    About MosquitoNix

    MosquitoNix franchises are great businesses. We have spent several years perfecting and proving our business model in several markets around the country. Profitability may be a key factor in our franchise partner's success, but customer service and relationships are what drives us.MosquitoNix 01 We have an incredible 97% customer retention rate. With over 20,000 systems installed we are very proud that our customers choose to renew their mosquito control programs year-after-year. We've been able to achieve this by providing first-class training and follow-up support to our franchise operators and the staff on the front lines. Recently, we've opened up new franchise opportunities in a variety of markets. Our focus is on business owners who already have a successful outdoor services company. We have found that by adding a MosquitoNix franchise alongside the existing business, you can increase your sales and profits without adding any NEW customers. And if you add new customers, the potential skyrockets.
