Mosquito Control Service
Backyard Bug Patrol of Bethesda
is the leader in professional mosquito control and eradication throughout Bethesda and Montgomery County, Maryland. We make your backyard livable. No more annoying mosquitos buzzing and biting. No itchy welts and scratching. No bug zappers or mosquito swatters. No more Deet laced mosquito repellant that you slather on… Deet is losing its effectiveness anyway. And no potential diseases like West Nile Virus or Eastern Equine Encephalitis or Heartworm in pets.
We take back your yard and can help protect your family and pets from these pests. With the purchase of one of our packages, our licensed applicator will come to your home and barrier spray your yard. Our programs below not only knock mosquitos dead on contact but our backpack sprayers get deep into the foliage in your yard and coat leaves, bushes and grass leaving a protective barrier that repels these pests. With regular backyard sprays you can control mosquitos.

Mosquitos are responsible for more human deaths than any other living creature. Ever year mosquitos cause more than a million deaths worldwide. They are a threat to public health not only all over the planet but especially here in the Metropolitan Washington DC area too. In the US, mosquitos cause West Nile Virus, Heart Worm in dogs and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, not to mention a few cases each year of Malaria and Dengue Fever.
There are over 150 different mosquitos in the US. Most generally stay within 1 to 3 miles of where they were born with the Asian Tiger Mosquito not going more than 300 yards from its birth place. To lay eggs, the female mosquito needs a blood meal. After biting you, she doesn’t actually eat the blood she uses the blood protein to develop her eggs. What mosquitos eat is the the glucose found in plants. So when they aren’t busy sucking your blood, they generally hang out under leaves and other foliage feeding on plants. That’s where we come in.
Backyard Bug Patrol of Bethesda uses backpack sprayers to treat your yard. They look a lot like the leaf blowers that the lawn maintenance guys use. Our spray will kill mosquitos on contact and will put up an invisible barrier that will last up to three weeks.
mosquitos need water to lay their eggs. But it’s interesting to note that the water doesn’t need to be fresh water, they can lay their eggs in salt marshes and brackish pools. One mosquito can be responsible for one billion offspring (assuming they all survive) in one month! So, removal of standing water on your property is crucial and is an important part of preventing mosquitos. It’s always a great idea to implement a prevention program in conjunction with any spray.
Tick Control Service
Ticks like to hang out on the tips of shrubs and bushes waiting for a mammal to come along so they can hitch a ride and have lunch. Did you know that a deer tick the size of the tip of your pen could potentially cause Lyme Disease? My entire family was diagnosed with Lyme Disease a few years back, that’s why we started Backyard Bug Patrol. I don’t take ticks lightly. Backyard Bug Patrol of Bethesda
can help protect your family and pets from these pests.
With the purchase of one of our tick control packages, our licensed applicators will come to your home and barrier spray your yard. Our programs below not only knock these pests dead on contact but our backpack sprayers get deep into the foliage in your yard and coat leaves and bushes leaving a protective barrier that repels these pests.
Our company offers two basic barrier spray services to protect your family from ticks, mosquitos and more.
Tick Tunnels are a must for a complete tick control plan! While Backyard Bug Patrol’s barrier sprays effectively kill ticks on contact and provide invisible protection that lasts up to three weeks, no tick reduction/eradication program is complete without adding Tick Tunnels. These tubes kill deer ticks!
Tick Tunnels are recycled, biodegradable tubes stuffed with cotton balls that have been treated with our tick killing solution. Our licensed tech will strategically place Tick Tunnels that kill deer ticks around your yard in all the locations where mice and other rodents frequent, making every effort to hide them. Sometimes our backyard pest control techs do such a great job hiding them you might not actually be able to see them.
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.
