Help the Hungry!

Help the Hungry!



For the 2nd year in a row, Mosquito Joe of Baltimore has teamed up with the Maryland Food Bank to Help the Hungry.  In anticipation of the Thanksgiving Holiday, we have again organized a food drive for the months of September and October.

There are two options.  For our current customers, we will be collecting food on our regular Mosquito Joe stops during these two months.  If you would like to help, please just leave a can or two of unexpired, non-perishable food on your front door step.  Our technicians will collect the cans during our service and get it back to the office.  At the office, we will organize and get everything to the food bank in a timely manner.

You are also always welcome to drop any food items you would like to donate to our office location at:

152 Blades Lane, Suite N, Glen Burnie, MD  21060

We are open most days from 7 AM to 6 PM.

Last year, we were able to collect and donate over 100 items weighing in at over 130 LBS.  We would like to double or triple that amount this year.  We firmly believe that most people want to help, but simply do not have time.

So, please spread the word and help us Help the Hungry this year!

Mosquito Joe talks mosquito control with WBAL-TV 11

Mosquito Joe talks mosquito control with WBAL-TV 11

With the heavy rain this season, the mosquito problem in Baltimore has been particularly bad.  WBAL-TV 11’s Kim Dacey recently talked to us about local mosquito control issues and how our outdoor pest control services are helping customers get their yards back.  In this news segment, Mosquito Joe owner Kurt Godwin talks about ways homeowners can help keep their yards a little more bite-free this summer. Kurt shares some interesting (and somewhat scary) facts, including that just a Pepsi cap of standing water is enough for mosquitoes to breed in. We encourage all Baltimore homeowners to dump any standing water in their yards to avoid encouraging the mosquito population in your yard to grow. Some tips on ways to do this include:

  • Regularly empty ponds, bird baths, fountains, plant pots, buckets, barrels, tarps, toys, pet water dishes or anywhere else that water may gather.
  • Walk through the yard after every rain and empty any containers or areas where water has collected. Also watch for puddles where condensation gathers from the AC unit.
  • Clean out gutters to avoid standing water. Examine them for clogs and damage that would cause water to collect.
  • Make sure there are no low spots under decks where water can hide. Dogs love to make low spots to lie under decks because it’s cool.
  • Drill holes in the bottom of tire swings to prevent rainwater from accumulating. Do the same for garbage or recycling bins that reside outdoors.
  • Use soil to fill in low areas in lawns and landscaped areas where rainwater may collect and stand for more than seven days.
  • Repair leaky outdoor faucets.

For stronger protection against mosquitoes, call Mosquito Joe to create a barrier around your yard to eradicate mosquitoes.  Our experienced technicians are full of additional tips and take pride in talking you through issues specific to your yard on service calls. If you have any questions about mosquito control issues or what we do, please feel free to email us at [email protected].
