Mosquito Shield of East CharlotteEast Charlotte
Our Story

Hi, we’re Saket Nigam and Sean Welsh and we’re the owners of Mosquito Shield of East Charlotte.

The mission of giving people their backyards back, and the more frequent servicing compared to competitors which separates Mosquito Shield from others, excites us the most. At Mosquito Shield of East Charlotte, our goal is to provide the best mosquito control with the highest levels of customer service, allowing our customers to enjoy your homes and time with family to the fullest. Our own business mission and vision are centered on giving people the ability to enjoy their families and friends in their yards without worrying about bites.

Owners Saket Nigam & Sean Welsh worked together and previously decided to team up to open a business together. Saket grew up in North Carolina living primarily in Raleigh until he went to college at UNC Chapel Hill. After a few years in New York and DC, he moved to Charlotte and has loved it in the city ever since.

Sean has lived between New York, DC, and now most recently San Francisco. Saket & Sean are excited to be a part of the Mosquito Shield team and help everyone get outside. We saw a need for a great mosquito control service after repeated mosquito bites in our yards, and the offerings in the market were not sufficient, which led us to start our Mosquito Shield business.

Having lived in Charlotte for over 7 years, Saket has lived and worked in Charlotte for the last 7 years. Sean has spent time in Charlotte over the last 5 years for work and has family in the area. He is planning to relocate over the next couple of years and is excited to offer a service that helps the community.

The East Charlotte territory covers 4 NC Counties. Saket & Sean work in the mortgage industry managing the loan origination process. This experience has led them to understand that customers want the best experience with staff that will help them, listen to them, and do their best each time they talk or meet. They understand that their customers want to enjoy their home inside and out.

While they have experience on the loan side, now they want to help people enjoy their home in other ways. They both love food, but hands down barbecue must be their favorite. The Smoke Pit in Concord is worth stopping by because who can say no to Ribs & Mac & Cheese! They often try to go to the Whitewater Center because it has such a mix of things to do.

Between trails, whitewater rafting, and all the other activities, there is so much to do, and a year pass is well worth the cost to do it all. Sean and his fiancé enjoy taking their two dogs to Freedom Park on the weekends to relax and enjoy the outdoors. We are homeowners in Charlotte and can empathize with our customers because we have dealt with the same issues of mosquitoes until we found Mosquito Shield.

This experience and connection to the community add to our credibility as business owners and service providers. We can relate to the issues of our customers and want to provide a solution that we enjoy ourselves. When asked what attracted him to Mosquito Shield, “Mosquito Shield is a great brand that has done the work to understand their customer’s problems.

I’ve used a mosquito spraying company before and the next day still had mosquito issues, and the fact that I would have had to pay for someone to come out again made me decide to never use that company again. When we looked at the products and saw how meticulous everything was organized and timed to make our tech’s and our customer’s lives better it was an easy decision to want to be a part of the team. We have set goals to try and grow by 2 vans each year and be the highest-rated Mosquito spraying business in the area.

With a focus on customer satisfaction, we provide a 100% money-back guarantee, and this can be listed on our website. Our commitment to quality and understanding of our clients’ needs drives our business. We are enthusiastic about helping others in our community enjoy their outdoor spaces to the fullest.

Our Story

Mosquito Shield® was founded in 2001 as a direct answer to a major problem: mosquitoes. In the absence of an effective mosquito control service and the inadequacy of personal products, a new solution was necessary.

For the past two decades, we’ve mastered our blend of all-natural oils and select control products to become that solution. We’ve tested different blends, application methods, and frequencies of applications to perfect an effective and responsible solution. The result is Mosquito Shield.

Our numbers would demonstrate that we’ve filled the gap. 8 out of every 10 customers return year after year, and we now service tens of thousands of American households.

To hear what our clients are saying, please visit our customer reviews and testimonials section.


Mosquito Shield® is a leading residential mosquito and tick control service with over 120 franchise locations across the United States. Each of Mosquito Shield’s franchises are owned and operated by independent local business men and women.

With the threat of mosquito and tick-borne illnesses on the rise in the United States, Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporation was launched in 2013 and has since developed into a leading franchise opportunity in the growing pest-control industry.

Our technicians are trained specifically on mosquito and tick control products. We’re not just another guy with a backpack and van or a lawn care provider that will “set and forget” later. This is what we do and we take it very seriously. Not only are our technicians trained on products, they’re trained on mosquito and tick behavior as well as species identification.

That knowledge is used to maximize treatments and minimize the time taken to do it.
