We’ve stayed busy during the off-season training new Mosquito Joe business owners and are excited to announce many new locations opening this spring. The Mosquito Joe family is growing, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

Your Ticket to a Mosquito-Free 2017

We know it doesn’t seem like it based on what the thermometer reads, but spring is just around the corner. We take our job of keeping yards itch-free seriously, and since mosquitoes become active once the temperature reaches and stays above 55 degrees consistently, the MoJo vans are getting ready to roll! And we want you to be prepared to enjoy your outdoor space as soon as possible.

While being able to sit outside and bask in the glow of the sun (and not in the smell of insect repellent) is one great reason to call Mosquito Joe, another exciting reason is the opportunity to pre-pay upfront for an entire summer of mosquito-free outdoor fun! Why worry about remembering to pay your mosquito control bill when you can make a one-time payment now and not have to think about it again until next year?

For a limited time, Mosquito Joe locations across the country are offering discounts on an entire season of sprays. We guarantee your satisfaction and will not bind you to a contract, so you have nothing to lose! To take advantage of this offer, please call or email your local Mosquito Joe for a personalized quote before time runs out.

If you’re new to Mosquito Joe, let us give you the rundown:

  • Mosquito Joe barrier spray treatments rid your yard of pesky mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks for up to 21 days.
  • Our technicians are trained mosquito control experts dedicated to one thing: getting rid of mosquitoes so that you can enjoy being outside again.
  • We also offer an all-natural spray option that repels mosquitoes for up to 14 days, perfect for use around gardens, fish ponds, and flowers.
  • We do not require customers to sign contracts, which gives you the flexibility you need to fully enjoy your outdoor space.

And if you’re a returning customer, welcome back! We want to take the opportunity and thank you for an amazing 2016. We hope you loved being back outside and enjoying your outdoor space (without mosquitoes!) as much as we enjoyed making it happen. If you have any questions about the Mosquito Joe Pre-Pay Program and available discounts, just give your local Joe a call and we’d be happy to get you on the path to a mosquito-free 2017!

Meet a Joe: Sharon Lerche

*Occasionally we like to provide a blog post that will help you get to know Joe. From our technicians to our Corporate staff to our hardworking franchisees – we think our company is full of people you ought to know!*

This week we’d like to introduce you to a member of the Corporate staff, Sharon Lerche. Sharon joined Mosquito Joe after a long career with Taco Bell, 29 years to be exact! She moved from a Restaurant General Manager to a Training Project Manager in charge of making sure training was happening properly in the 25 Taco Bells in her area and training new managers. Mixing her passion for service with extensive experience makes the role a perfect fit.

As the Operations Administrative Assistant, she not only dedicates her experience to the overall organization and efficiency of the operations team at Mosquito Joe, but also to the day-to-day success of our franchisees across the country. We are so excited to have Sharon in the MoJo family!

Here are some fun facts about Sharon, so you can get to know her like we have! Welcome, Sharon!

What do you love most about your job?

I love that my job requires me to work with everyone at some point. Every day I do something different with new challenges, which I am excited to conquer.

What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?

I am the biggest cheerleader around (maybe because I always wanted to be one in a former life). I always try to stay positive and find solutions. I am also extremely organized and efficient. Once I learn the job, I can get a lot accomplished in a short period of time.

What is your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?

“If you decide not to call Mosquito Joe, save this card for swatting.” This shows that we do not take ourselves too seriously and the company is about fun.

How do you like to spend your time outdoors?

Every February we go skiing in West Virginia, I love to lay in the sun next to a swimming pool for when I get too hot. I love to work in my flower beds: planting, weeding, watching stuff grow.

If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?

I have had several “ultimate vacations.” I have traveled to Alaska and seen whales swim right by my room. I rode in a helicopter over Hawaiian volcanoes and danced at a luau. I rode in a gondola in Venice, visited Mary’s last home in Ephesus, Turkey,and bought roasted lamb on the street in Athens, Greece. My next adventure will be a river cruise starting in New Orleans and ending in Memphis this September. The only thing that would make all these trips even better would be if my kids and grandkids could have come as well.

How attracted are mosquitoes to you?

Mosquitoes absolutely LOVE me. I must have some awesome CO2.

