The Gift of the Outdoors – What to Get the Person Who Has Everything

2012 has flown by. I can’t believe that we are just around the corner from the holidays. There is so much to do! I’m the person who likes to have the perfect gift for everyone on my list well in advance of the holiday season. I try not to give the “typical” gifts, but something that may be a little more special.

This year, a lot of our Mosquito Squad franchisees are being asked for gift certificates for customers to give their friends and family. It’s such a great idea for all those people who have everything! It’s unique, it’s helpful and it will be much appreciated by all members of the household.

“Designed to rid yards of mosquitoes and unwanted insects, our customized barrier treatments make for the perfect unexpected holiday gift that keeps on giving,” said Scott Zide of Mosquito Squad. “With record numbers of West Nile virus and Lyme disease cases this year, eliminating as many vectors from the yard is more important than ever.”

Mosquito Squad gift certificates can be purchased in any amount, although we recommend purchasing them for a certain number of sprays or a whole season.

One of my girlfriends complained during the year that the mosquitoes in her yard were terrible, she doused herself in mosquito repellent, but often times she still got bites. For one reason or another, she never called for professional mosquito control. She’s a tough person to buy presents for because she never mentions anything that she really needs. This year, I’m considering getting her mosquito control barrier treatment.

To get a gift certificate for a friend or family member, contact the local Mosquito Squad office in the area the service will be done.
