The History Of Mosquito Squad

Mosquito Squad is America’s original and most trusted tick and mosquito control franchise.

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!

No one in the industry is even close to our experience. Hundreds of thousands of clients have trusted us to deliver millions of Protective Barrier Treatments. In 2009, the Squad started franchising with just 15 locations. Since that date, we’ve grown to over 200 locations. In 2018, Mosquito Squad was acquired by Authority Brands, a growing portfolio company of premium home services franchises.
