Backyard Bug Patrol Explains How to Safeguard Homes from Termites

Backyard Bug Patrol, a comprehensive pest control services company based in Great Falls, VA, is pleased to announce that they have recently published a blog post that explains how to safeguard the home from termites. Termites like to chew of wood and other materials with cellulose. A mature termite colony can have as many as two million worker termites, which can really cause a lot of destruction for the wood parts of a home. Aside from the structural damage, termites can also cause bad odor to permeate the home because of the fecal pellets that they produce. This fecal matter can also cause walls to become discolored and to blister. More about this can be gleaned from

John Mitchell, a spokesperson for Backyard Bug Patrol, says, “If you’re searching for a pest control company whose reputation and services are reliable and effective, look no further than Backyard Bug Patrol. Our preventative termite protection package will ensure that any sign of termites around your home will be eliminated. Don’t wait until it’s too late.”

It should be noted while prevention is always better than cure, for those who already have a termite problem, the first thing to do is to confirm it. There are certain signs of termite damage, such as: the appearance of water damage; buckling of walls or ceilings; swarms of termites themselves; mud tunnels on home foundations; and maze-like designs on wooden structures. Sadly, such signs usually indicate that the termite problem has been in progress for quite some time and may have already significantly affected the structural integrity of the home. Homeowners or other property owners need to act fast and contact a professional pest control company if such signs are noticed.

In fact, they have an overall rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars on Google after receiving more than 100 reviews. They have also been receiving 5 star reviews on their Facebook page, which can be accessed at

In one of their recent reviews on Google, Emily R.C. gave them five stars and said, “We’ve used Backyard Bug Patrol for mosquito treatment in our yard for the last five years, and we can’t imagine going through a single month of DC mosquito season without them now. We absolutely love the service and the huge impact it’s made on our yard’s usability throughout even the most mosquito-ridden summer months in Arlington. Yes, we still get bites on occasion, especially right before our next scheduled service, but it’s 1000 times better than it was before. I am an extreme mosquito magnet, and before we started treatment I was consistently covered in horribly itchy bites from early May to late October - often getting 5+ bites within only a few minutes of being outside. Every time. Seriously. Now I only get about 5-10 bites the whole season…”
