Thirteen years ago, the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) delcared the third week of June National Mosquito Control Awareness Week with the goal of raising public awareness for mosquito control issues. Mosquito bites are not only a nuisance, but they can be deadly. With the prominence of West Nile Virus and the persistence of malaria in certain parts of the world, it’s certainly important to raise awareness about how to protect yourself from these flying pests.
During National Mosquito Control Awareness Week professionals from the AMCA are encouraged to reach out to local media and offer their services to educate the public about mosquito control. Consider having a speaker to come to educate your employees on how to best protect themselves. Encourage healthy behavior with promotional insect repellent and swab kits.Your employees will appreciate your efforts to give them the tools necessary to protect their health and enjoy an itch-free summer!
