Company accepting entries for #ProtectMySquad contest through June 28
RICHMOND, Va. — Mosquito Squad, the largest and most trusted mosquito and tick control franchise in North America, announced today the launch of its Protect Your Squad campaign to raise awareness about the importance of mosquito protection and help consumers stay informed on best practices to keep their families and pets safe. This year, the brand is once again running its #ProtectMySquad contest where participants will have a chance to win a seasonal mosquito control package and a Big Green Egg grill.
“Recent reports indicate that tick and mosquito-borne diseases have tripled since 2004 and with a higher risk of contracting Lyme, West Nile, Zika and other pest-borne illnesses, it’s so important to take mosquito control seriously,” said Amy Lawhorne, chief operating officer of Mosquito Squad. “For the third year in a row, we’re using our Protect Your Squad campaign as a platform to engage with consumers and ensure they’re equipped to protect themselves and others throughout mosquito season. As a trusted source, it’s up to us to share our expert practices and insights so consumers remain educated and aware.”
In an effort to further spread the message about the importance of mosquito protection, Mosquito Squad has also launched its #ProtectMySquad contest. To enter, participants must post a photo or video of a squad they want to protect to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or the contest landing page using the hashtag #ProtectMySquad, tagging Mosquito Squad on the respective platform and sharing their zip code.
The contest is open for entries beginning today, May 1, through June 28. Mosquito Squad will select one winner at random mid-way through the contest and announce them on social media on Memorial Day, May 27. Once entries close, a second winner will be selected and announced on July 4. The first winner will receive a full season mosquito protection package of the original Mosquito Squad Protective Barrier Treatment and the second will receive a Big Green Egg, the coveted kamado-style ceramic charcoal barbecue cooker perfect for summer entertaining.
“We look forward to seeing everyone’s entries as we help them protect their squads throughout the season,” added Lawhorne.
