Pest Problems You Might Encounter When You Have A Pet And How Pest Control Treatments Can Help

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you live with a dog, cat, ferret, or other pet, you know how quickly a flea or other pest problem can arise. When you have pets in the house, it's more important than ever to take preventative measures to keep pests under control. Here are some pest problems you might encounter with your pets and pest control treatments that can help.

Fleas And Ticks Can Hitch A Ride Indoors

Consider giving your pet flea products recommended by a veterinarian so you're sure to give your pet safe and effective treatments. This protects your pet from fleas and ticks and also helps keep the pests out of your house.

Since these pests come in from the outdoors, you may also want your lawn treated. A pest control professional can even treat your home if an infestation indoors gets bad.

Mosquitoes Can Cause Heartworm Disease

If you have a problem with mosquitoes in the summer, think about having your yard treated to keep them under control. A pest professional can spray your yard or set up a mosquito misting system so your yard is safer for your pets and your family. If you reduce the mosquito population outside, you'll have fewer mosquitoes inside too.

Mosquitoes can cause heartworm disease in dogs and cats, so it's important to protect them from bites. Your vet can prescribe a heartworm preventative medication for your pet to take as an added precaution.

Pet Food Attracts Pests

Feeding your pet outdoors can attract nuisance animals to your yard such as raccoons, possums, coyotes, and stray cats. Be sure to bring food indoors at night so you don't end up with a wildlife problem.

Feeding your pets indoors can attract bugs and rodents, so keep dry food sealed in a plastic or metal container. Try not to let wet food sit out or it can attract ants and roaches. Having regular pest control treatments also helps keep pests out of your house.

Rodents And Spiders Could Bite Your Pet

If you have rodents, spiders, or bugs in your house, your dog or cat may chase them or try to catch them. That could result in a bite that gets infected or spreads a disease, so close up all the gaps around your home so pests can't get inside and bother your pets.

When you have scheduled pest control treatments throughout the year, the pest management professional watches for signs of rodent and bug activity and applies treatments around your home to keep your house as pest-free as possible and your pets safe.

The Many Fields of Construction

There's a common misconception that all construction workers and contractors do the same job. On one hand, this is kind of true. Construction workers and contractors all built things. However, most people in this field have a specialty. Some hang drywall. Others paint. Still others know how to pour foundations or install roofs. While some construction workers and contractors move from field to field throughout their careers, others spend their career honing one particular skill. Either approach is fine, from our perspective. What we really care about is the excellent work that these workers do, and that's what we plan to feature on this website.
