VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (PRWEB) August 18, 2016
Mosquito Joe, one of the nation’s leading mosquito control treatment companies serving residential and commercial customers nationwide, ended its second quarter by shattering all of its previous revenue records. The brand is celebrating a 144 percent increase in system-wide revenue from the same period in 2015, and now boasts an impressive 169 open territories across the country. That strong national presence is up from 113 open territories the year before.
“The growth Mosquito Joe has experienced so far in 2016 proves that our innovative business model and superior services are resonating, not just with consumers, but with driven entrepreneurs who see just how much this service is needed,” said Kevin Wilson, Mosquito Joe chief executive officer and “Head Joe.” “That momentum is only growing. We plan to leverage our position as an industry leader to keep fueling our strategic expansion efforts in the months and years to come; and by 2018, be the largest outdoor pest control company in the country.”
The demand for Mosquito Joe’s expert services is at an all-time high. Concerns surrounding the Zika virus, which is primarily transmitted through mosquito bites, have prompted a growing number of consumers to turn to brand’s services for help. But Mosquito Joe isn’t just expanding into new territories to keep up with that demand. The company is also increasing its education initiatives on both national and local levels.
In the second quarter of the year alone, the brand helped raise awareness about mosquito-borne illnesses like Zika and the West Nile Virus by joining forces with local blood donation centers across the country. Mosquito Joe’s fourth annual “Beat the Bloodsuckers” campaign organized blood drives and gave back to local communities as part of National Mosquito Control Awareness Week. The brand partnered with 27 blood centers in 22 states and helped raise more that $10,000 in one week alone.
“Educating consumers on mosquito control is our number one priority all year long,” Wilson said. “At the end of the day, we want to give people the tools and resources that they need to make outside fun again. To make that mission a reality, we’re continuing to expand our mosquito treatment services to new communities across the country.”
The brand’s rapid and strategic growth has also earned it a coveted spot on this year’s Inc. 5000 list, ranking No. 128 of the fastest-growing businesses in the United States. That recognition, combined with the brand’s growing national presence, has positioned Mosquito Joe to enter 2017 positioned for even larger scale growth.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

“There’s no doubt that this is going to be another strong year for us, from both a development and educational perspective. We’re excited to grow into new territories this year, and ultimately take the Mosquito Joe brand to the next level,” said Wilson.
