Mosquito Squad, a mosquito and tick control franchise, is opening a Marysville location, which will be owned by Brad Eichelberger and family. Mosquito Squad of Marysville-Manhattan will provide mosquito and tick protection to northeast Kansas. The business address is 1176 Jayhawk Road.

 “We are thrilled to be joining the Mosquito Squad family and introduce the brand to our local community,” Eichelberger said. “The mosquito and tick populations and associated diseases such as West Nile Virus and Lyme disease have grown exponentially in the U.S. over the past several years, and our goal is to educate homeowners in Marysville and the surrounding areas on how to take a proactive approach to mosquito and tick elimination so that they can enjoy outdoor living in comfort.”
