Terminix acquires Mr. Mister Mosquito Control


February 9, 2022


Memphis, Tenn.-based Terminix acquired Mr. Mister Mosquito Control, which services 33 cities in North Georgia with an 85 percent customer retention rate. The deal is thought to help broaden Terminix’s mosquito capabilities.

Founded in 2013, Mr. Mister Mosquito Control has provided mosquito control services to residential and commercial customers in Georgia.

Mr. Mister Mosquito Control provides two options for its customers: 21-day-residual mosquito fogging and its automated misting service. Though mosquito season runs just eight months of the year, Mr. Mister Mosquito Control and its over 60 employees work seven days a week with a 24-hour callback rate to ensure the hot, humid months are mosquito-free for its customers.

The company was co-founded by Matt Brill and Ryan Claterbaugh.

Brill is a Georgia native that earned his master’s degree in business administration at Georgia State University. He earned his senior managing director position at a large regional pest company in 2006 until 2013, when he co-founded Mr. Mister Mosquito Control and became its chief sales and marketing officer.

Claterbaugh joined the pest control industry soon before co-founding Mr. Mister Mosquito Control. After graduating from the University of North Texas, he joined one of the first national mosquito franchise companies. Claterbaugh used the lessons and experiences he gained to help bring Mr. Mister to life as its chief operating officer.

Both Brill and Claterbaugh’s passion for the safety for the residents of Georgia is evident in their history. In 2019, they co-founded the Georgia Residential Mosquito Control Association — a non-profit organization aimed to encourage positive public interest in areas where mosquito and other public health pest control is operative.

Mr. Mister Mosquito Control was advised by Paul Giannamore and Franco Villanueva-Meyer of The Potomac Company throughout this transaction.

The transaction closed in 2021; terms were not disclosed.
