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

It’s the family business, so that’s a big part of it. But beyond that, the opportunity to get outside and be somewhat independent was something I loved the idea of. I really enjoy meeting new people. The best part, though, is helping the customers and making a difference to them and their families in their yards.

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

Hard work!

Do you have a favorite customer story?

I once went to treat a customer and when I walked in the back 5 little puppies ran up to me. I spent quite a bit of time playing with them. Playing with the dogs is a highlight of my day, and I always make sure to have plenty of treats on me.

Fun fact about you?

I’m ambidextrous and play most sports with either hand.

Do you have any hobbies?

I love golf and play any chance I get. I have a +2.7 handicap and have been playing since I was 3 years old.

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

That mosquito hawks, mosquitoes, biting midges, and gnats are all the same. Just because it bites (and mosquito hawks don’t) doesn’t mean it’s a mosquito.

What is a typical day at Mosquito Joe like?

A lot of sweat, walking, and dealing with crazies on the road. But mostly searching and slaying every mosquito I see. Unless of course, I am working on misting systems with Paul.

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

Get rid of as much shade and water in the yard as possible. Removing breeding grounds is the first, and most important step of mosquito control. Don’t just look for the big amounts of water, look for the little stuff as well.
