Mosquito Squad

Description

Mosquito Squad protects families, children and pets from mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and other outdoor pests so they can spend more time outside without the risk of bites and insect borne diseases.

Mosquito Squad uses a very simple, systemized business model to protect clients in one of three ways:

  • a barrier spray application applied every 21-day cycle
  • one-time special event sprays; and 
  • permanently installed automatic misting systems

Its strong recurring revenue stream and margins offer a very attractive business for potential franchisees on a stand-alone basis, as a terrific add-on business to an existing outdoor service company or as a seasonal business opportunity.
