Our technicians are trained mosquito control experts dedicated to one thing: getting rid of mosquitoes so you can enjoy being outside again. Outfitted with the latest gear and backed by the coordination of a top-notch support staff, our technicians in the field get the job done swiftly and thoroughly, leaving a noticeable absence of biting insects in their wake.

Steve established his own lawn care business while still in junior high school. He took pride in maintaining clients’ yards, all while continuing to attend classes. After slow but steady growth, Steve sold his mowing & landscaping portion of the business to focus on lawn treatments. In 2014, Steve added a mosquito control franchise to his already growing lawn care business. Steve bought the Mosquito Joe franchise for one very simple reason – he hates mosquitoes. Both businesses have continued to thrive, and he has had to relocate to “bigger and better” twice in the last two years. He is a firm believer in top notch customer service, and to glorify God in all that we do. He attributes his success to hard work, and God’s blessings. Steve is married with two kids, and makes sure to have quality family time despite his full schedule.
Dee Lavery, Office Manager
When you call Mosquito Joe of East Memphis, you are likely to hear the pleasant voice of Dee Lavery. Dee knows our services inside and out and she takes pride in working to determine the best mosquito control solution for you and your home or business. She will be here for you and do everything possible to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with our service.
Dee is married with 4 adult children and 3 glorious grandchildren (she’s a little biased). Dee was born in El Paso, TX and as an Air Force brat she has lived in numerous places, including Japan and Canada. She joined the Air Force herself, and served 4 years, 3 of which were at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey. Dee loves to travel, and gets more than just a little stir crazy when unable to do so! She volunteers with a local chapter of the Knights of Columbus at Memphis Tiger football games, and is also a licensed vocational nurse. For the past two years, she has been the office manager for both Mosquito Joe, and Southern Lawn & Pest. The 2017 season will change for her to focus solely on Mosquito Joe. This change will have her more involved in marketing, as well supervision.
Favorite Food: Enchiladas, or Souvlakie Favorite Music: Classic Rock, but loves to listen to live Blues Favorite Movie: The Cheap Detective Favorite Sport: Dee is not a sports fan, due largely to the fact that she is the world’s biggest klutz so was never able to participate
