About Mosquito Shield of Eastern Maryland

Hi, my name’s Jamie Raul and I’m the owner of Mosquito Shield of Eastern Maryland.

I’m a 45 year old father of 2 and stepfather of 2. I’m engaged to the love of my life and excited to get married in the fall. I am a very family-oriented person and enjoy being outside with the kids and fiancé playing some kind of sport. 

I grew up on the Eastern Shore. As a child I lived in Grasonville, then moved to Ridgely, and last year I built a new home with my fiance. Maryland Eastern Shore is unique because there is as much, if not more, water than land. It is comprised of small towns surrounded by farms and the Chesapeake Bay.

When I’ve got time to kill, I love being outside around the Chesapeake Bay. You can typically find me on the bay crabbing, fishing, or just going for a ride on a hot summer day. 

When we’re hungry, Cohees 404 is the go to place for my family and I to eat. It’s a small local restaurant that has good food, service, and prices. 

I am a self starter, enjoy challenges, and like to share my knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay and outdoors. For me, a combination of those three led to where I am today, Mosquito Shield. 

I get to use my knowledge of the outdoors to solve mosquito control challenges across Eastern Maryland.  

I started looking into mosquito control because my children and fiance couldn’t be outside without being eaten alive by mosquitoes. I wanted to make our yard more family friendly and accessible for everyone. 

After looking into mosquito control services, I learned that there weren’t many options on the Eastern Shore. So, I began looking into starting my own mosquito control business. 

When I began researching different possibilities, I saw that Mosquito Shield had the best service and product on the market. 

It was proven to work in Maryland already and had a great reputation across the country. I knew it was a product I could trust to effectively eliminate mosquitoes. 

They were dedicated to improving their customers’ outdoor experience.

What are your own (not corporate) Business Mission, Vision, Values, Goals or Passions?

I want to have a successful small business that I can grow while maintaining a good work/life balance. The dream is for one, or all of the kids, to take over and inherit my legacy built at Mosquito Shield.

What Expertise/Qualifications/Credibility do you have as a business owner and Mosquito Shield service provider that would build customer trust in you or your business?

I have experience running a small oyster aquaculture business. I built it from the ground up and have been successful year in and year out. Being on the Eastern Shore, I understand your word means a great deal in business. My past successes have heavily leaned on that very thing.

I have worked my way from the ground up with everything I’ve ever done. Working your way up from the bottom in any business you learn the value of hard work, reliability, and honesty. Those are traits I plan to bring to Mosquito Shield of Eastern Maryland.

Just as with my past businesses, Mosquito Shield of Eastern Maryland will be a trustworthy establishment. I believe in doing what I say I’m going to do and standing by my work. 

I can guarantee I will do my best to make your outdoor experience as enjoyable as possible. I will treat your property just as I would my own.

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.
