Keep Your Furry Friends Safe
As pet owners, we love our furry friends and want them to enjoy the great outdoors just as much as we do. Here are some common backyard pests to be aware of and how to keep your pets safe.
Ticks are a common pest in Missouri and can be found in grassy or wooded areas. They can latch onto our pets and transmit diseases. It is important for pet owners to regularly check their pets for ticks, especially after spending time outdoors. There are also preventative measures that can be taken, such as tick collars or tick medication prescribed by a veterinarian.
Mosquitoes are another common backyard pest that can pose a threat to our pets. They can transmit heart-worm disease, a potentially fatal condition for dogs and cats. It is important for pet owners to take preventative measures, such as adding the mosquito protection add-on to your InsectaShield® residential service package so you don’t have to worry about smelly sprays or candles to enjoy an evening in your backyard with your pets.
Fleas are a nuisance for both pets and their owners. They can cause itching and discomfort, and can also transmit diseases such as tapeworms. It is important for pet owners to regularly check their pets for fleas and take preventative measures with proper medication prescribed by a veterinarian.
As pet owners, it is important for us to be aware of the potential risks that backyard pests can pose to our furry friends. Protect your pets by using preventative measures such as contacting Bug Zero about backyard suppression pest control services.
