For many Chester County residents, mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, but a concern for West Nile Virus. In 2012, Chester County had one confirmed human case, the first since 2008. Also in 2012, 146 mosquito samples tested positive WNV, compared to just 29 positive samples in 2011.
With the dramatic increase of WNV in our area, we are thrilled to introduce our new business partner, Mosquito Shield®. The owners, Rick and Tina Brogan are the first Pennsylvania franchise to provide an environmentally friendly, 100% guaranteed solution to protect homes and businesses from mosquitoes all season long.
The Brogans will be serving primarily Greater Chester County, Delaware County, Southern Montgomery County, Main Line, and Philadelphia communities.
With the heat of the summer arriving and the moisture from the heavy amounts of rain this past month, it is the perfect climate for mosquitoes to thrive in. As of June 18, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is West Nile Virus activity in 14 states, including Pennsylvania. “We need this product in Pennsylvania and are thrilled to be the ones to offer it to our community, especially now as this summer’s heat and rains have been brutal and the mosquitoes are making themselves known,” said Tina Brogan.
Mosquito Shield specializes in mosquito control and starting in the spring of 2014 tick control. The specially formulated Mosquito Protection Blend™, which is 99.97% all natural, is applied around all areas of activity such as decks, patios, or pools throughout the entire mosquito season.
Owners, Rick and Tina Brogan have lived in and been serving the community since 1994. With their 20 plus years in business and with Tina certified as an Eco-consultant, Mosquito Shield is a perfect fit for this couple. Rick Brogan said, “As empty-nesters with college age children, we are excited to open a new chapter in our lives by introducing Mosquito Shield to our friends and neighbors in Pennsylvania.”
The Brogans have done a considerable amount of volunteer work in the community and are one of the sponsors for the upcoming 9th Annual Iron Hill Twilight Cycling Criterium event on July 6th.
