Mosquito Squad Launches First Location In Arizona

America’s Most Trusted Mosquito and Tick Control Company Continues Expansion 

June 23, 2017 // // 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 Arizona, in the Scottsdale area. Owned by husband-and-wife team Chuck Wells and Lulu Gonzalez-Wells, Mosquito Squad of Greater Scottsdale is now providing mosquito and tick protection to Scottsdale and surrounding areas. 

“We are thrilled to be joining the Mosquito Squad family and introduce the brand to our local community,” said Wells. “The mosquito and tick populations and associated diseases such as West Nile Virus and Zika have grown exponentially in the U.S. over the past several years, and our goal is to educate homeowners in the Phoenix area 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, Wells was an insurance agent for more than 40 years and owned and operated his own insurance agency in Rochester, New York. His wife will join him in the Mosquito Squad business and will play an active role in sales and marketing. The husband-and-wife team utilized Mosquito Squad’s services in Rochester, NY, and after experiencing great results, saw the need for a similar service in the Phoenix area where he spends half of the year. The entrepreneurs look forward to building a successful family business to benefit local citizens in surrounding areas during mosquito season. 

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: 

  • Mosquito Control Barrier Protection – Acclaimed, trusted and dependable mosquito control solution that eliminates mosquitoes 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
  • Automatic Misting Systems – Continuous mosquito control
  • Special Event Treatments – Barrier treatment applied about 24-48 hours prior to guests arrival that includes extra protection against biting, stinging insects
  • Tick Control – Effective blend of barrier treatment and tick tubes to eliminate ticks before they can get to you
