Mosquito Squad Launches First Location In Berkshire County
First-Time Franchisees Expand the Brand’s Presence in Massachusetts
June 08, 2017 // Franchising.com // RICHMOND, Va. - Mosquito Squad, the largest and most trusted mosquito and tick control franchise in North America, announced today its expansion into Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Mosquito Squad of Berkshire County is located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Jim Nichols and Judith Tierney, along with their long-time friend, Richard Asher. The trio provides the latest EPA-registered mosquito elimination services to communities throughout Berkshire County.
Asher was born in Pittsfield and has nearly two decades of experience in sales, marketing, management and operations with Motorola, Inc. and GE Plastics. A Siena College graduate, he’s a first-time franchisee but longtime entrepreneur and has owned his own business, Sideline Saloon, LLC, for more than 12 years. His partners, Tierney and Nichols, are also first-time franchisees. Nichols has more than 20 years of sales experience and currently owns his own insurance agency. Tierney has franchise experience from her involvement in her family’s Jiffy Lube and is also a current owner and co-operator of Friends Grille in Pittsfield.
“We were looking for additional opportunities and Mosquito Squad’s proven business model and exceptional support network was the perfect fit for us,” said Tierney.
“Berkshire County is a rural area with many outdoor venues for music, entertainment and other activities. Mosquitoes often spoil warm weather evenings during the summer months, and we want to change that. Protection from mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses has never been more important. We look forward to providing that protection to all of Berkshire County this season,” added Asher.
Mosquito Squad uses the latest EPA-registered mosquito control barrier treatments, larvicide and all-natural substances to eliminate mosquitoes and ticks 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:
- Mosquito Control Barrier Protection - Acclaimed, trusted and dependable mosquito control solution that eliminates mosquitoes and ticks on contact and provides residual protection for up to 3 weeks
- All-Natural Protection - Made up of essential oils, a non-synthetic treatment that is the ideal alternative for mosquito control
- Special Event Treatments - Barrier treatment applied about 24-48 hours prior to guests arrival that includes extra protection against biting, stinging insects
