About Mosquito Shield of North Suburban Chicago

Hi, my name’s Bill Murphy and I’m the owner of Mosquito Shield of North Suburban Chicago, Illinois. 

Our goal is to provide the best mosquito and tick control service in the north suburbs of Chicago, IL with the highest levels of customer service, allowing our customers to enjoy their backyards, homes, and time with family to the fullest. 

I was born in Chicago and grew up in the NW suburb of Arlington Heights. Being a lifelong resident myself, I attended high school here at Wheeling High and then attended the University of Illinois. I’m proud to call this place my home.

The reason I started my residential mosquito control company is rooted in my passion for helping others and making a positive impact in my community. I have always had a deep appreciation for the great outdoors and the beauty of nature, but I have also seen firsthand the negative impact that mosquitoes and other flying pests can have on people’s lives.

I remember spending my summers as a child with my family, enjoying the warm weather and spending time outside. However, my cousin had a severe allergy to mosquitoes and every time we went outside, she would spend most of her time indoors to avoid the discomfort and itchiness caused by mosquitoes.

I knew that I wanted to do something to help people like my cousin and to help others in my community. I did my research and found that there are many homeowners who are affected by mosquitoes and other flying pests and that there was a need for professional and effective mosquito control services in the area.

I started my residential mosquito control company with the goal of providing homeowners and their families with a safe and comfortable outdoor environment. I wanted to help people like my aunt enjoy their outdoor spaces without the worry of mosquitoes and other flying pests. 

What I love about Mosquito Shield is the fact that we don’t just set a schedule for when your yard will be sprayed. We take into account the weather conditions of the area and come out to spray once every 10-17 days. 

The weather can do a lot to change how mosquitoes multiply, and by treating yards with this flexible schedule we can provide a better overall service for our customers.

Starting my residential mosquito control company was not only a business decision, but also a personal and heartfelt mission to help others and contribute to the well-being of my community. 

I want to help people to be able to enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about mosquitoes and other flying pests, and to make a positive impact on the health of my community.

We understand the value of differentiating through excellent customer service, consistency of experience, and clear communication. 

We guarantee a “customer-first” mentality that will exceed expectations when you choose our mosquito control services for your yard in the north suburbs of Chicago, IL. 

We back up that claim with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t see an improvement in your yard, call us within 10 days of your first spray and we will refund your season.

Our Story

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.
