Living in suburban northern New Jersey certainly has its pluses. The beautiful wooded areas, lakes and ponds combined with the close proximity to the mountains, the shore and the metropolitan NY area surely makes it unique and a wonderful place to live. But all this beauty and convenience also comes with a few challenges (besides the traffic)...bugs! And in Jersey, we have 'em. Specifically, I am referring to mosquitoes and ticks. And besides being pesky, these biting bugs come with disease!
That's how Backyard Bug Busters got started. I love spending time outdoors with my family when our weather allows - nothing beats getting outside! But I can't tell you how many times we are driven inside by mosquitoes. So annoying to plan an outdoor dinner only to have to move everything inside despite citronella candles, tiki torches and bug zappers.
Ticks and mosquitoes sure can be an annoyance as they buzz and crawl around our backyard. But they are more than a nuisance - they can also transmit illness. Personally, the one that has wreaked havoc in my home is Lyme disease. As we all know, Lyme disease is carried by the dreaded deer tick and my home was no exception. My daughter was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Both of my dogs were diagnosed with Lyme disease. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. These diagnoses came after implementing many of the recommended precautions, like long sleeves and bug spray, to prevent the bites in the first place! I was angry and I wanted my backyard back. So, i did what most moms do, I started to do some research about mosquito and tick control to reduce my family's and pets risk of becoming infected.
After much research and many conversations, I learned about products and practices that significantly reduce mosquitoes and ticks. Through trial and error I found things that worked. I consulted with and was educated by industry experts (nothing beats a mom on a mission!). Along the way, I also learned that I wasn't the only person struggling for a solution to pesky bugs, concerns about disease and wanting to use the backyard again.
After much trial and error, I found a program and products that work. Backyard Bug Busters was born and now I can share with you what I've learned. Here's to the BBQs, the kickball games, the evening swims and the campfires we all enjoy!
