Backyard Bug Control Shares Helpful Tips On Avoiding Stink Bug Infestations

August 22, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Great Falls, Virginia based Backyard Bug Control recently published a new blog entry discussing stink bugs, how they came to the US, and whether or not they can be harmful to an individual's health. The company also shared a few tips explaining how members of the community may deal with infestations of these bugs in a house. More information on this topic can be found on the company's website, which can be accessed here:

While stink bugs are mostly harmless and present nothing more than a mild annoyance to a household rather than a serious health threat, it does not often take long before before they are deemed unwelcome and homeowners seek measures to get rid of them. Backyard Bug Patrol states that the problem is that most homeowners do not know what initially attracted the stink bugs to their property, which leaves them without any indication of how they may go about getting rid of an infestation. Similarly, they also do not know how they may prevent another infestation in the future.

This was the main motivation behind the company's most recent blog entry, as they state that it is best to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to bug infestations. In short, it is far better to avoid taking actions that attract such pests to a property rather than hoping to get rid of them once an infestation has already taken hold. This is due to the fact that homeowners do not require a professional’s expertise to keep stink bugs off their property—but such help is often required when dealing with a serious infestation case.

Backyard Bug Patrol explains that, while the stink bug first appeared in the state of Pennsylvania, they have since spread to at least 44 other states. Despite being more prevalent in certain areas over others, they are naturally drawn towards areas where there are plenty of crops that they can feast on. This is also what attracts them to homes, as they seek the fruits and vegetables that lie within a house's walls, or perhaps in an improvised greenhouse.

Due to this, the company advises the community to keep their goods sealed and, in the case of greenhouse areas, to have the area be sprayed by an expert. Backyard Bug Patrol asserts that these are the two most important measures a would-be stink bug victim could take, since it is much more difficult to destabilize and eradicate an infestation once stink bugs find a source of food and an area in which they can lay their eggs. The problem is compounded by the fact that such circumstances allow stink bugs to reproduce and grow at a rate that outstrips the ability of a non-professional to address. More information on the insects’ habits and behaviors can be found on the company's blog here:

However, while dealing with an infestation can be a nightmare to inexperienced individuals, an expert’s help can prove an invaluable resource. Backyard Bug Patrol has helped thousands of residents within the Great Falls area get rid of these annoying pests, and they currently provide a durable solution that will keep the insects away from the property for the foreseeable future, even getting rid of any signs that may have shown they were there in the first place.

Backyard Bug Patrol has received nothing but support and appreciation from the community, who have reached out through multiple review platforms to share their experiences with the company. One of their most recent customer reviews says, "We contacted Backyard Bug Patrol with a serious case of stink bug infestation. They were raiding our house day and night, and the smell was unbearable. Thankfully, they quickly dispatched a team and sprayed our house against these pests the very same day. Within a couple of days, they were all dead, and no sign of new larvae was to be seen anywhere. Highly recommended."

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Feb 18, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Feb 18, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...
