Make Money By Protecting Pets From Mosquitoes

mosquitoYou can make money by helping pet owners control the mosquito population around their home. With the nuisance of mosquito bites and the threat of West Nile Virus, pet owners need help with protecting their pet.

Spring and summer months bring out the fun in family homes across the nation but also bring out little blood suckers whose only desire is to ruin outdoor activities. Mosquitoes are irritating, little insects which feed off their hosts. Family pets are not exempt from the mosquito’s consumption. In the last couple of years, the Center for Disease Control reports West Nile Virus has increased because mosquitoes carry the virus to humans. Mosquitoes also cause another problem, specifically for animals. They cause heartworms in pets. Even though some veterinarian prescribed medicines do help aid in detracting mosquito bites, there are other preventative steps pet owners can do to assist even more. You can make money by helping pet owners keep their homes safe from mosquitoes.

Step One

Do your homework. Learn about mosquito control. Read online websites, such as the Centers for Disease Control, Mosquito.org, and your local government website for recommendations on how to prevent mosquito bites. Read books and visit with veterinarians about West Nile Virus and the animals it affects. Learn how to handle mosquito infestations.

Step Two

Check with your local government about setting up your business. There may be applications to fill out and fees to be paid. Determine what your requirements are for beginning a new business. You may need to be licensed and bonded. Some states require you to register with the state as well.

Step Three

Market yourself. Purchase or create from a home computer, business cards, brochures, and/or a website, these items will help you in obtaining customers. Consider taking adds out in your local newspaper or a commercial on your local television or radio station. If you network with recognizable names in your community, offer your services in exchange for a good recommendation.

Step Four

You services should include a variety of services. Your main goal is to protect pets. Offer an all natural spray to treat the pet’s bedding and environment where the pet lives the most. Offer a monthly yard observation to check for dead infected birds (the cause of the West Nile Virus), pooled water, and tall grass or weeds. You could also offer to replace outdoor bulbs with yellow “bug” lights and screen in pet areas to protect them from the insects. Educate pet owners on what they can do on a regular basis to help their pets. Teach them pets should be indoors at dawn, dusk, and early evening because mosquitoes are most active at this time. Teach them to not leave the water bowl standing for too long, change it often to reduce mosquito eggs. Teach them DEET can cause pets neurological problems.


You can earn money by helping pet owners maintain their home in the prevention of mosquitoes. Offer multiple services and make certain you have educated yourself well so, you can teach others to help pets keep from getting the diseases caused by mosquitoes.
