Getting Customers Back Outside:

“I am BEYOND impressed with Mosquito Joe. I am a mosquito magnet and also trying to start a family so it’s super important for me to not get bitten, but I LOVE being outside. This is the first year EVER that I’ve been able to enjoy being outside without being smothered in bug spray from head to toe. Furthermore, it’s rained so much in Franklin lately that even if the spray does not dry before it rains, Mosquito Joe has been more than willing to come out and do a booster spray once I did get bitten. In short – y’all are AWESOME! If anyone is on the fence about getting their yards sprayed, take the plunge – you will NOT regret it!!!!!”

“It is amazing how I now enjoy my backyard more than I ever have. I no longer have to spray repellant on myself and forge through working in my backyard. My friends would often come over and leave early when the mosquitos came out but now they look forward to coming over and staying late…”

“This is a great service and the people are awesome; I look forward to many mosquito-free years of enjoying my backyard.”


Standing Out Against our Competition:

 “OMGoodness!!!!!!  We tried two other pest control companies regarding our mosquito issue.  Anytime we were in the backyard or on our wonderful, newly redone deck was a walking human buffet for all mosquitoes, my hubby would get one or two bites, and our four sons would average 10-15 bites. After two applications by Mosquito Joe, I am thrilled to report that we are sitting at and eating on the deck. I’m picking tomatoes from my plants, AND able to work on my flower bed without a SINGLE mosquito bite. (This is NOT a paid endorsement. I’m just a customer North of the River who was able to get outside without getting gnawed on!!!)”


Exceeding Expectations with Customer Service:

“Love Mosquito Joe!! Great customer service. Promised me if I saw mosquitoes after application, they would come out and re-spray. But guess what, no and I mean no mosquitoes, none 10 minutes after application. I have never been able to enjoy my backyard after 4 pm. And now, I can go swimming at night, play with my dog outside after 4:00 or even earlier. I’m in a heavy wooded area, so couldn’t believe it would work. Omg!!! When technician came to my house, with a big smile, introducing himself, and promising if I had any problems, to call and he would be right out to re-spray. Kudos for a great employee. Just came out for 2nd Application, 3 weeks after first, same great smile and service.”

 “From scheduling to service, the process was easy. I can now enjoy my yard again. I recommend that everyone enjoy their yards again, and this is a simple way to do just that.  Thank you to all the Joes.”

Strike Gold with Mosquito Joe in Colorado!

Why is Mosquito Joe a great franchise opportunity?

With beautiful mountainous scenery and 300 days of sunshine a year, Colorado is one the most picturesque areas in the United States. While goldmining used to be the big draw for visitors to Colorado, it is now outdoor experiences. From white-water rafting, zip-lining, and hiking this state is always buzzing with activity. The capitol itself is brimming with outdoor attractions; Denver, C.O. has the largest city park system in the U.S. with 205 parks. Colorado is making outside fun again, and so are we. The “Centennial State” is a great place for a Mosquito Joe franchise.

If you’re looking for a franchise opportunity in Colorado and need some additional convincing to join the Mosquito Joe family, we’ve got you covered! Check out these reasons why Colorado is a great market for the mosquito control industry:

  • The seasonality of our business is perfect for people who are looking for time off throughout the year to focus on other work or for free time. A short season also means that residents will take advantage of the warm weather by spending the summer months outdoors in their yards. This guarantees the need for mosquito control.
  • Citizens in areas like Colorado Springs and Denver are ideal Mosquito Joe customers: single family homeowners, parents, pet-owners, and outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Colorado’s vibrant outdoor culture allows residents to spend their free time outside. You can help them do that itch-free! There are also a lot of outdoor-oriented businesses in need of mosquito control services to prevent their customers from getting bitten.
  • With Air Force bases in Aurora and Denver, we know that Colorado holds their servicemen and women in high regard. To show our commitment to our heroes, we offer a special discount for veterans looking to open a franchise.
  • Mosquito Joe is one of the fastest growing franchises in the industry because of the recurring revenue model and expansion across the country. It is also one of the lowest priced franchises in the outdoor services industry.
  • You will be a member of a franchise that exceeds industry averages. Mosquito Joe is known for high satisfaction rates. Nothing feels better than knowing that you’re making a difference and that your customers are happy with the work you’ve done.

So, what’s in it for you?

