Meet the Mosquito Joe of Metro East IL Team

Shelly Gardner

Shelly Gardner, Office Assistant: Let’s give a warm welcome to Shelly, who is known as Crochet Joe by the Mosquito Joe team! Before joining the Mosquito Joe family, Shelly worked in health care. She has always loved helping serve her community and meeting new people, and that has translated over into her work with Mosquito Joe! Shelly always answers the phone with a smile and a readiness to help whoever is on the other end of the phone. Shelly is a proud mother of seven, and she enjoys talking about the many things they’ve all accomplished individually. When not helping our community figure out ways to make their outside fun again, Shelly can often be found crocheting something creative!

Kevin Highley, Field Operations Manager: Let’s give it up for Kevin (or, as we call him, Joe Mechanic), who joined the Mosquito Joe team in 2019 because of his love of the outdoors! He believes outside is a place meant for fun, and he wants to make sure that fun is extended to you and your families. Kevin says he enjoys working for Mosquito Joe because “this was the perfect opportunity for me to do what I love in the great outdoors!” When he’s not busy making sure your yard is a place your family can enjoy, he can usually be found partaking in his favorite pastime: spending time with his two-year-old daughter.

Kenneth Jones, Pest Treatment Specialist: Kenneth (also known as Joe Pups!) is at it again! Still a Veterinarian Technician at heart, his approach, via Mosquito Joe, is purely for the love of the outdoors and OUR “fur babies.” Kenneth has a few fur babies of his own, Kombo and Kookie, and he’s proud to be out servicing you and your properties to assure yours are just as safe and cared for as his own! He’s a certified Pest Treatment Specialist in two states, Illinois and Georgia, guaranteeing he’s got the experience and know-how you’re looking for in the technician that’s treating your property! He thinks life…it’s worth living right here!

Glenn Banks, Pest Treatment Specialist: Everyone say hello to Glenn Banks, familiar to us as Joe Dreamer! Glenn is 43 years old and married to a woman who he is proud to call his best friend. Glenn absolutely loves football. He played as a child and continued to play until high school. Glenn also really enjoys watching movies and participating in exciting outdoor activities—which is one of the many reasons he’s so happy he can help make your outside fun again!


Jason Jones, Pest Treatment Specialist: jason jones mosquito joe pest treatment specialistOur newest team member, Jason Jones (aka Chef Joe), enjoys cooking to pass the time. He spends most of his days with family and loved ones. He enjoys being outdoors and overall treasures the outdoor life. He loves meeting new people and comes to us with over 2 years of pest control experience and years of customer service as well. He is a natural at striking up a conversation when meeting new people and is always looking for opportunities to advance his knowledge in all things. Every day is a new day to learn for him!

Brianna Kimbro

Brianna Kimbro: Everyone meet Brianna Kimbro, also known as Joe Thrifty. Brianna enjoys spending time with her two daughters, usually doing something fun outside! She also has an 85-pound husky that is probably just as spoiled as her kids. She loves all things thrifty like yard sales, goodwill, and flea markets. When she is not spending time outside, she enjoys taking long trips through Bullseye Playground at Target, reading, and taking care of her many house plants.


Ruby Harrison

Ruby Harrison, Customer Service Representative: Meet Ruby, also known as Aqua Joe. She enjoys the outdoors and loves vacationing near a beach. She is a graduate of the Deaf Studies Program with an Associate’s degree. She is also fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and has a passion for learning new things, experiencing new activities, and family-centered. She tends to be very tidy and organized and loves being a Jack-of-all-trades.


Brandon Gardner

Brandon Gardner: Hey Metro East Community, partner with me, Brandon Gardner (aka Joe Jumpshot), in keeping your backyard protected from mosquitoes, fleas and ticks. If you don’t find me demonstrating my high percentage jump shot, you can find me in many backyards across the region elevating the boom on my blower to kill and repel annoying insects. I am a graduate of Alton High School and always looking for ways to further educate myself, bettering myself, and keeping my family first.
