Mosquito Joe Franchising & the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program
Becoming a part of the Mosquito Joe family means more than joining a franchise, it means being a part of a network of individuals who not only seek to make outside fun again for their customers, but who truly desire to make a positive impact in their local community.
Mosquito Joe was recently admitted into the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Through this partnership our goal is to provide low-risk pest management, to ensure customers can enjoy their outdoor spaces without the hassle of mosquitoes, ticks and fleas and with the peace of mind that Mosquito Joe is taking every precaution necessary when handling, applying and disposing our products.
Created by the Office of Pesticide Programs Environmental Stewardship Branch (ESB) in 1994, the PESP program seeks to increase the education of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and reduce the amount of health and environmental risk associated with using pesticides in areas that people live, work, play and farm.
What This Means For Customers
Mosquito Joe’s partnership with PESP demonstrates our commitment to providing low-risk outdoor pest control for residential and commercial properties. As part of a small number of pest control companies and organizations with a membership, we are dedicated to educating our customers on the importance and impact of integrated pest management.
Integrated Pest Management Approach
According to the EPA, an Integrated Pest Management approach is “An effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life-cycle of pests, and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property and the environment.”
What This Means For You
From our branding, level of support, and expertise, Mosquito Joe continues to stand out among our competitors. Our network of franchisees are able to not only fulfill their dreams of business ownership, but to do so with a company they can truly be proud of. As a member of the PESP, Mosquito Joe’s goals are to educate our customers on the importance of outdoor pest control and the appropriate preventative actions they can take to protect their loved ones.
We are honored to be affiliated with an elite partnership that is committed to providing environmentally conscious service and educating consumers. For more information on the PESP partnership, please visit the EPA website here.
