MILWAUKIE, Ore. - eTradeWire -- Axiom Eco-Pest Control is inviting Portland metro area residents to its "Fight the Bite" Blood Drive on Tuesday, June 25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Axiom headquarters, 4252 SE International Way in Milwaukie. The event is designed to raise awareness of mosquitoes in our environment and coincides with National Mosquito Control Awareness Week.

"Instead of donating blood to a mosquito, why not come in and give it to an organization that can really use it, the American Red Cross," said Chris Winson, Technical Director at Axiom Eco-Pest Control. "You'll not only give your blood to a good cause, you'll also have the opportunity to learn more about how to protect your family and pets from pesky and disease-carrying mosquitoes."

Axiom is partnering with the American Red Cross to have a blood mobile onsite and Clackamas County Vector Control District to offer the latest information on mosquitoes.
