Meet Dion Tyus, “The Fun Tech.” Dion is one of the newer technicians at Mosquito Joe of North Atlanta, but judging by his enthusiasm you’d never guess it! Even after taking a tumble in a customer’s backyard, Dion got back up with his humor intact.
Learn some fun facts about Dion:
What is your favorite part of the position?
My favorite part of being a Mosquito Joe technician is simply doing my job. I like letting families enjoy the outdoors, without worrying about bugs or pests.
What led you to work for Mosquito Joe?
Kris, The Operations Manager, referred me and I thought it sounded like something I could do.
What is your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline?
Life is short, Stop Scratching. I like it because it’s true, it’s realistic. I need that one on my truck.
What has been your funniest experience while working here?
I was spraying a customer’s lawn. It was a mid-day spray, so I don’t think anyone was home. I slipped onto a hill and fell into a bunch of pine straw in the backyard. I looked around to see if anyone saw, but I don’t think anyone was home, if they did, that’d be pretty embarrassing.
What has been your scariest experience while working here?
A customer had an Ivy Field on the property, and we had to walk through it to spray. I was scared because anything can jump out at you in an ivy field, and I was worried of what I might run into.
