June 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Established by the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA), a not-for-profit public service association, ‘Mosquito Week’ is designed to educate the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important service provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States and worldwide.

Mosquitoes, as well as being a nuisance, can also carry diseases that pose a threat, not only to our health but to our pets’ health.  Recognizing the importance of DIY mosquito control, and the key role the public can play in reducing mosquito populations, EnviroSafe Technologies, developed one of the first environmentally friendly mosquito traps for residential use. Safe, non-toxic and eco-friendly, Mega-Catch™ traps don’t use pesticides or sprays to kill mosquitoes.  

This year, Mega-Catch™ will join hundreds of other companies in recognizing and promoting the 15th annual National Mosquito Control Awareness Week, running June 26 – July 2 2011

And for non-profit Haven Horse Ranch that's good news.  The Florida based ranch wages a constant and ongoing battle against mosquitoes and no-see-ums, and already has a Mega-Catch™ trap at work.  “We are truly amazed at how well the Premier trap works,” reports Executive Director, Ric Lehman.  “First night’s catch was several hundred mosquitoes and no-see-ums, 3 yellow flies and one gypsy moth!”  

However, for Haven Horse Ranch, because of its size (25 acres) plus the number and location of mosquito breeding sites, one mosquito trap just isn’t enough.  As part of the company’s ongoing support for non-profit organizations and to help promote this year’s National Mosquito Control Awareness Week, Mega-Catch™ have donated another trap to the horse ranch - one of its new generation Pro 900 Premier mosquito traps.  Mega-Catch’s™ Nicky Stockman explains, “The more mosquito traps you have, the more mosquitoes you’ll catch.  Our company is only too happy to highlight Mosquito Control Awareness Week in a way that also provides ongoing assistance to such a worthwhile organization”.

Mosquito Week - a chance for everyone to make a contribution by introducing a comprehensive DIY mosquito control program that incorporates not only a proven trapping system like Mega-Catch's™ to reduce mosquito numbers but other sensible control measures as well.  

• Eliminate standing water in low spots, ditches and similar areas
• Empty receptacles that collect water (e.g. bird baths and pot plant saucers)
• Reduce breeding sites by keeping grass mown and gutters free of debris
• Install mosquito nets and screens to provide mosquito-free areas
• Wear light colored clothing which is less attractive to some mosquito species and if tightly woven, can give some protection against biting
• Use insect repellents. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the most effective repellents to use contain one of the following EPA registered active ingredients: DEET (N,N-Diethyl-m-toluamide), Picaridin (KBR3023) and Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus (p-menthane 3,8-diol).
