Mosquito Squad, the largest and most trusted mosquito and tick control franchise in North America, has announced its global expansion with the launch of its first operation in East Africa through an agreement that covers Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. These are the first international markets for Mosquito Squad, which currently has more than 240 operating territories throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Owned and operated by Fred Rariewa, Mosquito Squad will initially focus on Nairobi, Kenya by providing mosquito protection to areas where pest-born illnesses are prevalent and growing.
“We are thrilled to have selected a talented operator to represent our brand and provide Mosquito Squad service in this important international market. Our presence in East Africa will provide an important community service by helping to prevent citizens in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania from being affected by dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses,” said Chris Grandpre, chairman and chief executive officer of Outdoor Living Brands, parent company of Mosquito Squad. “As a long-time financial supporter of Malaria No More, we’ve worked for years to educate and prevent the spread of malaria throughout Africa where more than 425,000 children die every year from this preventable and treatable disease. By bringing our mosquito control services directly to the people of East Africa, we’ll have the opportunity to make an even greater impact.”
By providing useful mosquito management knowledge and consistently delivering exceptional services, Mosquito Squad has earned the trust of consumers and continues to experience rapid growth as a result, with over 240 locations nationwide.
