Pest Management Professional: Mosquito Joe raises $7,100 for blood banks

Mosquito Joe, the national pest control franchise, launches Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign.

Mosquito Joe recently celebrated National Mosquito Control Awareness Week with their unique Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign, where local franchisees across the country partnered with local blood banks to raise awareness about mosquito-borne illnesses.

“At Mosquito Joe, we pride ourselves on our commitment to serving local communities by not only providing a valuable service, but also through philanthropic initiatives such as our Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign,” notes CEO and “Head Joe” Kevin Wilson.

In its third year, 40 out of 78 Mosquito Joe franchisees participated in the campaign and raised funds and organized blood drives for 20 different blood banks across the country. A total of $7,100 was raised this year.

“We’re looking forward to launching the campaign again next year because as our franchise continues to grow, we’ll be able to positively impact even more communities across the country,” Wilson said.

The Red Cross requires 15,000 blood donations every day to meet the needs of patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.
