A Sample Mosquito Control Business Plan Template

1. Industry Overview

Mosquitoes are can be found in all parts of the world and many of them transmit pathogens which may cause disease. These diseases include mosquito-borne viral encephalitis, dengue, yellow fever, malaria, and filariasis. Most of these diseases have been prominent as endemic or epidemic diseases in the United States in the past, but today, only the insect-borne (arboviral) encephalitides occur annually and dengue occurs periodically in this country.

Mosquito control basically refers to a business that monitors the potential sources and outbreak of mosquito-borne diseases and provides advice on prevention and control of these diseases. Modern mosquito control programs in the U.S. are multifaceted and include surveillance, source reduction, and a variety of larval and adult mosquito control strategies.

Please note that mosquito control business is a subset of the Pest Control industry and when we talk of pest control, we are talking of a service that is as old as agricultural practices. In order to maximize food production, it is advantageous to protect crops from competing species of plants.

The Pest Control industry provides a wide range of extermination services for mosquitoes, rodents, termites, bed bugs, cockroaches, ants, flies, ticks, fleas, wasps and spiders. Businesses in the pest control industry also provide fumigation services and containment services for birds such as pigeons, woodpeckers and European starlings et al.

If you are conversant with the industry, you will observe that well – structured pest control companies also offer services such as building maintenance, landscaping care and maintenance and lawn and garden services.

No doubt, the rise of mosquitos and other pests across the United States has left homeowners and business owners frustrated, but it has been a blessing for businesses in the Pest Control industry. The increased occurrence of mosquitos and other pests has led to substantial demand for exterminators and rising service prices.

It was projected that within the next five years, there will be an increase in business and consumer spending which of course will drive the demand for regular control and inspections for mosquitos and other pests. So also, with increase in income, businesses and consumers will be less likely to opt for low-cost household products from home and garden stores.

The Pest Control industry of which mosquito control is a part of is indeed a large industry and pretty much thriving in all the parts of the world. Rentokil Initial, Rollins Inc. and Service Master Global Holdings Inc. are the pest control companies with the leading market shares in the industry.

Statistics has it that in the United States of America alone, there are about 26,950 licensed and registered pest control businesses (mosquito control businesses inclusive) responsible for employing about 131,417 employees and the industry rakes in a whooping sum of $14bn annually with an annual growth rate projected at 2.4 percent between 2013 and 2018.

Over and above, mosquito control businesses all over the world are still enjoying support from governments, charity organizations and of course good patronage from residences particularly if they are well positioned and if they know how to reach out to their target market.

Mosquito control services is one of the many businesses that can easily generate sales with little stress as long as you are well positioned and equipped to carry out the services. We are building a standard mosquito control business with variety of services which is why we have decided to subject our business idea (company) to SWOT Analysis.

Ordinarily we can successfully run a normal mosquito control business without going through the required protocol of setting up a new business, but because of the kind of mosquito control business we want to establish, we don’t have any option other than to follow due process.

We hired the services of Mr. Luke Shannon, an expert HR and Business consultant with bias in startups to help us conduct SWOT analysis for our company and he did a pretty job for us. Here is a of the result we got from the SWOT analysis that was conducted on behalf of Papa Sam Mosquito Control Services, Inc., Dallas-Fort Worth – Texas;

  • Strength:

Papa Sam Mosquito Control Services, Inc. is centrally located in a densely populated residential estate and farming community in Dallas-Fort Worth – Texas; our location is in fact one of our major strength. We have state of the art mosquito cum pest control equipment and tools and we are also one of the very few mosquito control services in the whole of Dallas-Fort Worth that offers a wide range of services.

Another strength that counts for us is the power of our team; our workforce and management. We have a team that are considered experts in the pest control services industry, a team of hardworking and dedicated individuals.

  • Weakness:

Papa Sam Mosquito Control Services, Inc. is a new business which is owned by an individual (family), and we may not have the financial muscle to sustain the kind of publicity we want to give our business. As a new business, we are also quite aware that it will take time for us to build trust with our clients and win corporate clients who are usually heavy spenders.

  • Opportunities:

We are centrally located in one of the busiest areas in Dallas-Fort Worth – Texas and we are open to all the available opportunities that the city has to offer. Our business concept also positioned us to be a one stop shop in the mosquito control business.

The truth is that there are no standard mosquito cum pest control services within the area where ours is going to be located; the closest mosquito control services company to our proposed location is about 6 miles away. In a nutshell, we do not have any direct competition within our target market area.

  • Threat:

Some of the threats that are likely going to confront Papa Sam Mosquito Control Services, is unfavorable government policies, seasonal fluctuations, demographic/social factors, downturn in the economy which is likely going to affect consumers spending and of course emergence of new competitors within the same location where ours is located.


  • Market Trends

If you are keeping tabs with the mosquito cum pest control industry, you will agree that state and local government agencies play a critical role in protecting public health from mosquito-borne diseases.

As a matter of fact, they serve on the front-line, providing information through their outreach programs to the medical and environmental surveillance networks that first identify possible outbreaks. They also manage the mosquito control programs that carry out prevention, public education and vector population management.

Another notable trend in the mosquito cum pest control industry is that most companies, in a bid to survive the recent global economic meltdown include additional services to their core service offerings. Some companies include building maintenance services, selling of chemicals and pest control accessories, lawn care services, and even pest control consultancy and advisory services within the same premises if they have enough space.

It is much easier for mosquito control services companies to increase their revenues by diversifying as against increasing the scope of their market.
