NORFOLK, Va ., (July 20, 2015) - Mosquito Squad, America's leading brand dedicated exclusively to controlling annoying pests like mosquitoes and ticks that transmit disease and impact backyard experiences, is expanding into Williamsburg.
Known as "The Squad", the company specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces. The category of outdoor pest control is one of fastest growing in America, leading Dean Ives, to help people and pets enjoy the outdoors. Ives wanted to provide a service to help people in an even greater area spend time outdoors, so he expanded his previous location to include Williamsburg this year. "The Squad" was recently recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top franchises in the country and the only outdoor pest control organization to make the list.
"Anyone who spends time outside in this part of the country knows all too well the nuisance and dangers of mosquitoes and ticks. We are dedicated to educating homeowners on taking a proactive approach to eliminating them. The expansion of Mosquito Squad into Williamsburg provides an opportunity for local homeowners to reduce their exposure to mosquitoes and ticks and increases their enjoyment of the outdoors," says Ives. "Living where we do, we have become accustomed to abandoning our yards to avoid outdoor pests. With Mosquito Squad, you can take back your yard."
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), vector-borne diseases are among the most complex of all infectious diseases to prevent and control. Not only is it difficult to predict the habits of mosquitoes and ticks, but most vector-borne viruses or bacteria infect animals as well as humans. West Nile virus (WNV) Chikungunya virus and the emerging Bourbon virus sicken thousands annually in the U.S. Tick-borne Lyme Disease causes over 300,000 estimated human illnesses annually along with other rickettsial diseases, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF), ehrlichiosis, and anaplasmosis, are responsible for over 4,000 U.S. cases each year, including some that result in death.
Based out of Norfolk, Va., this location covers the Hampton Roads area, now including Williamsburg. Contact Ives at mosquitosquadhamptonroads.com or by phone at 757-422-2483.