Veteran´s Day 2016

Veteran’s Day is a chance for us to honor the bravery and service for U.S. service members, past and present. We are lucky enough to have our Corporate office right down the street from the largest naval base in the world, which makes Virginia Beach a vibrant military community. It is such a privilege to live among many of those who are dedicated and have given so much for our country. Since we started franchising in 2013 we’ve taken great pride in being a company that can offer veterans an option to not only own their own business, but to utilize the skills the military gave them.

For the third year, Mosquito Joe is listed as a Top Franchise Opportunities for Veterans by Franchise Business Review. Franchising offers veterans a chance to apply leadership skills as a business owner while continuing to serve their communities in a team environment. The Corporate support available helps ease any lack of business experience that veterans may have. This might be one in seven franchise owners nationwide is a veteran!

Veteran's Day 2016Not only do we live among veterans in Virginia Beach, but we work among them and their family members too! A large portion of the Mosquito Joe Corporate staff is either a veteran themselves or is related/married to one. Let’s get to know some of them!

Our Chief Operating Officer Brian Garrison retired in 2012 after serving over twenty years in the U.S. Navy focused on naval aviation. Learn more about him in an article from Entrepreneur Magazine titled Call of Duty. It’s a great article about how military skills transition well to owning a franchise. We’re so glad he’s on the Mosquito Joe team and immensely grateful for his service. He’s pictured to the right with his wife Melissa and kids Connor and Ruby after returning from a deployment aboard the USS Eisenhower in 2009.

Veteran's Day 2016Valerie Sanetrik, one of Mosquito Joe’s Franchise Business Coaches, dedicates her work hours to being the right hand guide for many of our franchise owners across the country. However, Valerie also serves as a Second Lieutenant Medical Officer for the Maryland National Guard. See her pictured below as she attends a basic officer leadership course.

Another one of our Franchise Business Coaches, Nick Sell, came to Mosquito Joe after serving 10 years in the U.S. Navy. He specialized in communications and intel with Seal Team Six and the NATO Office of Security.

A fun fact about veterans and the Mosquito Joe Corporate office is that we have our own unofficial spouse’s club! Check out the photos below to see how many of our gals are married to or dating active duty and retired members of the armed forces.

Veteran's Day 2016

We couldn’t be more proud of all the veterans and active duty military members that are part of the Mosquito Joe system. A sincere thank you to all who have served to protect this country.

Meet a Joe: Jayme Sabo – Director of Marketing

*Occasionally we like to provide a blog post that will help you get to know Joe. From our technicians to our Corporate staff to our hardworking franchisees – we think our company is full of people you ought to know!**

This week we’d like to introduce you to one of our newest members of the Corporate staff, Jayme Sabo.  Jayme brings a wealth of marketing and advertising experience to Mosquito Joe after relocating to Virginia Beach from Tucson, Arizona. She has worked in both the agency world and a variety of corporate settings including financial services, real estate development, and the Indy Racing League. Jayme also worked as a consumer marketing manager for a large car wash business with more than 100 locations in ten states. Coming back to the franchise world was a perfect fit for Jayme as she grew up in a franchisee family helping her father with his ten-unit Subway franchise.

As the Director of Marketing, she not only dedicates her experience to the overall best marketing strategy for Mosquito Joe, but also to the day-to-day success of our franchisees across the country. We are so excited to have Jayme in the MoJo family and on our marketing team!

Here are some fun facts about Jayme, so you can get to know her like we have! Welcome, Jayme!

What is your favorite part about your position at Mosquito Joe?

With such a fun brand, excited and engaged franchisees, and an amazing staff at Corporate, there are just endless possibilities on what I’m able to explore and do. It’s a marketer’s dream job – being part of this team that is able to innovate and directly contribute to the growth of the business owners and success of the brand.

What is your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?

It’s a toss-up between “Stop smacking yourself in the face.” and “Tired of being the main course?” They’re just so funny – easy to visualize and relatable.

How do you like to spend your time outdoors?

I just relocated from Tucson, Arizona to Virginia Beach, so my new answer is being at the beach! I enjoy anywhere I can take my dogs and love being in the backyard for barbecues and spending time with family and friends.

If you could invite three people to a party, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

John F. Kennedy because I’d love to get his thoughts on the goings-on of today. My maternal grandfather who I never met and would love to opportunity to get to know. And Ellen DeGeneres because she’s hilarious and generous.

If you were shipwrecked, what three items would you want with you?

Solar-powered eBook reader, a water filter, and a large box of matches.

How attracted are mosquitoes to you?

If my sisters are with me, I’m not nearly as attractive to mosquitoes as they are, and I’m completely okay with that!
