Around 1,500 people in the US contracted Malaria last year.  Most cases were contracted in Malaria stricken countries and found upon returning to the US.  Precautions need to be taken when traveling to places such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.  Antimalarial drugs can be prescribed by your doctor prior to your visit.  Wear long clothing that have been soaked in or sprayed with permethrin.  Sleep under a treated bed net at night. These are the best ways to prevent contracting Malaria while visiting places where Malaria is a threat.

Mosquito Squad is dedicated to fighting Malaria by partnering with Malaria No More.

We want to help Malaria No More reach near zero malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. This goal is achievable by things as simple as treated bed nets.  One net is around $10 and will protect two children from being bitten by an infected mosquito at night.  We encourage our customers to donate to this very important cause.  You can visit malarianomore.org for more information or visit here to donate.

Mosquito Squad of Chelmsford and Cambridge offers the ultimate mosquito control for our customers.  We are happy to pass the word along about a great opportunity to help others less fortunate.  To find out more about our mosquito control products and services call Mosquito Squad of Chelmsford and Cambridge today!
