We all know that April showers bring May flowers. In Georgia, we might also confidently predict that last month’s rain will bring this month’s mosquitoes. And a recent season of heavy rains will likely yield a bumper crop of them.
Jody Wheeler and Chad Woodall are the co-owners of Mosquito-Free, the leading locally owned mosquito control service. Since they started their business in 2016, they’ve experienced rapid, year-to-year growth in Canton, Woodstock, and the surrounding areas.
With Mosquito-Free’s 8th anniversary in view, those in need of a mosquito control company can try the services at a perfect time, since the company is now featuring its best offer to date.
What Sets Mosquito-Free Apart?
From the beginning, Wheeler and Woodall have wanted their interactions with both customers and employees to be positive in every facet.
“We wanted to be the Chick-fil-A of mosquito control,” Woodall says, recalling a certain conversation the two of them had at the outset. He says the success they’ve experienced is largely due to the people they employ.
“During our interview process with each prospective employee, Jody and I tell the story of our initial business planning sessions. It’s important that our team shares our vision. And there’s loyalty on both sides — theirs and ours,” Woodall explains.
The average tenure of Mosquito-Free employees is more than four years. And, currently, the entire team hails from Cherokee County, which adds to the local character of the company. The full-time technicians are licensed in mosquito control and receive ongoing training through the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
Customers have noticed Mosquito-Free’s positive vibe and reliability, having rewarded the company by voting it “Best of Life” for Pest Control/Mosquito Control in Family Life magazines. Customers have further designated the company as their “Neighborhood Favorite” through Nextdoor.
Giving Back to the Community
Mosquito-Free serves Canton and Woodstock as well as Acworth, Jasper, Kennesaw, and neighboring areas. As lifelong residents of Cherokee County, Wheeler and Woodall have found that these cities form a tight-knit community.
“The support of this community is another reason for our company’s growth,” says Wheeler. “Area residents love to ‘keep it local’ by supporting businesses such as ours.”
From the time they launched their business, the co-owners have desired to support worthwhile efforts around Cherokee County. Each year, Mosquito-Free offers area churches a complimentary mosquito treatment ahead of summer Vacation Bible School events.
“We have done the same for area Boy Scout outings and for the Great Lake Allatoona Clean-Up,” Wheeler says. “And some of our most rewarding and memorable experiences have come from volunteering at Cast for Kids on Lake Lanier and Special Needs Day at the Lake on Lake Allatoona.”
“We’re doing all we can to keep Cherokee County mosquito free,” adds Woodall.
Mosquito-Free in ‘23
Who needs Mosquito-Free? Probably most residents, since the metro Atlanta area has once again received the same prestigious award it has earned for the better part of the last decade: Worst Mosquito City in the U.S.
“You never know what mosquitoes are carrying,” Wheeler says. “It’s no wonder that many homeowners rely on us to reduce the mosquito populations. Those who like to spend time outdoors need our services. Our customers won’t have to douse themselves
in bug spray anymore.”
Mosquito-borne diseases should be a concern, especially to those with young children and pets. The heartworm parasite can be deadly to pets, and it’s only transmitted by mosquitoes. Prevention by spraying is better than having to treat an infected pet with medication.
On a 21-day cycle, from March through October, Mosquito-Free technicians treat residential yards by applying a solution derived from the extract of Chrysanthemum flowers. The process they use is efficient, affordable, safe for plants, and highly effective.
Getting Started Is Easy
The services that Mosquito-Free offers are listed in detail on the company’s website, where customers can complete a form and receive a quote without delay. Either Wheeler or Woodall will provide an estimate over the phone, although some properties may require an onsite assessment.
“Either Chad or I will answer the phone 99% of the time,” Wheeler says. “Our callers won’t be dialing into a call center and speaking with someone in another city or state. We also respond right away to any issue that concerns a customer.”
