Mosquito Joe & Nothing But Nets
On May 4, 2017, Mosquito Joe and the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign announced their new partnership. As a partner, we have helped raise funds and awareness about mosquito-borne illnesses and the importance of mosquito control through our Beat the Bloodsuckers and MoJo Bites Back campaigns.
Nothing But Nets is the world’s largest grassroots campaign fighting malaria, which is caused by a single mosquito bite. Malaria is preventable and treatable and for many families, insecticide-treated bed nets are the most effective way to stay healthy. Nothing But Nets asks their customers for just $10, which sends two bed nets to those in need in sub-Saharan Africa, South-East Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. With the help of partners and supporters like us, Nothing But Nets has raised over $70 million to help deliver more than 13 million bed nets, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics, treatment and training of healthcare workers.
Malaria is a disease that rarely crosses our minds because, in the United States, malaria has been eliminated. However, nearly half of the world’s population is at risk of this disease. Malaria is transmitted to people through the bites of Anopheles mosquitoes, which primarily bite at night and carry the life-threatening disease caused by the blood parasite Plasmodium. Nothing But Nets has a goal to end malaria for good. With the help of partners and customers like you, we can make this happen.
As Mosquito Joe’s presence grows to 33 states, we provide exceptional pest control services in hundreds of communities across the country. By protecting families from mosquitoes, ticks and fleas, we are making outside fun again. Now, with partnering with Nothing But Nets, we are taking a stronger stance against mosquitoes. Our Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign is one of the many ways that we are doing this.
Beat the Bloodsuckers
The Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign will take place during Mosquito Control Awareness Week, which is June 23-29, 2019. For the third year in a row, Mosquito Joe has partnered with Nothing But Nets. For every new Mosquito Joe customer that signs up that week, we will send two bed nets to families that are in need.* Last year, our company raised over $24,000, sending 2,413 life-saving nets during Mosquito Control Awareness Week! To make this year even better, make sure you give your local Mosquito Joe a call to get on the schedule the week of June 23-29. And if you are already a customer, Share the MoJo with your friends and let them know how they can help Beat the Bloodsuckers. Wondering how far your $10 donation reaches? Watch the video provided by Nothing But Nets to see the life of a bed net and how far your donation truly reaches.
Mosquito Joe is thankful we are able to partner with such a great organization and look forward to all of the success Beat the Bloodsuckers 2019 will bring. Another way that you can support us in our mission is by donating to our campaign as we raise funds for malaria and bring awareness to malaria-stricken areas. Help us Beat the Bloodsuckers and make a difference this Mosquito Control Awareness Week by signing up for a service or simply by making a personal donation. It will only cost you $10 to send a net; make a difference for a family in need today.
