BEDFORD, Mass. (July 26, 2016) -- Thermacell Repellents, Inc., a leading manufacturer of area mosquito repellent products, will sponsor a mosquito seminar at Outdoor Retailer on August 3, 2016. With an Entomologist among the panelists, the seminar will provide information on Zika and other mosquito borne diseases of concern; with an overall focus on how to protect the outdoor enthusiast and implications for outdoor retailers.

Learn all about mosquito borne diseases and what they mean for the outdoor enthusiast/retailer, at Thermacell's FREE seminar. Our expert panel will discuss how to be prepared and mitigate against the threats mosquitoes pose. You will leave armed with the information needed to inform and protect your customers. 

“Given the recent news cycles dominated by Zika and other mosquito borne diseases, we felt it would be pertinent to provide accurate and tailored information to the outdoor community,” said Kyle Adelman, marketing manager at Thermacell. “The misinformation that gets circulated can be confusing and overwhelming, which is why we wanted to sponsor this seminar, to provide clear information and actionable protection strategies.”

Dr. Bill Donahue, Entomologist and owner of Sierra Research Laboratories, Inc.

Erika Fiksdal, General Manager, Adventure 16 West Los Angeles (flagship).
