Supplier News

Mike Alexander, owner of Organizing Options, has purchased MosquitoNix’s Pittsburgh franchise.

| May 6, 2013

CARROLLTON, Texas – MosquitoNix announced that Mike Alexander, owner of Organizing Options, has purchased its Pittsburgh franchise.  Just in time for summer, MosquitoNix mosquito control will protect families and outdoor enthusiasts from mosquitos and mosquito borne illnesses throughout Pittsburgh and Alleghany County in Southwestern Pennsylvania. In 2012, 50 human cases of West Nile virus were reported in Pennsylvania, including five deaths, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“We have seen a dramatic increase in demand for mosquito control across North America. Last year’s West Nile virus outbreak was the largest since 2003. With summer just around the corner, time is of the essence for MosquitoNix to continue to expand its reach  and protect families from annoying bugs and life threatening mosquito borne illnesses,” said Dan O’Neal, chairman & CEO of FEMO Group Holdings, MosquitoNix’s parent company. “We are impressed with how fast Mike is moving to provide MosquitoNix to his existing customers and all of Greater Pittsburgh so that families and businesses across the Steel City can enjoy the outdoors safely.”

MosquitoNix franchises are exclusive to each market.  Franchise partners get brand affiliation, comprehensive training, and ongoing sales and marketing support.  MosquitoNix discounts (up to 30%) on products and operational efficiencies, allows franchisees to show a greater profit margin and continue to grow their business.  Qualified franchisees can receive up to 50 percent financing of the Initial Franchise Fee (IFF).
