Employee Spotlight: Kyle Luna

18 years in the US Navy before retiring and moving back to Texas. He happened to see a notice board with our job opening on it, and the rest, as they say, is history.

What made you want to work at Mosquito Joe of NW Houston & S Brazos?

I was working at Walmart after the Navy and was ready for something different. When I saw the job listing it appealed to me – being outdoors and independent. I felt like it was something I could do, so I went for it. Now I won’t ever do anything else.

What’s one word to describe your time at Mosquito Joe?


Do you have a favorite customer story?

Lead technician, Kyle Luna, standing in front of Mosquito Joe Van. I have so many it’s almost impossible to pick. There was one time I was treating a customer – I had been treating the yard for 2 years but had never met him. As I was doing my walk around, he arrived home in a rush. He went inside and came back out asking me how I felt about snakes. The nanny had called that there was a snake in the house, and it was in the laundry room. Armed with a hoe and a shovel, we locked ourselves in the laundry room and eventually wrangled it out from under the dryer using my gutter mirror (we use it to check for issues in gutters). The customer (who hated snakes) held his tail down with the shovel while I used the hoe to get his head. It was about 3’ long, and we laid it out in the driveway to take a photo. I joked that from that day on not only were Mosquito Joe but also Snake Joe. It was an interesting way to meet a customer, but it was great to finally meet him despite the circumstances.

Fun fact about you?

I like to write emotional and spiritual thoughts down. I have a multitude of journals around the house I use. It’s cathartic and I really enjoy the process.

Do you have any hobbies?

Drawing and doodling is a hobby of mine. The other is my amazing dog – we go on alot of walks, and he is very special to me.

What are some of the most common misconceptions customers have about mosquitoes?

I hear “baby mosquito” a lot and must explain that there is no such thing – mosquitoes hatch fully grown from larvae. I think alot of people assume that if it flies and bites it must be a mosquito. There are alot more biting insects than a mosquito and we can deal with them – we just need all the information as they are not all the same.

What is a typical day at Mosquito Joe like?

Mosquito Joe of NW Houston and S Brazos Valley Lead Technician, Kyle Luna, treating a yard for mosquitoes. I treat every house as I would treat my own, and I live that every day. I get to meet some great customers and I love providing them with a comfortable and safe place to be outside.

What’s your best piece of advice for someone wanting to control mosquitoes in their yard?

Just take a few moments to do a daily walk-through of your yard, especially after rain. Take care of your property and keep it debris and water-free. It makes all the difference.
