Hi, we’re Dustin and Jennifer Schouten and we’re the owners of Mosquito Shield of North Salt Lake City. We love that we are a customer service company. Putting the customer first and letting them know how important they are is something that sold us on Mosquito Shield. We know how good it feels to be treated well and we want to give that back to the community.
Our goal, as owners, is to educate the people in our community about our company and what Mosquito Shield can do for them. Our area is a haven for mosquitoes. Many homes have been built on reclaimed marshlands, and we can provide a service that allows people to enjoy their yards again. With Mosquito Shield, we also aim to spend more time doing things we want to do as a family and to create something that we can hopefully pass down to our next generation.
Dustin and I were first attracted to Mosquito Shield due to its seasonality. We have young children and like the idea of knowing that we’ll never have to request time off to be together as a family during winter holidays. My son and I, Joe, are also extremely desirable to Utah’s mosquitoes. Our son is so miserable when he tries to play outside, so we know we can help other people like him to enjoy a pest-free outdoor experience. I grew up in Katy, Texas and am a graduate of Texas A&M University. Since marrying Dustin, we’ve lived and traveled throughout the country and world, but we’re excited to be back in Dustin’s hometown where we can see the mountains everyday. Dustin was born in Salt Lake City, but moved often when he was young. He does, however, have a lot of family ties in the great state of Utah. In fact, he has a relative that is the former mayor of Ogden!
Dustin retired from the US Navy in 2018 and after working for a few different companies decided he would like to work for himself and his family. We’re proud to be a veteran-owned business and we’re excited to start Mosquito Shield of North Salt Lake City and set down roots for our children.
Here in Salt Lake, we love J. Wong Thai and China Bistro in the downtown Salt Lake City area. Dustin’s dad has been going there for years and strongly recommended that we check it out when we moved to Utah. We love supporting a family-owned business like them and the food is beyond amazing. Dustin gets his favorite Kung Pao Chicken, I can choose from a variety of Thai or Chinese dishes, and the kids are delighted by the robots that bring the food to the tables. Every weekend we visit a different park as we enjoy spending time outdoors with our kids and our new best friend, Namaste, a Dutch Shepherd. Nami is learning how to track and has been taking service dog classes.
The leadership experience and dedication to service Dustin gained from his time in the Navy translates well into running a business that gives back to the community at large. We’re very customer-oriented and set on 100% satisfaction for each customer. Our satisfaction guarantee comes with a money-back promise. Within 7 days of spraying, if you’re not satisfied, we will do a respray. After that, if you’re still not noticing a difference, we’ll 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.
