Mosquito Squad Gears Up for Spring Season with New Locations Ready to Battle Mosquito Borne Illnesses Including Chukungunya
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) April 06, 2015 - Spring is always a fantastic time of year. For many American Consumers, the thought of spring brings warm skies, green grass, bright flowers and the soft tweeting of birds to mind. For Mosquito Squad franchise owners and their corporate team, spring means warm weather and April showers which bring back puddles and pooling water, the mosquito’s breeding ground. A common misconception among consumers is that lakes, ponds and streams are naturally habitats for breeding mosquitoes. However, Mosquitoes cannot breed successfully in flowing water; they need shallow water away from fish and other predators to protect their larvae.
With the new breeding grounds the rain can bring, thousands of mosquitoes with begin invading outdoor spaces throughout the US and bringing with them the mosquito borne illnesses. Last year Chikungunya made its presence here in the United States causing the Center for Disease Control to start preparing for action. Health officials have already begun bracing for the upcoming season by sharing news and information on effective mosquito control programs.
Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes. The disease causes fever and severe joint pain that can often be debilitating and can vary in duration. In conjunction other symptoms also include muscle pain, headaches, nausea, fatigue and rashes. While there is currently no cure for Chikungunya, treatments are focused on relieving the symptoms and most patients recover fully.
As the very first mosquito control business, Mosquito Squad has spent years perfecting services for the prevention and protection from mosquitoes, fleas and ticks. The barrier spray services have helped the system grow to become the nation’s largest and most trusted choice by American consumers.
Mosquito Squad franchisees provide US consumers protective services throughout the season, including Spring and Summer, when mosquito pressure is at its highest. Mosquito Squad franchisees also educate consumers on helpful tips to protect their outdoor spaces and limit the proximity of mosquito breeding sites. The 5 T’s (Tip, Toss, Turn, remove Tarps, Treat) focus on educating consumers in a fun way.
With the growing demand for mosquito control and protection services, Mosquito Squad locations across the country continue to grow each year. In fact, Mosquito Squad franchisees report that about 75% of each year’s clients remain customers from one season to the next, and refer their friends and family creating a snowball effect for continued growth.
“With the growing awareness of the diseases being spread through mosquito contact, Mosquito Squad is receiving hundreds of inquiries each month from prospective entrepreneurs who want to join THE SQUAD (Mosquito Squad) and help protect their communities,” shared Mosquito Squad Franchise Recruitment Consultant for Mosquito Squad, Tricia Charles.
