Pest Control and Your Pet: How to Protect Your Pooch

In Florida, where we enjoy warm weather throughout the majority of the year, pests are a continual problem. When considering a professional pest control provider, we oftentimes think only of how to best protect our home and those inside it from problem insects. However, the area around our homes is just as important when considering pest control, especially if pets are part of the family.

Pests such as fleas and ticks are an extreme nuisance to our pets, but also carry potentially harmful diseases that can kill them if not prevented.  Of course, most of us treat our pets with monthly topical treatments to prevent these pests, or we give them a pill to make sure they are protected from diseases such as internal parasites, Lyme disease, and many more.

The best way to protect your pet from insect-carried diseases though, in addition to the above treatments, is by getting rid of the risk of exposure altogether. By treating your yard (in addition to your home) from pests such as fleas and ticks, you are giving your pets the ultimate protection against the above illnesses because they won’t come into contact with the insects in the first place.
