUAD to find your nearest office and Fight the Bite!

Mosquito Season is Fast Approaching

March 8,  approximately 6:15pm, my first mosquito bite of the 2010 season. Geez! It’s only March and last week I was freezing! We’ve had three nice days in a row in Richmond and now the bugs are here.

It's time to start thinking about controlling the mosquitoes in your area

Last night I got out of work and decided to take my dog for a run. The sun was still out and I could comfortably wear shorts for the workout. It was perfect, until we stopped for all of 2 minutes for a good sniff (the dog, not me) and I got bit! I couldn’t believe it! I thought it was a little early for mosquitoes, but after doing a little research I was wrong. The Washington Post had an article today about the approaching season and new ways scientists are trying to slow the spread of insect-borne disease. Officials in Delaware are getting ready to start spending the $2 million+ they allocate to mosquito control. And in Southwest Florida News-Press is giving out tips on how to minimize the number of mosquitoes in there area. The season has officially began!

Mosquito Squad is growing quickly. Check here to see if there is a squad protecting yards in your area.
