ALERT: NATIONAL MOSQUITO CONTROL AWARENESS WEEK  

Five Tips You Need to Know to Keep Safe and enjoy Outdoor Living

 June 21, 2011 – According the Center for Disease Control (CDC) the summer of 2012 may be one of the worst on record in years for mosquitoes.  But the upcoming “National Mosquito Control Awareness Week” (June 24 – 30)  sponsored by the American Mosquito Control Association, is bad news for mosquitoes as it brings heightened attention on what Americans can do to protect themselves from the pesky and disease-bearing vectors.

Whether from the unseasonably warm spring or wet conditions, mosquitoes are already out in full force and several parts of the country have tested positive for the West Nile virus, which is carried by mosquitoes. I want people to contact me so that I can help them control the mosquito population on their property so they don’t have to worry about the diseases associated with Mosquito’s and ticks. Please contact me at gsoftly@mosquitosquad.com or just call me.

Here are some additional tips that have been proven to help.

1. TIP. Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including those in children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys; underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots include tarps, gutters, and flat roofs. 

2. TOSS. Remove excess grass, leaves, firewood and clippings from yards. 

3. TURN. Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like children’s portable sandboxes or plastic toys. 

4. REMOVE TARPS. If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats or sports equipment and grills aren’t taut, they’re holding water. 

5. TREAT. Utilize a mosquito elimination barrier treatment around the home and yard. Using a barrier treatment at home reduces the need for using DEET-containing bug spray on the body. Mosquito Squad’s eliminates up to 90% of the mosquitoes and ticks on a property.                        

While generally a nuisance, mosquitoes can carry dangerous diseases such as West Nile virus and encephalitis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that nearly 300,000 Americans have been sickened with West Nile Virus since it arrived in the U.S. 11 years ago.
