Mosquito Shield was founded in September of 2001 in response to the absence of an effective residential mosquito control service and the inadequacy of control products such as body sprays, candles and mosquito magnets. Now, over 1 million treatments and 50 franchise locations later, Mosquito Shield’s proprietary control products and specialized spray techniques keep tens of thousands of American homes mosquito and tick-free every year.
Residential mosquito and tick control services are now part of a structural pest control industry that generated an estimated $9.359 billion in total service revenue in the United States in 2019, up from $8.971 billion in 2018 (source). With the threat of mosquito and tick-borne illnesses on the rise in the United States, the residential mosquito control market has become the fastest-growing pest control segment, with service revenue from residential barrier treatments increasing at a compound annual growth rate in excess of 22% since 2017.
