The History Of Mosquito Squad

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

Mosquito Squad was born out of necessity in 2005 when founders Boyd Huneycutt and Scott Zide found a need. Previously in the outdoor lighting business, their installers were being eaten alive by mosquitoes while working outdoors after twilight. Poised with that dilemma, they created the answer: The Protective Barrier Treatment.

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.
