"Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease that kills over 850,000 people every year, most of them children,” says Scott Zide, Chief Operating Officer of Outdoor Living Brands, Mosquito Squad’s parent company.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 14, 2010
Mosquito Squad mosquito control, the mosquito exterminator, is happy to announce their new partnership with Malaria No More. Through fundraising for mosquito control in affected areas, Mosquito Squad hopes to help Malaria No More decrease the number of malaria-related deaths.
“Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease that kills over 850,000 people every year, most of them children,” says Scott Zide, Chief Operating Officer of Outdoor Living Brands, Mosquito Squad’s parent company. “Mosquito Squad was built on the idea of helping people fight insect-borne diseases, so working with Malaria No More was a no-brainer for us.”
Malaria No More is committed to ending malaria deaths in Africa by 2015 by supporting the distribution of effective, life-saving mosquito nets to help African families protect their children from malaria.
“Malaria No More is a wonderful organization that has helped millions of people,” says Zide. “They have spearheaded the movement against malaria and we’re honored to work with them.”
Mosquito Squad mosquito control will partner with Malaria No More by raising money at the national and local levels to purchase mosquito nets at a cost of $10 per net. Adds Zide; “our franchise owners understand that community awareness and outreach will not only help Malaria No More, but also the Mosquito Squad brand.”
As part of their community outreach, Mosquito Squad mosquito control will hold events in schools across the country, informing students and faculty about the importance of fighting malaria.
Mosquito Squad mosquito control is North America’s fastest growing outdoor living concept franchise. Known as the “mosquito exterminator,” Mosquito Squad mosquito control currently has five ways to ensure affordable, dependable and effective protection against the nuisance and dangers of mosquitoes (and ticks in participating locations) and the diseases they can carry, like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis and Lyme Disease, just to name a few.
1. 21-day Barrier Spray, which kills on contact and continues for three weeks.
2. 14-day All-Natural Spray, which kills adult mosquitoes on contact and has a two-week repellent effect.
3. Intensive Tick Treatment to reduce the spread of Lyme disease.
4. Special Event Spray for mosquito-free outdoor parties, weddings, picnics and concerts.
5. Automatic Misting System providing continuous control 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, via timed bursts of protective sprays at key times when mosquitoes are at their most active.
The Mosquito Squad mosquito control technology is similar to that which has proven to be extremely effective in the dairy farm and horse industries in controlling annoying flying insects. Part of Outdoor Living Brands’ franchise company based in Richmond, VA, Mosquito Squad mosquito control keeps families, residences, businesses and special events like outdoor weddings and picnics mosquito-free. Mosquito Squad mosquito control was recently rated one of the Top 50 Franchises by Franchise Business Review and received their 2010 Franchisee Satisfaction Award. Mosquito Squad mosquito control also received the World Class Franchise Designation from the Franchise Research Institute. For more information, visit http://www.MosquitoSquad.com.
