Our Story

About Mosquito Shield of Richmond

Hi, we’re Connor and Dana King and we’re the owners of Mosquito Shield of Richmond. 

We’re a small, locally owned, family business that will go above and beyond to ensure our customers have a wonderful experience with us.

We’re Not Just Mosquito Shield Owners

Connor started his career as an engineer before attending business school and most recently worked as an investment banker. He has always dreamed of owning his own business. Dana currently works as a social worker and loves meeting new people, hearing their stories, and helping to solve their problems.

We have lived in Richmond for six years in both The Fan and Forest Hill Neighborhoods. We love being close to the James River and the brewery scene at Scott’s Addition—especially Vasen Brewing!

We spend as much time outside as possible with our two pets. Whether it’s going for long walks or playing fetch with our Golden Retriever, or grilling and dining outside while our cat rolls around in the yard. We value quality time outside with our family while protecting their health and safety.

Together, we provide excellent customer service, meet the Richmond community’s needs for effective mosquito, tick, and pest control services, and enjoy being small business owners.

Our Philosophy

With backgrounds in business and social work, we pride ourselves on both running an effective and efficient business while prioritizing our customers’ satisfaction. We feel lucky to have lived in Richmond for the past five years and are excited to continue to support and grow with our community.

We love that we can confidently treat not only our customers’ yards, but our own. It’s important to reduce mosquitoes, ticks and other pests for both our furry friends and humans alike. At Mosquito Shield of Richmond, we have just the team for the job.

Our entire team, from technicians to owners, is certified by the Commonwealth of Virginia to ensure we follow all required safety, quality, and technical procedures when servicing our customers.

As business owners, we love that our customers come back season after season, and every new customer and positive review is celebrated by our team. There’s no job too big for us to handle, or too small for us to take on.

Our Mission At Mosquito Shield of Richmond

At Mosquito Shield of Richmond, Virginia, our goal is to provide the best services in Richmond, accompanied by the highest levels of customer service. 

We offer: mosquito control, tick control, perimeter pest control, and one-time spray event services. All to allow our customers to enjoy their yards, homes, and time with family however they please. 

As small business owners, we want our customers to know that we care about their experience with us. Every time you interact with us, our goal is to be professional, courteous, prompt, and focused on solving the problem at hand. We’re passionate about making your time outdoors with loved ones as enjoyable as possible.

The customer experience is one of the many things that attracted us to the Mosquito Shield brand. As a company, they expect nothing less than a relentless push for high-quality customer service. 

They don’t charge customers on a per-spray basis, they have a money-back guarantee, and their driving mission is to have satisfied, mosquito- and tick-free customers. It aligned perfectly with our personal core beliefs on customer service and overall product satisfaction.

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.

What Makes Mosquito Shield Better?

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.

Mosquito Proprietary Blend

Mosquito Proprietary Blend


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.

Environmentally Smart Practices

Environmentally Smart Practices


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.

You can’t put a price on peace of mind and relaxation. With our service, you can relax knowing that we are helping protect your pets, kids, friends and loved ones outside. We kill and repel mosquitoes, ticks, and therefore help keep away the diseases that come with them.


We want to help you enjoy your yard again by delivering a mosquito-free environment that allows you to spend more time outdoors.


From start to finish, you’ll see we’re passionate about what we do. We don’t make you sign contracts or upsell you on services that you do not need. Our service application is tailored to your property and includes our proven mosquito proprietary blend technology. We’re here to help you and control mosquitoes, not the other way around.

New Mosquito Shield Technology

State-of-the-art routing software enables our Mosquito Shield of Richmond Technicians to deliver on flexible treatment schedules. We are able to map out ahead of time when treatments will be needed. This information is relayed to you to better serve and communicate the timing and details of each application.

While our sprayer equipment may look similar to others, it too has been engineered for maximum effectiveness. With it, we can apply our products more efficiently and with greater accuracy and control.

Expert Technicians

Expert Technicians

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.
