Mosquito Control Awareness Week is coming this June 24 – 30th and Mosquito Joe is busy preparing to get involved. We are continuing our partnership with Nothing But Nets. Last year, for each customer that signed for service, we donated $10 to the Nothing But Nets program. Ten dollars buys one insecticide-treated bed net to protect a family from malaria. In 2017 our customers raised $14,305 in donations, above and beyond the donations given by each Mosquito Joe location participating. We are really excited to be involved with this great organization and are looking forward to seeing our partnership grow every year. You can learn more about Nothing But Nets by visiting them on the web at www.nothingbutnets.net. Watch this space for an update on this years’ efforts and results!
The American Mosquito Control Association heads up Mosquito Control Awareness Week every year and offers up tips and tricks to minimize mosquitoes in your yard. You can visit them at www.mosquito.org to learn more. They just released their newest video to celebrate the 83rd annual meeting of the association and you can see that here.
Meanwhile, there are some other fun happenings in June that you can check out, especially now that the kids are off school and antsy for excitement.
The Summer Sunset Series kicks off in Bryan in June. Every Thursday this month you can head downtown for a free concert. This year the line-up includes The Nightowls, Cilantro Boombox, The Chubby Knuckle Choir, Steady Legend and Roxy Roca. Concerts run from 8 to 10 pm and the venue opens at 7:30.
The 8th Annual Tastefest kicks off on June 7th at the Lonestar Convention Center in Conroe. Running from 5-8pm, you can sample all the culinary delights for $25 (includes 2 adult beverages and all you can eat) for adults, while kids 5 and under are free. You can buy your tickets here.
Speaking of kids home for the summer, our area offers a number of fun summer camps to keep your little ones learning and busy. Everything from basketball to robot making, Karate to Lego’s, there are a variety of camps for kids of all ages to participate in. If you are looking for something closer to home, grab an inexpensive water slide or hose, water balloons or water guns, and let the kids have at it in the yard. With Mosquito Joe treating you can rest assured they will enjoy the fun and games without bites and fire ants to ruin the fun. However, you chose to spend your June, we hope you have one full of fun and free of bugs!
