Local resident opens Mosquito Shield franchise

Tom O’Connor, of Beverly, recently opened a new franchise of Mosquito Shield, which serves Beverly, Morgan Park, Mt. Greenwood and several southwest suburbs. Mosquito Shield is a residential and special-event service that uses a proprietary blend of all-natural plant extracts with a small control blend to mask, kill and repel mosquitoes; there is also a 100-percent natural option. O’Connor said he provides the services for customers every 10 to 17 days, or as needed, throughout the season. He will conduct his first spray on May 15. His coverage area also includes Palos Township, Orland Park and Homer Glen. O’Connor is also a broker at Berkshire Hathaway Chicago. For more information, call O’Connor at (708) 428-2999.
