Hi, my name is Joseph Bosco and I’m the owner of Mosquito Shield of Lake Houston.
At Mosquito Shield of Lake Houston, Texas, new customers get their first month of treatment for free. Our goal is to provide the best mosquito control service with the highest levels of customer service, allowing our customers to enjoy their homes and time with family to the fullest.
In 2015, I moved to Katy to pursue work in Houston’s oil and gas industry. As a major part of this, I worked with people from around the world, selling software to oil and gas customers. I enjoy small town living but appreciate the close proximity to one of America’s largest cities. My wife, Deanna, works in “Old Katy” serving local and international families.
Outside of work, we spend our time together as a family. We vacation in Galveston for the sprawling beaches, park festivals, and carnival rides. We absolutely love critiquing barbecue in different restaurants. And, we stay healthy as a family by walking and riding bikes in the north and west suburbs of Houston.
Some fun facts about our family: we like watching “Naked and Afraid” on television and we playfully suggest that we can do it, until there’s an episode where the contestants are being eaten alive by bugs—then we’re out!
I started my mosquito control business because I love the outdoors. I, much like many others, have had nice days ruined by mosquitoes stinging myself and guests. I wanted to help prevent that from happening to people.
Especially in the Lake Houston area, effective mosquito control is essential. By early March, we notice inch-long bodied mosquitoes. That’s something I’m excited to provide relief from for our community.
At Mosquito Shield of Lake Houston, we don’t just service customers’ yards on a fixed schedule with an off-the-shelf product. Mosquito Shield has spent over 20 years developing a unique formula that’s not available anywhere else.
It not only kills mosquitoes, but also masks the smells they are attracted to and adds a scent that irritates them and repels them away. Then, they time the application to match the breeding cycle of the mosquitoes so it can be most effective.
To demonstrate my love of the outdoors, I should mention that as a kid I was in the Boy Scouts and at one point camped out at least 2 nights a month for over 2 years. I lived in Connecticut at that time so several of those nights the temperature was below zero. I was also a Cubmaster for a few years while my son was in the scouts.
In 2020, as motivation to exercise more, I started participating in Triathlons. Now, I’m preparing for my first ½ Ironman Triathlon. Because of this I get to spend even more time outdoors. However, I often come home from training with an absurd number of bites. It’s no mystery how I became the biggest advocate for mosquito control services.
My education has helped me to be able to understand how Mosquito Shield products and tools work. Leveraging my Mechanical Engineering degree from Purdue University, I have a very firm understanding of how this product works so well. I also have an MBA to help me get through the business side of the company.
I have been involved in the customer service side of business my entire career. I started working before I was 16, doing jobs like carrying golf clubs and delivering newspapers. In my very early jobs, I only got paid if I did a good job and received tips.
Once 16, I worked as a lifeguard and swimming instructor. A highly visible position that required the job to be done properly every time.
All my jobs since then have been as a commissioned salesperson. During that time, I won many awards and sold more products than I was assigned to. This success came from always doing my best to understand what my customers wanted and sell them a product that satisfies their needs.
I want my company to be known as the best mosquito control service provider in Houston. The one with the best employees, the best results, and the best value. I want my employees to be proud of where they work and know that their employer cares about their wellbeing as well.
As the supplier of your mosquito control services it is my goal to provide you with the best possible use of your outdoor areas. I and my team of technicians will strive to understand the nuances of your property and develop the proper treatment plan to eliminate mosquitoes.
The sales that I am most proud of are the ones that afterwards the customer told me how they were able to use the products I sold them to improve their life or that of someone else.
Our mosquito control services come with a customer satisfaction guarantee. If you are not satisfied, we will reservice your property at no charge, and if you are still not satisfied we will refund your money.

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.

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.
We’re the only company in the industry that reacts to mosquito behavior. Without a set schedule, we can adapt to your yard's needs and the mosquitoes around it.
On average, we visit every 10-17 days to ensure a mosquito-free lifestyle.
Our special blend began 20 years ago and we continually evolve it to maximize effectiveness.
Science created our formula, and science continues to adapt it so it remains the most effective spray in the game.
All of our technicians are trained in environmentally smart practices. They target active mosquito areas and are taught the signs to recognize them.
This means less overall spraying, more dead mosquitoes, and a healthy ecosystem in your backyard.
If you’re not happy with our services, let us know. We’ll work hard to make it right, including offering a service call spray if needed.
If you’re unhappy with the results after your first visit, simply notify us within 7 days and we will issue you a full refund.
Our technicians are trained specifically on mosquito and tick control products. We’re not just another guy with a backpack and van or a lawn care provider that will “set and forget” later. This is what we do and we take it very seriously. Not only are our technicians trained on products, they’re trained on mosquito and tick behavior as well as species identification.
That knowledge is used to maximize treatments and minimize the time taken to do it.
