Why Mosquito Shield?
All mosquito control service is not the same!
Mosquito Shield provides the best value in mosquito control services because of how we treat your yard using The Mosquito Shield Tailored Treatment System™. We don’t use a fixed schedule, identical product, “one size fits all” service program.
You can’t control mosquitoes on a set number of sprays or visits. Unlike our competition, we service you for the season, whatever it takes to provide superior results. This promise has awarded us an industry-leading customer retention rating of 90%.
We actively monitor both mosquito population and weather conditions and adjust your treatments as needed. On average, we spray every 10-17 days, a proven and effective approach that has us spraying 4-6 more times than the industry average.

Our Guaranteed Protection Plan kills mosquitoes and begins the critical process of establishing a protective barrier on your property. Our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend™ is applied around all active areas such as decks, patios, pools, swing sets, etc. We actively monitor mosquito populations and weather patterns and return to your property approximately every two weeks. Our proprietary Rain Shield™ is added for improved protection during wet weather conditions which allows the barrier to remain in effect. The protective barrier (assuming no applications are skipped), gets stronger as the season progresses.
Our Flea & Tick program is based on the same tireless work and effective science behind our mosquito control protection plan. This intensive Flea & Tick program was developed specifically to eliminate them within your property. In a process similar to that described for Mosquito Shield, our flea and tick formula is applied to all turf, wood lines, and landscape beds around your property to effectively kill fleas & ticks within those areas.
Our one-time treatment is the perfect way to protect your special event. Ideal for weddings, graduations or family gatherings, we will work with you to make sure it is a great event. Simply schedule your spray at least one week prior and Mosquito Shield will handle the rest. It is exactly what you need to keep the fun in and the bugs out.
How Mosquito Shield Works
Meet The Franchise
At Mosquito Shield of Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan, 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.
My name is Russ Plummer and I was born and raised in Wyoming, but have worked in this area for over 30 years. Grand Rapids is known as Beer City USA, and Holland, Grand Haven and Muskegon lakeshore areas have some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. It is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family.
I worked as a diesel mechanic for over 16 years for Star Truck Rentals. I worked my way up in the Company and became shift lead man for the last 10 years and union representative for the last 3 years of my time with the Company. My wife and I decided that one of us should be home more, so I chose to become a full-time “stay at home” dad when my oldest daughter was 7. A year later we adopted our youngest daughter who is now 17. In addition to being a “stay at home” dad, I worked at my daughter’s elementary school during lunch hours and was President of Hudsonville Little League until 2006 and on the Board of Georgetown Little League from 2006 to present. I have coached girls’ softball for the past twenty seasons, even after my daughters stopped playing because I love coaching to help the kids learn the game and have fun at the same time. A successful season to me was less about wins and more about each girls’ development and having fun.
As a mechanic, I was always interacting with the customers/truck drivers to service and repair their trucks, many times in emergency situations, to get them back on the road. At school or on the softball diamond, listening to the kids, encouraging and teaching them new skills and building their confidence while having fun. I look forward to learning the business from ground up, meeting and getting to know the customers, and providing our customers with excellent service and the Mosquito Shield product to enjoy their outdoor living space during the beautiful summer months in Michigan.
I have been a customer of Mosquito Shield of West Michigan for five years. Mosquitos love my youngest daughter, to where she would have large welts on her body from mosquito bites. After using Mosquito Shield of West Michigan to treat our yard and pool area, we saw a significant decrease in the number of mosquitos in our yard. When I found out this business was available, it didn’t take me very long to consider the opportunity because my family believes in the product and service provided by Mosquito Shield.
We are committed to meeting and exceeding customers’ expectations and becoming the most trusted and recognized solution for mosquito and tick control in the area. We look forward to hearing from you!
