Fighting Mosquitoes Both Home and Abroad is Easy – Here’s How
National Mosquito Control Awareness Week will be observed the week of June 25 through July 1, 2017, and Mosquito Joe of Tampa Bay would like to get the word out about its services to help reduce the annoyance and worry associated with mosquito bites. More importantly, through a system-wide partnership with the UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign, Mosquito Joe hopes to extend its mosquito-fighting reach across the world to end malaria’s deadly impact in sub-Saharan Africa.
Pest control has had a tremendous number of advances in the United States of America. Today we are presented with a myriad of options for controlling the ever-annoying mosquito. Americans can choose from: topical sprays containing DEET, picaridin, or essential oils; clothing, bedding, and tents soaked with a contact insecticide for camping; candles, foggers, traps, coils, lights, and baits available for purchase at stores and on the internet; and professional solutions such as misting systems and barrier sprays are available to consumers from several reputable firms. Additionally, government agencies offer education to citizens along with taxpayer-funded treatments like eastern mosquitofish, fogging trucks, and aerial application of pesticides and larvicides to help control mosquito populations.
The Challenges Abroad – and a Solution
Most of the above options are simply not available to those countries labelled as developing. Due to a lack of infrastructure, supply-chain, education, and other resources, mosquitoes are more than just an annoyance – they are deadly disease carrying insect that wreaks havoc on towns and villages. Diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue, West Nile, and Zika are spread rapidly through populations in these countries with little to no access to the prevention choices or medicines to treat them that we have in the United States.
Luckily, the United Nations Foundation’s global grassroots campaign Nothing But Nets seeks to provide life-saving mosquito bed netting to families and institutions in various African countries through partnerships with UNICEF, the World Health Organization, and the UN Refugee Agency, allowing people to sleep easy at night without getting bit by mosquitoes. Established in 2006, the Nothing But Nets campaign has raised over $45 million and has donated over seven million bed nets to sub-Saharan Africa. This simple solution has drastically reduced the impact of malaria, a disease that can be fatal, particularly for young children, without access to modern medicines.
