Mosquito Squad Opens 100th Franchise In Southeast Georgia To Combat Mosquitoes And Ticks

Company Continues Expansion of the Nation's Largest Tick & Mosquito Elimination Brand

RICHMOND, Va. - March 27, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Mosquito Squad, North America's largest and most trusted tick and mosquito control brand, has hit a milestone with the opening of its 100th franchise location, Mosquito Squad of Southeast Georgia owned by Michael and Monica Fendley of Woodbine, GA.

Mosquito Squad specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces so homeowners can enjoy their yards, outdoor events, and outdoor living and dining spaces. Now with over 120 locations slated to open this Spring, the company has been recognized as one of the country's fastest growing franchise concepts in 2012 and 2011 by INC. Magazine.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5,387 cases of West Nile were reported in 2012, with 243 deaths. West Nile is spread only via the bite of an infected mosquito. Incidents of Lyme disease, spread via ticks, have increased as well, with more than 32,000 confirmed and probable cases reported in 2012, up from 22,000 in 2011.

"The mosquito and tick populations and associated diseases such as West Nile Virus and Lyme disease have grown exponentially in the U.S. over the past several years, and our growth is due in part to that," said Scott Zide , president and COO of Outdoor Living Brands, parent company of Mosquito Squad. "Our goal is to educate homeowners on how to take a proactive approach to mosquito and tick elimination so that they can enjoy outdoor living in comfort."
