RICHMOND, Va. - June 16, 2015 // PRNewswire // - As part of Mosquito Control Awareness Week, June 21 – 27, 2015, TV host and backyard expert Jason Cameron has teamed up with Mosquito Squad and its Squad of technicians to create the best hacks to keep backyards free of annoying, and often dangerous, mosquitoes.
Cameron's top hack? Walk your yard.
"Mosquitoes breed in standing water and water can accumulate in virtually every nook of a backyard, whether it's a small yard or a McMansion, if you're not out in the yard seeing what's out there, and keeping it clean, you're asking for mosquitoes to breed," Cameron said.
The Squad, the nation's leading firm specializing in mosquito and tick elimination, just signed its 170th franchise and is expanding quickly due to homeowner demand for services that eradicate bothersome and disease bearing mosquitoes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mosquitoes can transmit West Nile Virus, Chikungunya and other arboviruses.
As The Squad continues its work with homeowners in the U.S., Rob White, the company's vice president, reminds Americans to take both a local and global view of mosquito control.
"With all the fun associated with summer, it's easy to forget that in many parts of the world, mosquito bites can lead to death," White said. "The Squad has supported the efforts of Malaria No More since 2011 and we urge you to donate to their Power of One (Po1) campaign, where just $1 provides a life-saving test and treatment for a child in Africa."
Donations are accepted at SwatMalaria.net.
In addition to supporting Malaria No More, Cameron encourages homeowners to get up close and personal in their yards with the following hacks to reduce and eliminate mosquito breeding.
With more than 170 franchise locations nationwide, Mosquito Squad specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces, allowing Americans to enjoy their yards, outdoor living spaces, special events and green spaces. The Squad has been a proud supporter of Malaria No More since 2011. For more information, visit www.MosquitoSquad.com, www.MosquitoSquadFranchise.com and www.OutdoorLivingBrands.com.
