April 25th, 2009 – World Malaria Day!

April 25th, 2009 – World Malaria Day!

Each year, malaria afflicts approximately a half-billion people (roughly the population of the United States, Canada, and Mexico combined).
• Malaria kills more than a million people per year; 90 percent of those who die are African children.
• Every 30 seconds in Africa a child dies of malaria.
• Malaria incapacitates people, keeping countries poor. In addition to the health burden, malaria illness and death cost Africa about $12 billion per year.

Craig Thomas Pest Control continues to donate a portion of their vector sales to the Nothing but Nets Campaign. Nothing But Nets is a grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. This entire process of purchasing and distributing insecticide-treated bed nets to children under the age of five, as well as providing education and follow-up surveying on their use, is accomplished at the cost of just $10 per bed net. Although $10 for a bed net may not sound like much, the cost makes them out of reach for most people at risk of malaria in Africa, where many people survive on less than $1 a day. Malaria has been brought under control and even eliminated in many parts of Asia, Europe and the Americas. Yet in Africa, malaria infections have actually increased over the last three decades. Malaria is a leading cause of death of children in Africa, killing nearly one million children each year. Every day 3,000 children die from the disease. (Provided by
