After the storm comes the mosquitoes. As if 150 mile per hour winds and historic flooding weren’t enough, standing water breeds an overwhelming number of mosquitoes who then prey on the already weary residents of St. Croix.
To help combat this, we’ve ordered 4,000 Mosquito Superbands through Evergreen Research, which donated an additional 480 bands. We’re trying to raise additional funds in order to keep a consistent supply flowing into St. Croix to protect residents, particularly those most vulnerable, like school aged children.
These awesome little bands repel mosquitoes for up to 250 hours.
We’re asking our community to donate $140 to purchase 400 superbands. Enough of these donations can help us supplying young children with these bands to keep the mosquitoes at bay.
