Virginia Beach, VA, January 2013 –Locally based Virginia Beach company Mosquito Joe has been making outdoors fun again for Hampton Roads residents since 2010, using barrier sprays to protect their yards from mosquitoes. Now they are giving you the opportunity to do the same for your area as they recently announced they are offering franchise opportunities locally and nationwide.
Mosquito Joe started as a mosquito control company whose mission was to make outside fun again by freeing resident’s yards of mosquitoes so they could garden, entertain, eat and play without smelly sprays or candles. After seeing the success of the local operation, the company set their sights on expanding outside the Hampton Roads area to offer mosquito-free living to more communities.
This past year the scares of mosquito-borne illness added to the case for a mosquito-free outdoor area. With more West Nile virus cases reported in 2012 than any year since 2003 according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), experts are encouraging the public to start considering preventative measures against these pests. “Given the epidemic of West Nile virus in 2012, people should start thinking seriously about protecting themselves from the dangers of mosquito-borne illness. Outdoor pest control options such as barrier sprays around residential and commercial outdoor areas are a prime example of an effective and much needed defense to make sure you and your family are safer outdoors,” says Dr. Art Leis, Senior Scientist and West Nile virus expert, Methodist Rehabilitation Center, Jackson, MS.
With a newly organized corporate staff with over 60 combined years in franchise experience and an emerging industry that is on track for significant growth, Mosquito Joe hopes to be that protective solution. “With the lowest franchise fee in the industry and the support of a corporate office with expertise in operations, marketing, and customer service it is a business opportunity you really can’t afford to pass up,” says CEO and President Kevin Wilson.
Mosquito Joe franchises are now available in markets across the United States.
