Hi, we’re Janice and Tim Fullmer and we’re the owners of Mosquito Shield of Southern New Jersey.
We were very excited to become the 4th franchisee back in 2013, and in the ensuing years to have played a part in helping shape the brand, processes, techniques, etc.
We also appreciate that our product mix has been tested and tweaked over the years. Maximizing the performance of our blend has allowed us to confidently offer effective mosquito control, tick control, and event control with our Satisfaction Guarantee.
Tim and I had worked corporate jobs, and in early 2013, both of our employers were in a state of flux. One filed for bankruptcy, and the other was closing its local office. We were faced with major employment and location decisions.
Having grown up in his dad’s HVAC business, Tim always had aspirations of owning his own business. So, I asked him if he’d regret not taking this watershed moment in our lives to make that happen.
We went to a Franchise Expo, met Michael Moorhouse of Mosquito Shield, did our due diligence, and quickly made the decision to become only the 4th franchisee in the Mosquito Shield system!
Both of us earned MBAs and we have a combined 56 years of corporate business experience. My prior work experience was in customer service, sales, and team leadership. Tim’s experience was in project management, leadership, and engineering.
Our complementary skill sets allow us to run a successful business.
Because we have so much experience in running a business, we can focus on providing the best possible customer experience, while also ensuring a healthy, pleasant work environment for our technicians and office staff.
We believe in hiring people who will represent Mosquito Shield well to our customer base. This means hiring our technician staff members based on integrity, personality, and reliability—we’ll train them on all the technical aspects of the job.
We instill a strong sense of customer service in each technician. After our training, they have the necessary knowledge and skill to properly apply mosquito and tick control treatments on customer properties. Not only that, but they can speak knowledgeably about what they’re doing.
Alongside our technicians, both of us are very active in this business. We personally hire and train every employee, which ensures that every member of our staff takes personal pride in providing excellent treatments and customer service to our customers.
We celebrate every phone call, email, text or online review that gives a shout out to a particular employee, and recognize employees who go “above and beyond.” This internal emphasis on the quality of our staff translates into an all around excellent customer experience from empowered and recognized employees.
Tim is a “mosquito magnet” – the person in the family who gets bitten by mosquitoes more than anyone else. Once we realized, in 2013, that there was such a thing as residential mosquito control service we knew we had to look into it.
Being able to treat our own property so we can live outside mosquito-free is one big benefit of owning this business. Our own enjoyment of our pool and other outdoor activities with friends and family often used to be cut short by the presence of pesky, biting mosquitoes. Not anymore!
After we started the business in South Jersey, there was an evening back in the summer of 2013 where I was looking all through the house for Tim. Eventually, I found him napping on our outside patio sofa… which he had NEVER been able to do before.
That moment solidified in our minds just what a fabulous benefit our service could be for our fellow South Jersey residents.
From a community health perspective, there are growing concerns about mosquito-borne West Nile and Triple E viruses, and many families in our community have already been impacted by tick-borne Lyme Disease. Mosquito Shield is our way of helping those in need.
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.
