Flies and Fleas and Ticks, Oh My!

Flea and tick control with cute dog after bath

Summer is back and so are the insects! These creepy crawlers can be very annoying not only to us, but to our pets as well. Left untreated, these problematic parasites can cause serious health issues. For the next several weeks, we’ll be posting tips on the prevention and treatment of some of the common pests that affect our pets, livestock, and living areas.

It’s not just fleas and ticks:

  • Flies
  • Mosquitos
  • Worms
  • Ants
  • Carpenter Bees

In addition to insects, there are pests of the furry variety too:

  • Mice/Rats
  • Squirrels
  • Moles/Voles

The animals in our care would really appreciate your help in dealing with these pests. Here’s a funny video of a dog that gets quite riled at the mere mention of fleas!
