About Mosquito Squad

Trusted & Proven Mosquito Control Since 2005

Mosquito Squad started in 2005 after our founders realized there was a better way to help people escape the itchy bites and diseases associated with mosquitoes. We revolutionized the industry with our Protective Barrier Treatment, a method that keeps mosquitoes, ticks, and other bugs out of yards for up to 21 days. Over the years, our work has been trusted millions of times in the United States and other companies have tried to copy our method countless times. However, there’s still only one original Squad!

What Makes Mosquito Squad Different?

At Mosquito Squad, we work with our franchises to make sure they’re always ready to provide the high level of service that customers have come to expect from us. We focus on four important things to make ourselves truly stand out from the competition: passion, service, education, and giving.

  • Passion

    Our franchisees, their teams, and the Mosquito Squad support team are passionate about providing clients with fun outdoor living experiences – without the pests.

  • Service

    Service from The Squad is unlike any other mosquito control franchise. From the first call to years of protection, we strive to deliver extraordinary service.

  • Education

    We educate today’s homeowners on how to avoid mosquito bites using our 7Ts message. Our easy-to-remember tools have been utilized by hundreds of local media interviews with our franchisees. Our appearances in local media mean that many of our locations have become trusted sources of mosquito control in their communities.

  • Giving

    While mosquito bites are a nuisance here for us in the United States, they’re a deadly problem for others around the world. We want to change this. For years, Mosquito Squad has partnered with Malaria No More by raising funds to educate mothers and children as well as provide them with life-saving tests, treatments, and protective bed nets.

Who Is Dread Skeeter?

The Man Behind The Brand

Our company mascot, Dread Skeeter, has earned recognition across the nation. As our brand icon, Dread Skeeter is a great representation of our mosquito tick and control experts. He’s been a member of The Squad since our earliest days and is a core part of our identity!

Dread is on a mission to allow families to take back their yards and help protect them from bugs and biting insects that are not only annoying but can transmit dangerous diseases like West Nile virus, Zika virus, Lyme disease, dengue fever and more.

Over the years, Dread has earned instant recognition for the Mosquito Squad brand and makes our mosquito control franchise fun and approachable. From direct mail and websites to truck wraps, emails and yard signs, Dread is a key component to the brand’s marketing materials. We even have mascot-quality costumes so you may notice him at summer festivals, home shows, and local parades.

Benefits of Joining
the Squad

Our status as the nation’s market leader for mosquito control isn’t the only reason to open your own Mosquito Squad location. We offer the support, tools, and business model that our locations need to flourish and grow.

  • Recurring Revenue Streams

    Imagine starting each year of business with a base of existing clients ready to have your service again! That’s what you get with The Squad. Each year, our Mosquito Squad locations go through a renewal process with existing clients, providing the clients with the peace of mind that their mosquito and tick control needs are automatically taken care of, and providing you with reliable cash flow.

  • Growing, In-Demand Industry

    While the nation’s economy can be unpredictable, the need to keep mosquitoes under control isn’t. Our locations have weathered some of the most difficult economic hardships thanks to the essential services that they provide to their community.

  • A Low Cost of Entry

    Opening a Mosquito Squad location, which can be home-based, often requires a lower investment than franchises that require brick-and-mortar locations. Our low estimated investment has resulted in Entrepreneur Magazine to rank us a Top Low Cost Investment in 2020!
