Mosquito Control is What We Do. Protecting Families is Who We Are.

Let Mosquito Authority help you take back your yard and get back to enjoying the great outdoors worry-free.

Our Story

Mosquito Authority started more than 15 years ago when President and Founder, Joey Osborne, was searching for a way to let his three daughters play in their yard without worrying about mosquitoes and the potentially life-threatening diseases they spread. Once he treated his yard and saw how effective it could be, he knew he had to find a way to help people do the same.

Since then, we’ve since grown to perform over 600,000 mosquito control treatments every year, and our passion for helping people take back their yards is as strong as ever.

Mosquito Authority truly believes we’re the best mosquito control service out there, which is why we offer our customers a 100% satisfaction guarantee with no contracts or commitments. We’re proud to help people in our communities take back their yards from mosquitoes and protect their loved ones from the dangers of these harmful insects. Now is the time to say goodbye to mosquitoes – for good.

Our Process

Step 1 : Identify the Problem

Our experts are usually able to determine the problem on our initial call with you by asking a few simple questions. We’ll talk about where and when you’re seeing the pests, what your property looks like, and how you use your yard.

Step 2 : Inspect Your Property

At your first appointment, a certified mosquito control specialist will perform a comprehensive inspection of your property to identify the problem and determine how to eliminate your mosquitoes or other pests for good.

Step 3 : Perform the Treatment

Our unique, multi-step treatment process breaks the mosquito life cycle. By identifying and treating their entire habitat, mosquito larvae and adult mosquitoes alike are eliminated from your property almost immediately. Then, we return every 21 days to make sure they stay gone for good.

Step 4 : You Stay Mosquito Free, or We’ll be back

While nothing can eliminate absolutely every mosquito from your property, our method works so well that we guarantee you won’t be bothered by mosquitoes between treatments. If you are? All you have to do is all, and we’ll come back to re-assess and, if necessary, re-treat your property at no additional charge. If you aren’t happy with the results, we’ll happily refund your money. No Contracts. No Commitments. No Mosquitoes. Guaranteed.

Our People

A letter from Joey Osborne, Founder and President of Mosquito Authority

Back in 2002, I founded Mosquito Authority in my own backyard to ensure that my three little girls could go outside and play without getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. Now, more than 15 years later, Mosquito Authority has grown to perform over 600,00 mosquito treatments every year.

Our mission is to help people take back their yards. Our customers want to use their pools and patios without the annoyance of mosquitoes. For several years, knowing that our service protected people from itchy bites was enough.

Until one Sunday morning, everything changed. I heard a woman on TV talking about losing her five-year-old a mosquito bite. I’ll never forget when she said, "I just wish someone had told me that a mosquito bite could kill my child."

I suddenly realized that I could have been that "someone" who told that grieving mom exactly what she needed to know – what we all need to know. Even though I knew mosquitoes weren't just annoying, I had chosen not to share that knowledge because I was afraid people would accuse me of using scare tactics for my own personal gain. I intentionally left that information out of all my company's marketing materials and the conversations I had with people.

Now, I don't care what people think. That very day, I set new intentions for myself and my business. I decided to use this avenue I've been blessed with to be the person that mom needed and make Mosquito Authority's mission inform as many people as humanly possible of the dangers of mosquito-borne diseases. If we can save the life of just one child by spreading information, we've succeeded.

Mosquitoes don't just make you itch. They can make you sick. The diseases they carry can cause birth defects and permanent disabilities. One mosquito bite can kill a child. As much as we want you to enjoy your yard, we want even more for you to be aware of the dangers that mosquitoes pose.

We are the biggest mosquito control company out there, and we have the unique opportunity to reach hundreds of thousands of people with this message. It's too important to the health and safety of you and your family to ignore

To your health and happiness,
