You’ve seen our stories about franchisees impacted by the hurricanes over the past few days, and we’d like to share one last story with you. Shelly Godde from Mosquito Squad of Saint Petersburg-Clearwater and Joe Bogdan from Mosquito Squad of Tampa Bay joined forces yesterday to provide complimentary mosquito protection to first responders in North Fort Myers, Florida.
On Sunday, Shelly received a call from Jeff Beaver of Storm Services, LLC, a company that helps support large numbers of workers who are temporarily relocated by providing housing, food, water, and sanitary facilities. They specialize in the design, construction, operation and management of full base camp setups.

Jeff said instead of waiting for Lee County to mobilize their mosquito control workers, he’d rather protect the camp now. The base camp was set up on the fairgrounds of Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers over the weekend. Their facilities and staff provide housing for first responders and others, like electrical teams and tree cutting professionals who have come from out of state to help. Unfortunately, the devoted laborers have been spending all day in the field working to help the community and returning to the base camp unable to sleep due to the relentless mosquitoes.

Shelly and Joe made the two-hour trip down to North Fort Myers and began treating the tents. It took about two hours to cover the fairgrounds property. They protected the sleeping, laundromat, and shower tents for Storm Services.

Thank you, Shelly and Joe. We applaud your efforts to help those in need.

TICKS / FLEAS

WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT YOU!

TICKS. CARRIERS OF LYME.

Similar to mosquitoes, ticks are vectors of disease. While still extremely serious, mosquito-borne disease only affects a few thousand people in the United States each year, while tick-borne disease afflicts tens of thousands. Dissimilar to mosquitoes, ticks don't bite and then carry on their way. With beak-like projections that plunge into the skin of their host, ticks will stay attached to a single host for as long as weeks at a time.

TICK-BORNE DISEASE A HIDDEN DANGER

Lyme Disease

Named after the town in Connecticut in which it was first found, Lyme disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in the United States, being diagnosed in all states except Hawaii. There are nearly 30,000 cases reported by the Centers for Disease Control each year. If caught early, Lyme disease responds well to a variety of antibiotics. Unfortunately, Lyme is not the easiest disease to diagnose. The telltale bull’s eye rash is only one of the many symptoms of Lyme, which also includes fever, fatigue and joint pain.

Ehrlichiosis

Although it does affect humans, ehrlichiosis is most commonly found in deer and dogs. The bacteria kills white blood cells causing headaches, fatigue and aches. Luckily, ehrlichiosis is treated with a series of antibiotics.
