Leading mosquito treatment company gives back to local and international communities

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mosquito Joe, the nation's leading mosquito control treatment

company serving residential and commercial customers nationwide, is recognizing National Mosquito Control Awareness Week between June 24 and June 30, 2018 with two charitable partnerships to promote the fight against mosquitoes both locally and internationally.

Now entering its sixth year of giving back, the brand will continue working with local blood banks to raise awareness about mosquito-borne illnesses and the importance of mosquito control through its "Beat the Bloodsuckers" campaign. For every new customer that receives a mosquito treatment service from their local Mosquito Joe location throughout the week, the brand will donate a percentage of those sales to local blood donation centers. This campaign also helps promote blood donation in local communities.

"Each year, Mosquito Control Awareness Week provides an opportunity for us to engage both our corporate team and local franchisees by extending our reach beyond mosquito control to educate customers to be prepared to fight pests, especially as concerns about mosquito-borne illnesses continue to grow," said Mosquito Joe President Lou Schager.

Additionally, Mosquito Joe and the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign will be partnering for the second year to raise awareness and funds to fight malaria. Participating Mosquito Joe locations across the country will engage new customers to help raise funds and awareness about mosquito-borne illnesses and the importance of mosquito control.

For each new customer serviced that week, franchisees will donate $10 to Nothing But Nets, to pay for an insecticide-treated bed net to be provided to a family in sub-Saharan Africa at risk of malaria and without the resources to stay protected.

"This partnership with Nothing But Nets has given us an additional opportunity to protect the communities that we serve with our outdoor pest control services, and also to give back to those in need who suffer from mosquito-borne illnesses in countries that our services don't reach," said Schager. "We're excited to be partnering with this great organization for another year."
