As the weather warms up across the state of Maryland, many residents seem to be appearing in their yards at the same rate as the daffodils rising through the dirt. One of the most enjoyable aspects of living in coastal Maryland is the fact that we have such splendid nature so close at hand. For many residents, this can be as close as the backyard, especially on properties that border the wetlands. Continue reading
While residents of Howard County should certainly be concerned with keeping their home and property pest free, they are also concerned about safety when it comes to eliminating vermin. With the many wetlands in this region, mosquitoes are not only a major problem, but extermination methods also need to pass a rigorous standard to reduce any possible environmental impacts to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
At BUGOUT, we are also highly concerned with the safety of Howard county residents and their companion animals, regardless of what type of extermination measures are required. For this reason, we also utilize our extensive knowledge of the different species in order to find the solution that will fit everyone’s needs. Continue reading
As the evenings continue to stay lighter and warmer, many residents of Severna Park are beginning to have backyard get-togethers with neighbors and friends. Although the slight chill in the night time air makes it ideal for sitting around a fire or grilling, that slight chill is also masking possible troubles that could arise as it continues to get warmer.
For people who are already spending more time outdoors, this part of the year can be a treat for yard work, since being plagued by constant mosquitoes is not yet a part of the equation.

At BUGOUT, we often find that many Maryland residents adopt the attitude that as long as insects and vermin stay outdoors, then there is nothing to worry about. The problem with this perspective is that it is based on the concept that as long as pests are not seen in the home, then all is well. However, most major infestations that we have dealt with have been situations where insect activity was not immediately apparent, until we dug deeper.
One of our clients had actually contacted us after they had accidentally discovered that their home was infested with ants. Although the customer had never seen any indication of ants in the home prior to contacting us, this individual had been noticing that they were experiencing electrical problems throughout the home. This had apparently been ongoing for several months, and it was only when all outlets in the home started acting up that the homeowner decided to call for help. Continue reading
As it appears that the summer has finally arrived in Pasadena, MD, many residents are dusting off their gardening tools and hosing down their lawn furniture to prepare for the season. However, it should be noted that this time of year is also one that reports the highest amount of spider bites and bee stings for acute care. Although it may be understandable that this will occur as people begin to spend more time outdoors, it is actually an indoor problem that can be the source of this situation. Continue reading
One of the question we hear the most from home owners is: How many treatments will it take before our Insect or Rodent problem is taken care of?
Although we would love to state that one treatment will be effective this is not always the case. One treatment given certain circumstances can do the trick. However, we also advise that re-treatment happen after specified time frames. Continue reading
