March 30, 2017 // Franchising.com // Richmond, Va. - Mosquito Squad, the largest and most trusted mosquito and tick control franchise in North America, announced today the launch of its first location in Puerto Rico. Owned by Simon Benus, Mosquito Squad of Puerto Rico East will provide mosquito and tick protection to San Juan and other municipalities beginning Wednesday, March 29.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Mosquito Squad family and introducing the brand to Puerto Rico, a country that is brimming with economic development from small businesses and entrepreneurs just like me,” said Benus. “The mosquito and tick populations and associated viruses such as Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya have grown exponentially in Puerto Rico and has been a large problem for the residents of Puerto Rico over the past several years. Our goal is to educate homeowners in San Juan on how to take a proactive approach to mosquito and tick elimination so that they can enjoy outdoor living in comfort.”
Before joining the Mosquito Squad family, Benus worked in the hotel industry for more than a decade. He earned his Masters of Business Administration from the University of Miami and specializes in project management, customer service and accounting. The entrepreneur has been looking to start his own business for years, and with Puerto Rico’s substantial mosquito population year-round, he was drawn to Mosquito Squad and its franchised structure.
Mosquito Squad uses the latest EPA-registered mosquito control barrier treatments, larvicide and all-natural substances to eliminate mosquitoes from yards and outdoor spaces. The brand protects families (and pets) from the nuisance and danger of mosquitoes and ticks by offering top-of-the-line services that help customers take back their yards, including:
