There’s no shortage of reasons to franchise with Mosquito Hunters. From a recurring revenue stream to a low cost of entry and simple business model, the financial advantages that come with being a part of the Mosquito Hunters brand have resonated well with business owners across the country — in 2019 alone, the brand had 42 new franchisee signings, nearly 70 new units awarded and over 80 units open before the end of the year. But not all of the reasons to franchise with Mosquito Hunters are financial. 

Another thing that makes the Mosquito Hunters franchise opportunity attractive to aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs is the wealth of culture and lifestyle benefits that come with ownership. For example, because Mosquito Hunters is a seasonal concept, franchisees have more flexibility during the quieter winter months to work on their business.

This was one of the main reasons that Anthony Scheeda, a franchisee with Mosquito Hunters in Buffalo, New York, was interested in franchising with the brand. He said, “Not only are we not working year-round, but having that break also gives us time to reflect on the business. We get to see where we did well, what we can improve and how we can make the next season even better.” 

Owning a Mosquito Hunters franchise also gives franchisees like Scheeda and his wife, Eliza, the ability to spend more time with their families. The business model is designed so that it can easily be run out of a home, which makes it an ideal option for parents of children who want to save on childcare expenses. As an added bonus, those children can then be raised around a business and learn first-hand from their parents what it takes.

“My wife is a stay-at-home mom, and she wanted to transition back into the workforce,” said Scheeda. “This business model has been perfect for us because we can run it out of our home.”

The Scheedas’ children are ages 5, 8 and 13, and they’ve noticed that their eldest son is already showing interest in the business operations behind the scenes. Scheeda added, “He wants to learn how to do some of the things my wife does like invoicing and scheduling. Our children see the technicians coming to the house and they always ask a ton of questions.”

By providing franchisees with a business model that boasts benefits outside of work as well, Mosquito Hunters stands out from the competition.

Ronald Ens, franchise development manager for Mosquito Hunters, said, “At the end of the day, we’re only successful when our franchisees are successful. That’s why our entire business model is set up with them in mind — we want our local owners to be excited to be a part of the Mosquito Hunters team. We’re proud to be able to offer a business ownership opportunity that supports a positive work-life balance while also providing the opportunity to take charge of your financial future.”

The total investment necessary to open a Mosquito Hunters franchise ranges from $71,937 to $94,937.. The franchise license fee ranges from $25,000 to $35,000. For more information on franchising opportunities with Mosquito Hunters, visit
