Supplier News

Jennifer Yarto has purchased the company’s South Texas franchise to expand mosquito control in the region.

| March 28, 2013

CARROLLTON, Texas – MosquitoNix, a leader in mosquito control and mosquito misting systems, announced that Jennifer Yarto has purchased its South Texas franchise to expand mosquito control in a region that was among the hardest hit by West Nile virus last year.

MosquitoNix South Texas will protect people from mosquitoes who live across the valley including Corpus Christi, South Padre Island, Laredo, Brownsville and McAllen.  In 2012, one-third of all West Nile virus (WNV) cases in the United States were reported from Texas, 1,739 WNV cases in people, including 76 deaths, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“We have seen a dramatic increase in demand for mosquito control in Texas. Last year’s West Nile virus outbreak was the largest since 2003. That is why speed and expansion of mosquito control coverage is of the essence to protect families from not just annoying bugs but also life threatening mosquito borne illnesses,” said Dan O’Neal, chairman & CEO of FEMO Group Franchise System, MosquitoNix’s parent company. “We are impressed with how quickly Jennifer has moved to provide mosquito control services so that families and businesses across the valley can enjoy the outdoors safely.”
