How To Keep Pests Away From Your Pets

Posted on February 19th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

Pets can add so much joy to your life and really become part of the family. Unfortunately, pets can experience health problems when they are exposed to fleas and ticks. Below are some tips that will help you keep these pests far away from your furry friends.

Bathe & Groom Them

Be sure to bathe your pets with a shampoo that is designed to ward off pests on a regular basis. If your pet has long hair, it is also a good idea to have them professionally groomed. Both of these steps prohibit pests from hiding underneath their long hair. 

Check Them For Fleas & Ticks

Remember to inspect your pet for fleas and ticks once they are done spending time in the great outdoors. After all, it is very commonplace for fleas and ticks to latch onto your pet if they have been playing near wooded or grassy areas. Brushing their fur can help get rid of any unwanted pests. 

Keep Your House Clean

A cluttered home will provide plenty of hiding places for pests and make it that much easier for them to survive. You can prevent this from happening by cleaning your house frequently and keeping clutter to a minimum. That way, it will be easy to spot a pest if they do make it inside.
