Make your dream of loving what you do a reality by owning your own business. Not only can you improve your quality of life but you can also make outside fun again for your community by becoming a Mosquito Joe franchise partner.

The mosquito control industry is a high growth market, and Mosquito Joe has emerged as an industry leader with strong branding, best-in-class systems, unparalleled Corporate support, and the ability to grow rapidly nationwide. We’ve entered our 7th year in the franchising industry and we’re continuing to grow at a rapid rate.

Mosquito Joe was acquired by top home-service brand franchisor, Neighborly (formerly known as Dywer Group) in August of 2018. Neighborly is the world’s largest parent company of 22 service brands, 19 of which are franchise brands, and nearly 3,700 franchise owners. We use Neighborly’s network and wealth of knowledge and experience to cross-promote with our sister brands.

Mosquito Joe provides a service that makes outside fun again for people in your community by allowing them to enjoy their yards and eliminating the worry of mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Mosquito control is a service that customers are picking up readily and is in very high demand. Mosquito Joe franchise partners enjoy a high quality of life due to having the ability to shut down the business over the winter (depending on your location), and can relax and make time for the things they enjoy during the offseason. The winter months are perfect for local marketing and business development efforts to recruit customers for the next season. Many grassroots marketing efforts, such as home shows, are great for getting the word out about Mosquito Joe.

Start your own home-based business with extensive training and support from an experienced, hands on Corporate Team, with a track record in building highly successful national brands that are now “household names.” Mosquito Joe offers a tremendous opportunity for those looking to build a successful and lasting business as a recognized leader in the booming 11-billion-dollar pest control industry.

“Mosquito Joe provides a service that many households need but don’t know is available. It appeared to me to be a market that would have tremendous growth potential and after such a short amount of time in the business, I am more convinced of that then when I purchased the franchise.”Tim Lanai, Mosquito Joe Franchise Owner- Southwest Nashville  

“We have been plagued by mosquitoes in our area, so we know first-hand what a nuisance they can be and how they can hinder outdoor activities. We felt that being able to have a business opportunity that provides a real practical service to homeowners was a great opportunity. Mosquito Joe was also something that the whole family could be engaged in, and something that can be done while maintaining our current work and school responsibilities.” - Scott Franasiak, Mosquito Joe Franchise Owner- Greater Buffalo Region
