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 West Richmond, Virginia, 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.
Owners Connor King and Dana Vandervelde have lived in the Fan in Richmond for four years and are excited to be building their first home in Forest Hill this year. They love being close to the James River and the brewery scene at Scott’s Addition – especially Vasen Brewing! They spend as much time outside as possible with their Golden Retriever puppy, Bailey, whether it’s going for long walks or playing fetch in the grass. They understand the importance of quality time outside, and are excited to work hard to keep our community and customers mosquito-free.
Connor started his career as an engineer before attending business school and most recently worked as an investment banker. He has always dreamed of owning his own business. Dana currently works as a social worker and loves meeting new people, hearing their stories, and helping to solve their problems. Together, Connor and Dana know they can provide excellent customer service, meet the community’s needs, and run an excellent business.
Some favorite local spots are Lunch.SUPPER! with their awesome outdoor patio and delicious southern cuisine. The pickled & fried chicken sandwich is a fan favorite. Being in the Fan, they have enjoyed many Friday nights at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts taking advantage of their amazing happy hour with Bailey and friends in the sculpture garden. Recently, they started spending sunny days at Maymont exploring the grounds and enjoying the beautiful Italian and Japanese Garden.
The owners say, “Our goal is to be the preferred mosquito control business in West Richmond and provide excellent customer service to our neighbors. We look forward to hearing from you!”
