Merrick, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Summer is here, and that means it’s time to soak up the sunshine, whether that means enjoying a hike, swimming in a pool or laying out on the beach. However, warm weather can also mean it’s time for fleas and ticks. The Puppy Store is here to help pet owners protect their dogs from these pesky creatures during the summer months.
It’s almost impossible to completely keep fleas and ticks at bay, but there are steps pet owners can take to minimize the chances of their pets coming into contact with fleas and ticks.
Flea eggs can be deposited into pet owners’ backyards by a number of wild animals, including opossums, coyotes, raccoons, skunks and more. To reduce these flea infestations, limit the access these animals have around the house and yard. Talk to a gardening professional about ways to discourage animal trespassers.
To make landscaping unsuitable for ticks and their hosts, keep the lawn mowed, remove leaf litter accumulations and prune shrubs and trees. For more information about environmental tick treatments, contact a professional pest specialist.
Despite these strategies, fleas and ticks can still make their way into any yard and pets can become exposed. It’s important to continue to take measures to protect them. All dogs and cats should be treated with a flea and tick control product.
When using a flea and tick control product, it’s important to make sure to distribute doses as scheduled. Even one missed dose can leave room for a terrible flea infestation. Be sure to treat all pets now and continue monthly applications throughout the entire year.
