Former C-store owner starts Mosquito Joe franchise

From staff reports

After 19 years of running a convenience store, Joe Schellhaas was ready for a change.

So the former owner of JBS Food Mart in Pipestone, Minn., explored other options that would allow him to spend more time outside.

That led him to Mosquito Joe, a national mosquito-control business. He recently launched his franchise, which includes southern South Dakota and southern Minnesota.

“Mosquito Joe presented the opportunity to spend time in the fresh air and do something I would really enjoy,” he said. “I have started working with families in the Sioux Falls area to help make their outdoor spaces more enjoyable.”

Mosquito Joe’s services include barrier sprays designed to last for weeks, all-nature treatments and sprays for commercial and residential special events.
