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
Mosquito Shield was founded in 2001 as a direct response to the lack of effective residential mosquito control. Body sprays, candles and “mosquito magnets” just weren’t cutting it, so Mosquito Shield developed a real solution.
Since founding the company, we have researched the science behind mosquito life cycles, tested various products and application measures and determined the optimal visit frequency. Our natural barrier spray lasts for weeks and grows in strength as the season progresses. When you purchase seasonal protection for your property, you’ll enjoy ongoing applications approximately every two weeks, depending on the weather.
Entrepreneur Theron Horn is the president of Mosquito Shield – Northwest Metro Minnesota and Alexander Horn is the vice president and operations manager. Both have significant business experience, excel in customer satisfaction and, as native Minnesotans, understand just how bad our mosquitoes can really get!
Alexander spends a lot of time in the great outdoors and enjoys fishing, hunting, camping, bonfires and neighborhood parties. After dealing with insect bites on his daughter and costly tick treatments for his two dogs, he became involved with Mosquito Shield – he knew there had to be a better way to get rid of mosquitoes and ticks and he has found it!
Theron has more than 30 years of business experience and has enjoyed the outdoors for even longer. His fondest memories are of the hours spent with his father in the woods or on a boat. He adores his time in Minnesota, where the waters teem with fish and game is abundant, but those memories are clouded by voracious mosquitoes!
This father/son team is committed to helping families spend time enjoying their backyards again.
