Mosquito Defend Launches First Oklahoma Franchise Location


“Broken Arrow is an obvious area to focus on because of its population and the desire of residents to go outdoors and take advantage of the area’s milder seasons combined with the warmer summer months.”

Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporation, a leading residential mosquito and tick control service with over 80 locations in the United States, is expanding its presence in Oklahoma with the launch of Mosquito Shield of Broken Arrow.

Commenting on the company’s recent expansion, Michael Moorhouse, Vice President of Mosquito Shield said, “The control of mosquitoes and ticks in residential areas is a rapidly growing business. As the first company in this area over 19 years ago, we have the foundation to be extremely well positioned for growth. “

Mosquito Shield spent over a decade honing its formulas and application methods from its Massachusetts headquarters before launching a franchise model for local entrepreneurs in 2013.

“Our methodological approach to growth prepared us well for the effects of the COVID pandemic,” said Moorhouse. “While many businesses have struggled with stay-at-home contracts, such conditions have created a booming market for our services because people can enjoy the outdoors from their own backyards rather than on vacation or at restaurants or large gatherings. As people invest more in making their shipyards recreational destinations, the opportunity for Mosquito Shield to expand into new markets has exploded and we are seeing an active growth period as a result. Broken Arrow is an obvious area given its population and residents’ desire to be outdoors and take advantage of the region’s milder seasons combined with the warmer summer months. “

The Broken Arrow site is owned by Joseph Seila and will serve a large area spanning the eastern suburbs of Tulsa as well as the communities of Broken Arrow, New Tulsa, Glenpool, Inola and more.

Seila, a longtime Oklahoma resident, says, “I grew up in Inola, OK, about 20 minutes northeast of Tulsa. After college, I lived in Oklahoma City and worked for Devon Energy as a data manager for nine years. I then moved to Texas for a couple of years before returning to my roots in Inola in 2018 to be closer to family. After working as an independent contractor for a few years and becoming an entrepreneur with my own start-up, I decided I didn’t want to return to corporate life and I am confident that Mosquito Shield will be a perfect opportunity for me. I look forward to serving this amazing community and helping families get the most out of their outdoor spaces. “
