Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Mosquito Mary's franchise.
Mosquito Mary's was founded by Nick Spencer in 2018. Its core purpose is to provide communities with mosquito and tick control services. This business offers solutions to residential and commercial clients throughout the United States. Their customized barrier solutions are environmentally safe, so the solutions should not harm pets and children.
Mosquito Mary's has certified technicians that run mosquito control techniques and the safe use of their products. Their blend of products may include plant extracts and oils that eliminate, repel, and kill mosquitoes on contact. These products could be efficient and cost-effective, unlike regular mosquito repellents.
Since beginning to franchise in 2020, Mosquito Mary’s has opened several locations across the United States. It is actively seeking to expand its reach.
