The Clarion Ledger: Mosquito Joe Plans to Open in Mississippi

The threat of the Zika virus has Mosquito Joe making plans to expand into Mississippi.

Mosquito Joe is planning to expand to Mississippi, with a focus on the Jackson area.

According to The Clarion-Ledger, 23 cases of the Zika virus have been confirmed in Mississippi, and Mosquito Joe has observed a correlated increase in demand for mosquito control -- something they hope to help out with through the expansion.

"We think Mississippi is a great market for us. We would love to get in there and help create jobs," Mosquito Joe COO, Brian Garrison told The Clarion-Ledger. "We can't solve the Zika problem, but we're part of the solution when it comes to mosquito control."

Once a qualified franchisee has been identified, Mosquito Joe could potentially have a local presence as early as April 2017.
