Is there anything like the love of a pet to warm our hearts and homes? When we take on the joy of pet ownership, we also take on a host of responsibilities. At Progressive Pest Control we care deeply about our pets, and about yours. Do you know what bugs you should watch out for to protect your pets?
Of course, everyone knows about fleas and ticks. Ticks can carry lyme disease and rocky mountain spotted fever, which can be passed to humans and cause tick paralysis in pets. Fleas are less dangerous unless your pets are allergic, but they’re terribly annoying and difficult to remove! Most people know to use appropriate products on your pets, check them for ticks after walking through wooded areas or tall grass, and remove ticks promptly. But there’s another very important component to keeping pests away from your pets: treating your yard!
Yard treatments won’t just protect you and your pets from fleas and ticks. You’ll also be safer from mosquitos, which can be a carrier of heartworm. Heartworm treatment is expensive and painful, and if untreated, it can kill a pet within just a few months. There’s also cockroaches, ants, wasps, spiders–don’t let your furry companions deal with these bugs on their own!
Exterior treatments are an important part of your pest control process because they expand the defensive barrier beyond your home. Don’t neglect this part! Contact Progressive Pest Control today to set up a service request and protect your whole family, including the four-legged members.
