Mosquito Squad, the largest and most trusted mosquito and tick control franchise in North America, announced it has signed a master license agreement for Indonesia. After the first international launch of Mosquito Squad in East Africa, the pest control franchise recognized a larger need for global expansion with efforts focused on combating dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses. The master licensee, Pt. Multi Niaga Harvest, led by Cecilia Wirawan with support and assistance from her husband, Louis Mahadi, will spearhead initial operations in the region, starting with the island of Java near the capital Jakarta.
With a dense, tropical climate and forested land inhabiting the country, Indonesia suffers a great deal of insect-borne illnesses and is in urgent need of results-driven efforts that can eliminate the spread of mosquitoes throughout the country. Cecilia Wirawan and Louis Mahadi know firsthand the life-threatening impact of mosquito-borne diseases. Cecilia suffered dengue fever three times, Louis twice, and they have watched one of their sons suffer from dengue as well. With more than 15 years of entrepreneurial experience, the couple looks forward to bringing change to communities across Indonesia and growing Mosquito Squad’s presence in Southeast Asia.
Mosquito Squad currently has more than 240 franchise locations in the United States and specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces, allowing Americans to enjoy their yards, outdoor living spaces, special events and green spaces.
