America’s original and most trusted tick and mosquito control franchise
Mosquito Squad was born out of necessity over 10 years ago when our founders, Boyd Huneycutt and Scott Zide, defined 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.
In 2009, the Squad started with just 15 locations. Since that date, we’ve grown to over 200 locations and more than $50 million in sales. In 2018, Mosquito Squad was acquired by Authority Brands.
Our mission is to help homeowners enjoy outdoor living by delivering a pest-free and disease-free environment that meets their family and lifestyle needs, and our culture can be summed up in four words: passion, service, education, and giving.
Our franchisees, their teams, and the Outdoor Living Brands support team are passionate about providing clients with fun and pest-free outdoor living experiences.
Service from The Squad is unlike any other mosquito control franchise. From the first call to years of protection, we strive to deliver extraordinary service.
We educate today’s homeowners on how to avoid mosquito bites using our 7Ts message. Our easy to remember tools have been show-cased in hundreds of local media interviews with our franchisees.
While mosquito bites are a nuisance here for us in the United States, we are acutely aware that for many people, mosquito bites are deadly. For over 6 years Mosquito Squad has partnered with Malaria No More by raising funds to educate mothers and children as well as provide them with life-saving tests, treatments and protective bed nets.
Having a whole network of family of other people in business that are other franchisees and also having the great network of people at home base is huge to the business
The support has been great... support from other franchisees was awesome. They put me in touch with some of the more seasoned franchisees and they were very welcoming and allowed me to come visit them. I would say the support has been outstanding.
We love the idea of being our own bosses and growing a business that would give back to our community and allow us the flexibility to be with our young children
