Mosquito Shield Responds to Weather-induced West Nile Virus Alert
June 10, 2013 - New England-based mosquito and tick control firm endorses launching a pre-emptive strike under “perfect conditions” for mosquito-borne illnesses.
With large amounts of rain and temperatures reaching into the 90s during the first week of June, experts are warning that a higher occurrence of West Nile Virus in the Northeast is likely during the summer of 2013. Public health officials contend that this month’s proliferation of rain and heat amounts to the “perfect storm” for mosquitoes that thrive in warm, moist environments.
Mosquito Shield is responding to the threat with their Guaranteed Protection Plan which touts homeowner peace of mind and treatment flexibility over a specific number of visits.
“The flexibility of our Guaranteed Protection Plan allows us to respond to situations like this and return to properties sooner,” said David Briggs, Founder and President of Mosquito Shield. “Twelve years of experience has taught us that you can’t control mosquitoes on a set schedule.”
The West Nile virus season usually occurs from late summer to the early fall, but this changes every year depending on the heat, moisture, and other environmental patterns. This year, with the large amount of rain and unseasonably warm temperatures, West Nile virus is once again in the news.
Unlike many other mosquito and pest control companies which sell a set number of visits, Mosquito Shield is constantly monitoring mosquito populations and weather patterns to be able to react as needed to changes in both. At a minimum, Mosquito Shield services a property approximately every two weeks.
“You need to be on their schedule or you will never be able to eliminate them,” said Briggs. “Our three pronged approach of killing, masking and repelling will guarantee a safer, more effective solution.”
Mosquito Shield uses its own proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend of natural oils (99.97 percent of the blend consists of natural ingredients) to eliminate existing populations, mask the food source, and create a barrier that grows stronger as the season progresses.
