Backyard Bug Patrol Launches Tick Control Service In Columbia Maryland

July 12, 2019 – – Backyard Bug Patrol has announced that they have recently launched their tick control service and mosquito control service in Columbia, Maryland, and neighboring areas. The company has proven itself to be a leader when it comes to tick control and eradication. When a client buys one of their tick control packages, a licensed applicator will go to the home of the client and barrier spray the yard. The sprayed solution not only kills the ticks but it also creates a barrier that prevents other ticks from getting there.

“Our licensed and highly trained technicians at Backyard Bug Patrol will make sure that the children and other family members don’t get Lyme Disease in their own backyard,” says Patrick Durkin, a spokesperson for Backyard Bug Patrol Columbia. He adds, “We take pride in delivering the best possible customer service in the tick and mosquito control industry.”

Ticks like to stay on the edges of shrubs and bushes where then can easily hitch a ride with a passing mammal, allowing them to get transported to where the mammals are located and then feast on their blood. While these are tiny creatures, like the mosquito, they can carry disease-causing bacteria that can have a substantial impact on the health of people who get bitten by them. For example, ticks have been known to carry the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, which is not easy to diagnose. The problem is that untreated Lyme disease can spread to other parts of the body, causing arthritis and various problems with the nervous system.

To control ticks, the licensed applicators from Backyard Bug Patrol barrier spray the yard with a tick killing solution, killing all of the ticks and then leaving a protective barrier that will prevent other ticks from infesting the area. In addition to the spray, they also provide Tick Tunnels, which are biodegradable tubes containing cotton balls that have been soaked with the tick killing solution. The licensed technician from Backyard Bug Patrol will then strategically place the Tick Tunnels in those locations frequented by mice and rodents. The mice or rodents tend to bring the cotton balls home to their nests, where the ticks that have found their way there will get eradicated.

The deer tick is a well-known carrier of the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. However, it should be noted that it is not only the deer that can carry those ticks. Other animals, such as birds and squirrels, can also be used by the deer tick as transport. Meanwhile, it is important that the tick killing solution used by Backyard Bug Patrol is not harmful to other animals. For instance, while the rodents may carry the cotton balls to their lair, they will not be affected by the solution.

Patrick Durkin explains, “When you purchase Tick tunnels as part of your backyard tick control and management plan we provide two treatments. We will place our Tick Tunnels in the spring or summer and once again in the fall. Contact us for more information.” Those who want to learn more information regarding the Columbia location of Backyard Bug Patrol can visit https://www.pressadvantage.com/organization/backyard-bug-patrol-columbia.

Meanwhile, mosquitoes have caused more that a million deaths each year in various parts of the world. In the US, mosquitoes have been found to be responsible for heart worm in dogs, West Nile Virus, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, including some cases of malaria and dengue fever.

Mosquitoes are often found under leaves and other foliage because they like to feed on plant glucose. Thus, the Backyard Bug Patrol applicators spray those parts of the yard, killing mosquitoes on contact with the sprayed solution. This will also provide a barrier coating on the leaves and foliage of the plants, preventing reinfestation of the area.