  • You will finally know what it feels like to become a trusted partner of a business. You get to better the community, heighten summer fun, and help make outside fun again.
  • You will have the privilege of working outside and serving the community instead of being stuck behind a desk during the summer.
  • Join a team of good-natured people and a feel-good environment. We like to have fun and make people smile here at Mosquito Joe.
  • Low investment means limited staff and no necessary storefront. You can run your business out of your home like many franchisees do.
  • Our team of experts at corporate provides constant support and training in marketing, customer service, operations and finance. In other words, prior experience is not required! We will teach you everything you need to know to be successful.

Pest Control Industry Update

At Mosquito Joe, we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of our field. This has allowed us to expand our brand and grow as a company. Here are some of the exciting things happening in our industry that have contributed to our success!

Growth Possibilities

The pest control industry has experienced a high growth rate recently and is anticipating even more in the months to come! Currently, the industry is expected to see 2.6% in growth from $13.4 billion to $15.3 billion by 2022. This is due to the rising amount of consumer awareness about the potential health risks of mosquitoes and other pesky pests. Here at Mosquito Joe, we’re invested in educating consumers on the importance of mosquito control and the steps they can take to prevent insect-borne diseases.

Recurring Revenue

One of the major advantages of the pest control industry is that it functions on a recurring revenue model. According to current statistics, the number of recurring customers is growing rapidly. Because Mosquito Joe markets our services as something that works best when done on a regular basis, this encourages customers to schedule their services in advance, which can ensure guaranteed revenue. Customers can also utilize pre-pay options which can ensure cash flow on the front end and guarantee income during the off-season for many seasonal business owners. These funds can be allocated toward marketing efforts or business expenses. Both options are great for franchisees.

Long-Term Customers

Pests are viewed by most homeowners as a nuisance, resulting in the willingness to do what is necessary to get the problem under control. After experiencing the benefits of the service, customers are likely to return for multiple seasons.

While pest control is typically seen as a residential service, a new kind of customer is creating the bulk of the growth in new customer acquisition. Commercial accounts and pest control, especially those in the food and hospitality industry, have always gone hand-in-hand because of federal regulations and local food safety guidelines.

MoJo Differentiators

There are a number of reasons to join the pest control industry, but there are even more reasons to join the Mosquito Joe team. Mosquito Joe has been recognized as #1 in category for Best of the Best Franchises and one the Fastest-Growing Franchises by Entrepreneur for multiple years. We promote a family and locally-owned business model whose top priority is making outside fun again for our communities.

Owners of Mosquito Joe of Northwest Houston

Kate Gould – Mosquito Joe of Northwest Houston & S. Brazos Valley

Opened 2015

The pros to owning my own business are that I don’t have to worry about early morning daycare while I grapple with rush hour traffic to make it to my office. I am my office. I can work around the kids’ schedule and this allows me the freedom to take them to school, participate in school events, and always be a phone call away if they are sick or need to come home. As we grow in size and have folks in the office managing the day to day calls, I have more freedom to participate in family activities. College and high school graduation happens for two of my kids this month, and I will be able to travel to both ceremonies without taking vacation time away from myself.

As my kids grow older, I am also able to offer them employment in the office. They have the ability to have a summer job that pays them well, where they can learn about what I do and what it takes to run a business. This, for me, is probably the greatest bonus to running my own business. My kids really get a taste of the real world and an understanding of what it takes to be successful. I’m about to watch my eldest graduate with a bachelors in entomology, and she and I often help one another with bug identification or mosquito questions.

The biggest take away for me is that I am doing far more than earning a paycheck. I’m building a business one of them might want one day, and if they don’t, I’m creating a retirement vehicle for myself that will afford me all the time I need when it comes time for grandkids. Building a future for myself and my family is something I can’t put a price on. Showing my kids that you can be a mom, be involved, grow and manage a company is pretty huge. Especially, I think, for my girls. I much prefer proving that you can do anything you set your mind to, rather than just telling my kids they can!


Beth Sehlhorst – Mosquito Joe of East Cincinnati

Opened 2014

Owning my own business means setting an example and letting my kids be involved in the day to day. This gives them an opportunity to celebrate successes and work through challenges with me. Flexibility in my schedule to take care of little ones and working from home is nice too.

Mosquito Joe has positive ethics and moral values and a concept that relates to giving back. The business also allows us to spend time with our family and have more of a work-life balance. Having children of our own, we saw the business opportunity would not only benefit us, but could also help other families.

Owning a franchise with Mosquito Joe provides parents the flexibility to manage their business and to manage their home without missing a step.

We truly appreciate the women of Mosquito Joe for all that they contribute to our company. For more information on how you can join the Mosquito Joe family, click here to learn more.
