  • Why Mosquito Squad Franchise?

    • Multiple Revenue Streams – There are three different revenue opportunities available as a franchise owner: our Barrier Spray Program, Automatic Misting Systems and Special Event Treatments. Each one has a different price point allowing you to appeal to all homeowners and businesses in need of an outdoor pest management solution.

    • Low Initial Investment – Total start-up capital of $37,100 to $54,625, which includes the initial franchise fee for an exclusive territory. For qualified parties, up to half of the franchise fee may be financed.

    • Multiple Solutions for our Clients – There are multiple choices to offer to our clients including both EPA registered pest control solutions and all-natural solutions for our clients seeking an organic or green approach.

    • Experienced Support Staff – As with all Outdoor Living Brands franchise concepts, you can count on unparalleled support from a passionate, highly attentive professional support staff – in all the key disciplines you'll need. Their proven, well-respected track record of lead generation and marketing success brings extensive customer acquisition, sales and support skills, and technical knowledge to new franchise owners. In addition, you'll receive referrals from our sister brands.

    • Residual Income Growth Each Year – A key advantage is the ongoing revenue stream from repeat barrier sprays and the refills of automatic misting systems. This "annuity" dramatically increases revenue and profits once a customer base is established. You provide a valuable service and unbeatable convenience for your customers while assuring yourself a continuing revenue stream.

    • Quick Start-Up – In most cases you can hit the ground running within 30 days.

    • Extensive Marketing Tool Kit – From business cards, brochures, ads and direct mail, Mosquito Squad has created impactful marketing materials to kick your business into high gear. And if a customized communication needs to be created, our in-house marketing team will get the job done.

    • Marketing Knowledge and Franchisor Led Initiatives – Data about customer mindset and demographics and effective marketing tools is part of the system. Exceptional distinctive branding and franchisor led initiatives such as public relations and social media strategies are a key part of the Mosquito Squad offering.

    Chris Grandpre: Are you looking for a business opportunity with incredibly low startup costs? One that takes advantage of not just one but two rapidly growing consumer trends, a business that can generate income year after year from strong repeat business. A Mosquito Squad franchise could be just what you’re looking for.

    Hi, I’m Chris Grandpre, president and CEO of Outdoor Living Brands, the world leader in outdoor focused franchise business opportunities. One of our fastest growing franchise brands is Mosquito Squad. The Mosquito Squad business model succeeds through its incredible simplicity. We focus exclusively on controlling outdoor pests such as mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas.

    As homeowners elect to spend more time outside, outdoor insects are a major problem. Across the United States, actually across the world, people are swatting, itching and generally being forced off their decks, porches, patios, and pools by annoying mosquitoes.

    But these mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance. Unfortunately, the instances of insect-borne diseases are rising around the world, even reaching epidemic levels on some continents. In North America and specifically in the United States, the instances of West Nile virus and deadly encephalitis are significant concerns. Unfortunately, thousands of people are affected every year.

    Tick-borne Lyme disease is even more prevalent with over 27,000 cases reported in recent years. In fact, Lyme disease is now the fastest growing infectious disease in the country. In addition, projections are even more alarming regarding these diseases for the future years. Fortunately, Mosquito Squad targets the insects that chase us inside and spread these dangerous diseases.

    You can start a Mosquito Squad franchise with a comfortably low investment and minimal incremental investment as you grow and expand. Mosquito Squad will provide all the initial training, ongoing operational support, and the high-quality marketing materials you need to rapidly launch your business. Plus, you will enjoy our aggressive lead-generation programs and the support of our topnotch branding and marketing team.

    While single-family homeowners are the heart and soul of our client base, your potential customers also include businesses, restaurants with patio dining, caterers who service outdoor events, outdoor concert venues, amusement parks, and baseball and soccer fields. They’re’ all potential customers. Better yet, these commercial customers often need service at multiple locations, providing you with a tremendous amount of business from a single relationship and sale.

    You will assist your clients to select either our ongoing barrier spray service program, a permanently installed automatic misting system with a regular refill schedule, or a single special event application. Our flexibility makes it easy to close the sale and gives you three different income streams with compelling, recurring revenue opportunities.

    Safety and effectiveness are critically important to us. Our mosquito control treatments utilize only properly registered materials and will teach you how to operate your business safely for you and your clients. In fact, we provide all the necessary training, so your business can be up and running in as little as 30 days. Mosquito Squad is earning rave reviews in the media and generating strong brand awareness and interest from clients for our franchisees.

    So, if you want to be your own boss, if you would enjoy creating and growing a business with ongoing client and referral relationships, if you would enjoy helping families protect their outdoor living spaces from annoying insects and dangerous diseases, then a Mosquito Squad franchise may be exactly what you’re looking for.

    Please visit us online at or give us a call at (1-800) 722-4668. Be sure to ask to talk to a member of our franchise recruiting team. We look forward to hearing from you very soon.
