Season for West Nile Virus/EEE Reportings Begin; Mosquito Vacuum Helps Reduce Backyard Mosquito Population
Date:7/31/2008

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Late summer and early fall are prime seasons for the detection and reporting of mosquito-borne illnesses like West Nile Virus and EEE by health departments and mosquito control boards. (Editor's note: click here for a list of 2008 cases reported in your area: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/surv&controlCaseCount08_detailed.htm)

Now is the time to take action and help your family and pets by installing a propane-fueled trap in your backyard, the latest in insect control technology. Independent tests show the propane-fueled Mosquito Vacuum outcatches the competition by a 2:1 ratio.

Offering easy set-up, reliability, and affordability, the Mosquito Vacuum is a great way for families to reclaim their backyard in about three weeks. Even the best backyard "staycation" can be ruined by annoying biting mosquitoes, turning a day of play into an itchy evening tending to bites. And mosquitoes are not only an annoyance; they are also carriers of West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and dog heartworm among other illnesses.

Remember to apply repellant and get protected, as mosquitoes are prevalent anywhere where there are CO2-emitting humans: summer camps, sports training, fall festivals, Labor Day activities, and outdoor family reunions.

Kaz, Inc. recently launched the http://www.StingerVac.com site to keep up with consumer demand for the product at the end of the season when WNV and EEE cases are reported, and media attention is high. For a limited time, the site is offering a $50 discount plus free shipping on the CT100 Mosquito Vacuum. The product is also available at Home Depot (sold as Nosquito) and Lowes stores nationwide.

In the United States, the Center for Disease Control recorded over 3,500 human cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) in 2007, resulting in 109 deaths. Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and Dog Heartworm -- both spread by mosquitoes -- also pose a significant and continued threat this coming year.

The combination of carbon dioxide, heat, moisture and exclusive, multi-scent bait makes the Mosquito Vacuum more effective than any other trapping device sold at retail today, according to independent tests. "Quick fixes" like sprays, candles and lotions offer only temporary relief, but Mosquito Vacuum is odorless and silent, providing continuous 24-hour protection from mosquitoes, black flies, gnats, and no-see-ums.

Headquartered in Southborough, Mass., Kaz, Inc. (http://www.kaz.com) is a trusted and dedicated healthcare and home comfort product manufacturer. Kaz has offered high-quality home environment products for 70 years.
