To deal with ticks and mosquitoes, the company offers its Barrier Spray programs. These are effective on mosquitoes and ticks because these insects are often found in the yard in the bushes and shrubs. Ticks tend to stay on the tips of plants because it is an effective way for them to get transferred to people who happen to pass by when a part of their body touches the plants. The deer tick, which is only as large as the tip of a pen, is a carrier of the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, which causes Lyme disease. The usual symptoms of Lyme disease are headaches, fever, fatigue, and a unique skin rash that is known as erythema migrans. If not treated early, the infection may spread to the heart, joints, and nervous system, and can have serious effects on health. Meanwhile, mosquitoes can carry various kinds of diseases, such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue, West Nile, chikungunya, and Zika fever.
When a customer buys one of their packages, Backyard Bug Patrol licensed applicators will visit the home and the yard and use a spray that will not only get rid of the mosquitoes and ticks but also coat the leaves and bushes that will prevent them from returning.
They also offer a Simply Organic Program that is 100 percent natural and is certified by the US Dept. of Agriculture’s National Organic Program, which ensures that these products comply with consistent and uniform standards. The active ingredient for this program is Cedar Oil or Rosemary Oil. It will kill the mosquitoes and ticks on contact and then put up a protective barrier that repels the pests for up to two weeks.
They also offer the Flower Power Program, which uses a synthetic derivative from the Chrysanthemum flower to kill and repel mosquitoes and ticks for up to three weeks. This is virtually odorless and cures on the foliage in just 30 minutes after application.
Another pest management tool that they provide is the Tick Tunnels, which are biodegradable cardboard containers that have been filled with cotton balls treated with the ingredient used in the Flower Power Program. Mice collect the cotton balls and bring them back to their dens for building their nests. The deer ticks that live with mice in the Spring and Fall get exposed to the cotton balls and are killed.
In business since 2010, Backyard Bug Patrol is committed to offering the best possible customer service for pest control. Director of Operations Pat Durkin and CFO John Mitchell always consider pest control as something that is personal. This is because all of the members of the Mitchell family have suffered from Lyme disease, which is transmitted to humans by ticks from their own backyard. Meanwhile, Pat Durkin himself suffered from the West Nile Virus infection, which is transmitted by mosquitoes, and this proved to be almost fatal for him. Having experienced the serious effects of having mosquitoes and ticks in the backyard, they are very committed to doing their best to get rid of ticks, mosquitoes, and other pests from backyards and homes.
Those who are interested in how to get rid of pests from their home and backyard can visit the Backyard Bug Patrol website or contact them through the phone or via email. They are open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, from Monday to Friday. More information about the company can be obtained by visiting its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BackyardBugPatrol.
