Of the company’s recent expansion, Mosquito Shield VP Michael Moorhouse said, “Residential mosquito and tick control is a fast-growing business sector, and as the first company in this space over 20 years ago, we have the foundation to be extremely well-positioned for growth.”
Mosquito Shield spent over a decade refining its formulas and application methods from its Massachusetts headquarters before introducing a franchise model for local entrepreneurs in 2013.
“Our methodical approach to growth has set us up well for the impact of the COVID pandemic,” said Moorhouse, “While many businesses have struggled because of stay-at-home orders, such conditions have created a booming market for our services because people are left to enjoy the outdoors from their own backyards, rather than on vacation or at restaurants or large gatherings. With folks investing more to make their yards leisure-time destinations, the opportunity for Mosquito Shield to expand into new markets has exploded and we are experiencing an active period of growth as a result. The Atlanta area is an obvious area to focus on given its population and the desire of residents to get outdoors and take advantage of the region’s warm, gorgeous weather as much as possible.”
The owners of the new locations are committed to meeting and exceeding customers’ expectations and becoming the most trusted and recognized solution for mosquito and tick control in the area.
Julie and TJ Kissane own the North Atlanta location. They say, “It was important to us to find a business that had a positive impact on the lives of our customers. As new parents, we understand the needs of hard-working families who want to maximize time outdoors with family and friends. We see Mosquito Shield as a way to improve our customers’ daily lives and help them maximize their time with loved ones. Business ownership has always been a dream for us and when we found Mosquito Shield we knew this was the opportunity we had been looking for.”
Mosquito Shield, America’s leading residential mosquito and tick control service, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Mosquito Shield addresses the need for an effective and affordable residential mosquito and tick control service. The company, listed in Franchise Gator’s Top 100 Franchise Opportunities for several years in a row, developed Mosquito Protection Barrier™ (MPB), a patent pending spray that rids properties of the existing mosquito population and builds a barrier around that property for a virtually mosquito-free environment. MPB includes FlexBlend, the industry’s only intelligent spray-blend technology. Mosquito Shield also offers a proprietary tick control service, Tick Shield™, and special event service Event Shield™.
