Richmond, VA (PRWEB) May 16, 2016
Mosquito Squad®, the original mosquito elimination franchise company founded in 2005 and inventor of the protective Barrier Treatment, today announced a significant education initiative in sharing valuable information about the prevention of mosquito-borne diseases, including risks posed by the Zika virus.
ZikaNewsSource.com (Zika News Source™) now features daily updates with the most noteworthy and timely news about the Zika virus by aggregating key information disseminated by the media and global health organizations.
“Despite a lot of coverage in the media, there appears to be either a lack of awareness or, sometimes, misunderstanding about the origins and spread of the Zika virus,” said Chris Grandpre, CEO of Outdoor Living Brands, the parent company of Mosquito Squad. “We felt that with the beginning of the 2016 mosquito season and consistent with our philosophy of educating Americans on how to reduce mosquito breeding grounds, we can further serve the American public by proving a consolidated source of dependable information about Zika that they can trust.”
Zika News Source will be updated each day with the most significant developments issued by the news bureaus, global health organizations and various media sources.
Mosquito Squad franchisees will be encouraged to use the Zika News Source content and leverage it in their social media posts to heighten awareness on how the virus is spreading as the threat of it moving upward into the United States appears likely. More importantly, Mosquito Squad will continue educating the public and its customers about how to reduce mosquito breeding grounds to slow the spread of Zika as much as possible.
