Welcome to Mosquito Shield of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Mosquito Shield is setting the industry standard for mosquito and tick control by utilizing a proprietary blend of natural oils, select control products and a flexible spraying schedule that maximizes effectiveness. The company was founded in 2001 in direct response to the absence of an effective and affordable mosquito barrier spray. The company developed a patent pending barrier spray that when started in the early spring would last for weeks and grow in strength as the season progressed.
The Southeastern Pennsylvania franchise was established in 2013 with Tina and Rick Brogan taking the helm and bringing this innovative mosquito and tick control solution to the region. “The dense population as well as Southeastern Pennsylvania’s topography, with its rolling hills and lowlands make it an area filled with Mosquito hotspots,” said Tina Brogan. “Moreover, more warm weather has meant longer breeding seasons for insects, among others recently bringing the Asian Tiger Mosquito to Southeastern Pa. The prevalence of ticks has also been affected, never more than in our own backyard- in 2013 Pennsylvania reported nearly 5,000 cases of Lyme disease, more than any state in the country, and a recent April 2015 DEP study revealed the Lyme risk for the first time in all 67 counties of Pa.
The Brogans, both natives of the region, were on a quest to find a service related business where they could utilize their experience and make a difference in their community. They bring a wealth of sales, management, marketing and entrepreneurial experience to their franchise. Both have developed, launched, and nurtured businesses at varying levels. “It’s really a lifestyle thing,” said Brogan, “we echo the sentiments of so many of our customers who’ve said we’ve changed their lives. As homeowners ourselves who enjoy entertaining frequently on our back deck in the summer months, the value of living mosquito and tick free without having to use repellents was clear,” said Brogan. “Add to that the growing concern with West Nile and Triple E virus and Lyme disease, and we became very enthusiastic about providing a valuable needed service to our region.”
