5 Ways to Prevent Pests With Your Pets

If you have a family pet, you know that he or she is a huge part of your family. So when protecting your family and home from pests, you can’t ignore the furry members!

As much as we love them, our dogs and cats can often be the source of our pest problems — whether it’s through fleas and ticks on their skin, roaches attracted to their food, or even wildlife being brought into the home. However, it’s possible to take some steps to prevent and eliminate pests so you can protect your whole family (pets included)!

To keep your pets and home pest-free, consider these tips:

  1. Maintain a Tidy Yard: Regularly clean your yard to deter pests. Remove any food, drinks, and trash.
  2. Clean Pet Belongings: Frequently clean your pet’s toys, bed, and food area. Store pet food in sealed containers off the ground.
  3. Inspect Your Pet: Regularly check your pet for fleas, ticks, and mites, especially in warmer seasons.
  4. Monitor Wildlife: Be cautious of your pet bringing wildlife indoors. Plenty of us pet owners have experienced our pets bringing us their “prized catch of the day.” Always check that they’re not bringing anything unwanted inside!
  5. Regular Baths: Bathe your pets routinely to maintain their hygiene and comfort.
