About Mosquito Squad
Entrepreneurs who join the Mosquito Squad team help to make the outdoors fun again for our residential and commercial customers by eliminating pests that may pose a significant health risk. A clear leader in the outdoor pest control industry, our focus at Mosquito Squad is the complete elimination of mosquitoes, ticks, and more, allowing our clients to get back to enjoying their backyard barbecues, pool parties, and family gatherings.
Values & History
Mosquito Squad was founded in 2004 and began franchising one year later on the strong success of our brand. Our mission is to empower our communities to enjoy their backyard spaces year-round by eliminating the pests that so often encroach upon them. Our applications and services don't just cover homeowners, though. You'll find our specialized pest removal teams and products at special events, beaches, apartment complexes, playgrounds, and stadiums as well.
There are three different revenue opportunities available to our franchise owners, including our Barrier Spray Program, Automatic Misting Systems, and Special Event Treatments. This range of services provides a stronger potential for income than other franchise offerings in the pest control market, which accounted for $16 billion in total revenue over the 2019 year. Annual growth averaged 4.3% from 2014 to 2019, posing a significant earning potential for investors.
Purchasing a Mosquito Squad Franchise
Franchise ownership requirements include access to at least $50k in liquid capital and a minimum net worth of $100k. Franchise fees total $40,000, with the expected initial investment total ranging between $70,000 and $200,000. Financing options are available for those who qualify. Additional options and discounts are available for qualified veterans and service members.
Ideal Candidate & Qualifications
A strong desire to run your own business, work outdoors and be your own boss is essential. Strong follow-through skills in implementing necessary marketing campaigns are useful qualities, as well as a willingness to understand and follow a guided sales process. The ability to train and manage sales and installation personnel, along with the skills to network and establish relationships with key referral partners is ideal.
Training & Support
New franchise owners will complete a week-long session at our Mosquito Squad Corporate Headquarters in Richmond, Virginia, where they will get to know the corporate staff and gain a thorough understanding of all aspects of the business through our hands-on training program. Our training session combines classroom time and fieldwork to ensure new franchisees get off to a great start, covering equipment, products, services, customer service, and more. Ongoing support through online materials and tools is always offered, including system-wide conference calls and networking events.
