The Mosquito Joe model works for owner-operator, semi-absentee owner and investors alike. Some owners fill the Designated Manager role to include Scheduling, Managing Techs, Sales and Customer Service. Others delegate those responsibilities to someone else while they serve as the Technician. Typical week is Monday through Friday, daylight hours, with Saturday as rain back-up day. Sunday is almost never a workday. Few employees are needed to run the business and often done with other full time employees seeking extra hours (example: EMTs, firemen, etc.).
