Camping Labor Day weekend? Mosquitoes may invade more than your tent as leading Wi-Fi provider partners with End Malaria campaign

"As campers flock to the outdoors this Labor Day weekend, they may be surprised when mosquitoes show up on their computer screen as well as outside their tent.

Vacationers in 775 campgrounds across 48 states will see a 30-second video prior to accessing the Internet, featuring a buzzing noise, information about malaria, and the opportunity to donate a bed net to protect a child in Africa."
