Backyard Bug Patrol Receives Yet Another Awesome Testimonial

Backyard Bug Patrol, which services the Maryland and Virginia areas, is no stranger to testimonials from satisfied customers, of course, but the company is extremely pleased to report that it has received yet another awesome endorsement on Yelp of its services. The testimonial by Myra C., Annapolis, MD, can be found at

In it Myra had this to say, “I hate mosquitoes. They cause illness and horrible unbearable skin reactions to our entire family. Backyard patrol is an Awesome company with a great product.
We used a different company in the past and switched because we still experienced breakthrough mosquitoes. I couldn't stand paying for a spray service while still acting as a meal to these nasty bugs. We hired Backyard Patrol and were able to enjoy the backyard over the summer without getting decimated by mosquitoes & ticks. Not sure what formula they use but it works well. A Very reliable service. Emails communications are fantastic! Customer service is awesome, very responsive. After rain, there were breakthrough events but not bad at all and they would show up right after to spray us down. I believe the key is regular and early initiation of service to combat the problem. I don't care if other critters are taken as well, a reduction in fire flies for instance. but we enjoy fire fly watching from one home down. A very small sacrifice IMO for the health and safety of my family. It's worth it to me. Mosquitoes and ticks are frightening vectors for deadly diseases and in these crazy uncertain times of pandemic, I won't risk our well being. If you pay in full you get a good discount. Hire them and take back your yard!”

At this time of the year, many customers like Myra are also very concerned about the problem mosquitoes can cause. In-depth information about the bugs themselves can be found at

People are right to be concerned about the dangers mosquitoes cause. Apart from the very obvious reaction most people have to a mosquito bite, it is potentially much more serious than simple skin irritation. Mosquitoes can carry and transmit West Nile Virus.

As the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on its website, “West Nile virus (WNV) is the leading cause of mosquito-borne disease in the continental United States. It is most commonly spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Cases of WNV occur during mosquito season, which starts in the summer and continues through fall. There are no vaccines to prevent or medications to treat WNV in people.”

Symptoms of WNV can include fever, headache, and fatigue with aches and/or a rash. Similarly, like the flu, it can last a few days or a few weeks. One in 150 West Nile virus infections results in encephalitis or meningitis, and the mortality rate for persons with severe illness is between 3 and15% with individuals older than 75 years at particular risk.

There are, of course, other diseases that mosquitoes can carry. It is a fact that mosquitos are responsible for more human deaths than any other living creature. Obviously, it makes sense to do everything possible to reduce the problem as much as possible.

Backyard Bug Patrol is a recognized expert in the field of controlling mosquito problems. The company's experienced technicians use backpack sprayers to treat a customer's yard. The sprayers look very much like the leaf blowers that lawn maintenance companies use. Backyard Bug patrol's method will kill mosquitoes on contact and will provide an invisible barrier that will last up to three weeks. Repeat sprayings will maximize protection throughout the mosquito season.

Jack Stimmins, a spokesperson for Backyard Bug Patrol, said, “Mosquitoes are a real problem for anyone like Myra who likes to be outside enjoying their yard. We offer our customers some great packages that can help fix this problem and enable them to sit outside without so much worry.”
