Eliminating Mosquitoes in Cameroon with Malaria No More
Owner of Mosquito Squad of Savannah – Hilton Head Brent Tatum (pictured below, far right) traveled to Cameroon in 2016 with Malaria No More, a not-for-profit global health organization that works to stop malaria deaths in Africa. He spent his time there educating locals about using nets and general awareness for the prevention of mosquitoes. He says, “we treat for mosquitoes in the U.S. mostly for quality of life; in Cameroon, Africa, it’s life or death.”
The trip hit home for him and all of us at Mosquito Squad of Savannah – Hilton Head. Fortunately, in the United States, we continue to treat our yards and take the precautions necessary to keep mosquito populations under control. We don’t even think about a thing as trivial as a mosquito bite; but, “Malaria is currently a top-5 killer in Africa, a disease that we eradicated in the U.S. in 1951” and it’s a disease that is solely spread by these tiny, flying, biting bugs.
The results of contracting Malaria can be tragic and it’s a problem for half the world’s population. In fact, Malaria.org says that “a child dies every two minutes from Malaria.” That’s why at Mosquito Squad of Savannah – Hilton Head, we’ve decided that for every treatment purchased from us, we’ll donate $1 to Malaria No More. These donations will help provide rapid-diagnostic tests, treatments, bed nets, and more in areas where it matters most.
