Weed Man — a network of locally owned and operated lawn care businesses providing fertilization, weed control and integrated pest management services — has added mosquito control to its offerings.
Administered by trained service technicians, Weed Man’s mosquito control service uses specialized equipment to target mosquitoes. The new offering comes with a guarantee to reduce mosquito populations, according to a press release. Weed Man is currently releasing marketing materials for this service, and select franchise locations will be implementing the mosquito control this season.
