MosquitoNix expands franchise opportunities to outdoor businesses

March 12, 2013 -  By

CARROLLTON, TEXAS—MosquitoNix is offering franchise opportunities for the first time in five years, primarily to existing outdoor service business owners.  MosquitoNix is expanding nationwide as part of a strategic plan to double its size in 2013, and open as many as 50 new franchises in 2013.  With a nationwide surge in demand for mosquito control, MosquitoNix projects opening upward of 200 franchisees by 2015.

“We have changed our franchise model to capitalize on a rise in demand for MosquitoNix all around the country,” says Dan O’Neal, chairman & CEO of FEMO Group Franchise System, MosquitoNix’s parent company. “Now an existing outdoor service business can ‘add on’ MosquitoNix in an easy and affordable way to help their customers get rid of mosquitoes and other flying insects. MosquitoNix will help businesses compete in this profitable fast growing business.  A minimum investment and being licensed in the state in which you operate is all it takes to join our team.”

MosquitoNix offers installed mosquito misting systems and ongoing barrier treatments called QuickNix.  MosquitoNix misting system nozzles are placed every 10 to 12 ft. around the perimeter of a home, and on average mist three to four times per day, each lasting 20 to 45 seconds. Pyrethrum, permethrin and essential oils are the active ingredients used in the mosquito control systems.

QuickNix is a three-step program that includes fogging, granules and larvicide (Bt-israelensis, or Bt-i) applications.

MosquitoNix franchises are exclusive to each market.  Franchise partners get brand affiliation, comprehensive training, and ongoing sales and marketing support.  MosquitoNix discounts (up to 30%) on products and operational efficiencies, allows franchisees to show a greater profit margin and continue to grow their business.  Qualified franchisees can receive up to fifty-percent financing of the Initial Franchise Fee (IFF).

“It may be winter, but now is the time for families to prepare for mosquito season, which starts in the spring and ends in the late fall,” says Josh Ingram, MosquitoNix vice president of operations. “We are looking for pest control professionals, landscapers, pool & spa and any other outdoor service business owners to take advantage of the current high demand for mosquito control in the marketplace.”

MosquitoNix franchise expansion will initially focus on regions in North America most affected by the West Nile Virus outbreak, like Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, Kansas, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Colorado, South Dakota, Nebraska and Virginia.
