"Mosquitoes are a major health concern during the summer," said Ron Harrison, Ph.D., entomologist and Orkin technical services director. "Mosquitoes are known carriers of several diseases, including Zika virus, Chikungunya virus and West Nile virus, so people across the United States – whether their city is on the list or not – need to take precaution to help prevent mosquito bites," Harrison added.

No matter where you live, mosquito pose serious health risks. If you’re bitten by mosquitoes, ants, wasps, bees and many other insects there’s no better disease prevention product than Bite Helper™. Only Bite Helper™ employs proprietary Thermo-Pulse-Technology™ (TPT) to deliver pulsating heat to the site of the insect bite. The pulsations ensure that the heat penetrates its target so it can neutralize the toxic insect saliva and kill bacteria and viruses.
