Mosquito Shield joins fight against West Nile Virus and EEE

“Bite ‘Em Back” campaign encourages homeowners to be proactive in battle against mosquito-borne illnesses.

In the face of one of the worst mosquito seasons in recent memory, Mosquito Shield of Attleboro, MA is promoting its “Bite ‘Em Back” campaign to promote awareness and provide mosquito control solutions for communities that are being impacted by West Nile Virus and EEE.

Recently, health officials in Jamaica Plain and Falmouth, MA have identified the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus in mosquito pools, prompting health alerts in both communities. Similarly, several Connecticut towns have reported cases of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in mosquitoes which have put neighboring states like Rhode Island on alert.

West Nile Virus is most commonly transmitted to humans through mosquitoes. There are no medications to treat the West Nile Virus and a small percentage of those infected can develop serious neurological illnesses.

Similarly, there are no effective treatments for EEE, a viral disease impacting both humans and horses. EEE is considered one of the most severe mosquito-transmitted diseases in the U.S. with a 33 percent mortality rate.

Mosquito Shield is setting the industry standard for mosquito control utilizing a proprietary blend of 99.97 percent natural ingredients and a flexible spraying schedule that maximizes effectiveness.

While no pest control service can guarantee protection against mosquito-borne illnesses, Mosquito Shield’s effective and affordable barrier spray solution has proven to significantly reduce the mosquito population, and remain effective as a deterrent and repellant when applied as part of a maintenance program.

Mosquito Shield launched its “Bite ‘Em Back” campaign to promote awareness of the health risks of West Nile Virus and EEE while also offering discounted services to residents in the company’s franchise areas to help reduce the threat.

The “Bite ‘Em Back” slogan and Mosquito Shield’s pest-fighting mascot can be seen on the company’s trucks, marketing materials, and social media pages.
