Franchise Overview

Mosquito Joe is a pest control business with the mission to make “outside fun again.” The company provides services on a 21-day cycle to homeowners and the product removes mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and many other types of biting insects. The treatment effectively creates a “barrier” around the homeowner’s property and allows them the opportunity to enjoy their yards without the fear of getting bit. The customers love the service as evidenced by the very high customer retention rate of 79%. Although mosquitoes have been around for a long time, the industry we compete in is relatively new over the last several years.



Mosquito Joe is a seasonal business you can operate from virtually any home or office, has low startup costs and is a great standalone business or a wonderful complement to other businesses.

No experience is needed, only passionate, customer service-oriented individuals who are interested in working for themselves while providing a much-needed service and being active in their community. Our technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to deliver EPA-registered solutions to outdoor spaces. No crawling under houses or wrestling with difficult systems. Sometimes, it’s literally a walk in the park.

Mosquito Joe offers a turnkey business plan that includes training and full operational support with best-in-class systems. Our software makes customer recruitment, scheduling and accounting easy for our franchisees. With the most recognizable brand name and the brightest colors in the industry, coupled with fun and catchy slogans like, “Haven’t seen you outside in a while” and “Because a yard is a terrible thing to waste,” Mosquito Joe will soon become a household name across the country.

While still being a young company only in its sixth year of franchising, it is still a ground floor opportunity allowing your candidates to participate in an emerging, high-growth market while experiencing widespread acceptance as a service homeowners and businesses value and desire. Over time, this service will be as common as having your yard cut.

Mosquito Joe provides the independence of running your own business with a strong foundation of guidance and support from an established Corporate office. The team has over 263 years of combined franchise experience stemming from multiple franchise brands, including five of the top ten fastest-growing franchises in the nation.

What is the role of a franchisee?

The Mosquito Joe model works for owner-operator, semi-absentee owner and investors alike. Some owners fill the Designated Manager role to include Scheduling, Managing Techs, Sales and Customer Service. Others delegate those responsibilities to someone else while they serve as the Technician. Typical week is Monday through Friday, daylight hours, with Saturday as rain back-up day. Sunday is almost never a workday. Few employees are needed to run the business and often done with other full time employees seeking extra hours (example: EMTs, firemen, etc.).
