We love protecting families from mosquitoes and ticks in their own backyards, but it's very important to take precautions when you're out trailblazing the wilderness, too. Here are a few tips 👇

1. BUG SPRAY 🦟
Don’t leave home without it. Whether you’re camping, hiking or even just taking a walk in the park, a few sprays of this on your skin and clothing will help you enjoy your outdoor adventure without having to be on swat alert.

2. TEA TREE OIL 🌿
While tea tree oil can be healthy and healing for humans, it’s actually quite toxic to many insects. Put some on your skin before heading outside to reduce the risk of getting bit. If a mosquito manages to slip through, applying tea tree oil to the affected area will provide immediate relief.

3. SOCKS 🧦
Hiking is one of summer’s most popular activities and while it provides us with gorgeous sceneries and breathtaking views, it also increases our exposure to mosquitoes and ticks. So before you embark on your next rugged adventure, throw long socks on and tuck in the bottom of your pants to seal the entryway for any pests.

4. HAT 🧢
There’s nothing worse than getting a bug stuck in your hair, especially when it’s a mosquito with its own agenda. We’ve all been that person at least once in our lives who feels or hears a bug fly in, then proceeds to flail our bodies around until it’s out. Do yourself a favor and sport a hat to avoid a potential public catastrophe.

Malaria No More + Mosquito Squad

MOSQUITO SQUAD CHICAGO DONATES $1 ON BEHALF OF OUR CUSTOMERS FOR EVERY TREATMENT PERFORMED.


Malaria No More Mosquito Squad logo

As mosquito control experts, we know that, beside being an annoyance, mosquitoes carry many potentially deadly diseases, the most prevalent being malaria. Desipite malaria being mostly eradicated in the US over 50 years ago, over 250 million citizens of African nations contract malaria each year, with over 2,000 children alone being killed each day.

A few years ago, Mosquito Squad forged a relationship with Malaria No More, a nonprofit organization with the lofty, but very admirable goal of ending malaria deaths in Africa. While we fight the bite for our client’s everyday here in the US, it’s more based around the nuisance of mosquitoes rather than the life threatening dangers (though they certainly still exist, even more so with ticks).

We know that just $1 can save a life – that’s why we donate $1 for every treatment that we perform.

Over the last three years, Mosquito Squad’s efforts have saved nearly 100,000 lives. In January 2014, Mosquito Squad launched what we like to call Dread’s Challenge: a three-year initiative to save an additional 250,000 lives. Here in Chicago we donated over $17,000 in 2014 and are on pace to donate more than $25,000 in 2015.

Please help contribute to this great cause by donating at SwatMalaria.net. Again, every $1 contribution funds the delivery and administration of a malaria test and the ACT treatment needed to successfully treat the disease and save a life.
