Boosting Your Business: Discover the Buzz Behind Offering Mosquito Services

Looking for an additional service line that doesn’t call for a lot of upfront investment and has the potential to make money with existing and new customers? Mosquito control might be an offering to consider.


The Benefits

Kevin Seminerio, operations manager for Joshua Tree, based in Stockertown, Pennsylvania, says mosquito control is a simple service line that doesn’t take a lot of equipment or manpower and it is easy to implement and sell.

Getting Started

The first step to launching your mosquito service is having the proper training and a license. Leahy says it is critical to be mindful when spraying the targeted areas.
There are multiple methods for applying mosquito control products. There are backpack blowers, which can be very effective at getting the product on the undersides of leaves. Misting systems that can be installed, like an irrigation system, are another option. Granular insect growth regulators and mosquito traps are other strategies.

Selling the Service

One of the aspects of offering mosquito services is you need to be clear in your messaging that no treatment will eradicate mosquitoes from a property entirely. Leahy says using the terms ‘mosquito control’ or ‘mosquito reduction’ are more accurate. Seminerio says setting clear expectations with the client is key. Otherwise, you will be making a lot of service calls.

“When we’re selling it, we’re not selling it as we’re going to get rid of all of your mosquitoes,” Seminerio says. “This is to reduce the population to make your home more livable.”

You also want to decide if your company will offer flea and tick control along with your mosquito services. Leahy says for them, it’s a similar product. They just have to treat some areas a little differently so it’s an easy addition.

For planters and beds

Potting Soil

Designed with landscapers in mind. This soil is great for all container sizes - such as mixed planters or specimen annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, mums, and large patio planters.

Coarse southern pine bark is utilized in the blend to provide long term structural stability as the larger particle sizes are more resistant to degradation over time due to smaller relative surface area. This pine also provides adequate porosity to the blend, eliminating the need for aggregates such as perlite. Mix is pH buffered with a combination of dolomitic and high calcium lime to ensure proper Ca/Mg balance in the substrate. Starter charge provides up to 2 weeks of crop support. Blue chip (38-0-0) is included to stabilize the organic matter in blends to prevent any nitrogen immobilization. The Landscaper’s Pro: All Purpose Potting Soil is manufactured at optimum moisture content of 45 to 55 percent.

Landscaper’s Pro All Purpose Potting Soil contains: 1/2” and 3/8” Southern Pine Bark Fines, Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss, Coconut Coir, Starter Charge & Blue Chip, Phosphorous, Mycorrhizae, Lime and Wetting Agent.
