We have a big family, and we use every inch of our home, including the back yard. Mosquito Squad allows us to do that without the constant bother of mosquitoes.
I worked for a major corporation for 12 years, but in December of 2012, they restructured my department and I was laid off. I spent about six months looking for work and trying to decide what to do with my life, until I heard a talk about franchise ownership. I had never seriously considered owning a franchise, but I suddenly realized that it actually would be a great fit. I had worked in many different departments in my last company and others previously, including management, training, customer service, sales and marketing. Why couldn’t I put these skills to use in a small company? I started attending regular meetings where franchisors would discuss their opportunities, but nothing really grabbed my interest until one day I heard a representative from Mosquito Squad. I was hooked.
Here was an idea I could use at my own home, something I didn’t know existed but had been on the lookout for. Mosquito Squad was the first company to offer this service back in 2005 and they have been on the cutting edge of mosquito control technology and customer service ever since. The methods are well-researched, tried and true and the focus on the customer experience is exactly what I wanted. All I needed was some business acumen and the desire to help others enjoy their yards…and the willingness to work really really hard…and I could make this work!
I bought the North Austin territory in December 2013 and expanded to the West Austin territory in mid-2014. Now we serve everyone from Hutto to the lake, and from south Georgetown to about 35th. Now I think that corporate layoff was the biggest blessing in disguise ever!
Pests don't stand a chance.
Mosquito Squad's most popular mosquito control service, our traditional barrier spray will decrease your yard's mosquito population by 85-90%! Our trained technicians treat key areas of your property, eliminating adult mosquitoes on contact and providing continuous protection, reapplying every 2-3 weeks.
Mosquito Squad's all natural mosquito treatment is made up of essential oils, eliminating adult mosquitoes on contact and working as a repellent for up to 2 weeks. As opposed to our traditional barrier protection, the all natural treatment must be applied every 14 days.
For the most comprehensive tick control, our technicians utilize a combination of our traditional barrier spray and tick tubes. Our barrier spray will eliminate adult ticks on contact while tick tubes are placed in key areas on your property, twice a season, to eliminate ticks at their nymph stage.
Mosquito Squad's mosquito misting system is installed on your property for continuous control, all season long. The system automatically delivers a 30-second spray 2-4 times a day when mosquitoes are known to be at their most active.
From outdoor weddings to backyard barbecues, our special event spray keeps your guests off the menu. Our trained technicians will spray the area before the event, creating an odorless barrier, eliminating mosquitoes.
Satisfied customers: The strongest proof of our performance
Our kids hate getting bug bites when playing outside. But now Mosquito Squad allows our entire family to enjoy more time outdoors.
We had a Mosquito Squad misting system installed last summer and it has made a huge impact on our backyard. Our 11 year old, who was constantly bitten by bugs, now can play all day without one bite. He raves about it to all his friends in the neighborhood. It’s great for families who want to enjoy their outdoor space.
We called Mosquito Squad last summer when our yard became inundated with mosquitoes. Not only has it allowed us to spend more time outdoors without bug bites, but their service has been wonderful. They call us before and after every spray so we don’t have to worry when we are due or if they’ve been there.
