Residential Mosquito Control Franchise Experiencing Rapid Growth during COVID Pandemic.
Broken Arrow, OK: Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporation, a leading residential mosquito and tick control service with over 80 locations across the United States, is expanding its presence in Oklahoma with the launch of Mosquito Shield of Broken Arrow.
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 19 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. Broken Arrow is an obvious area to focus on given its population and the desire of residents to get outdoors and take advantage of the area’s milder seasons combined with warmer summer months.”
The Broken Arrow location is owned by Joseph Seila and will service a large territory that includes the eastern suburbs of Tulsa plus the communities of Broken Arrow, New Tulsa, Glenpool, Inola and more.
Seila is a longtime resident of Oklahoma saying, “I grew up in Inola, OK which is about 20 minutes NE of Tulsa. After college, I lived in Oklahoma City and worked at Devon Energy for nine years as a Data Manager. I then moved to Texas for a couple of years before coming back to my roots in Inola in 2018 to be closer to family. After working as an independent contractor for a few years and becoming an entrepreneur with my own start up company I decided I did not want to go back to corporate life, and I’m confident Mosquito Shield will be a perfect opportunity for me. I am looking forward to serving this fantastic community and helping families make the most of their outdoor spaces.”
Founded in 2001, Mosquito Shield is America’s leading residential mosquito and tick control service.
