People often treat their pets with so much love and care that they are considered family members. Their health and welfare are uppermost in people’s minds while doing pest control. Here are 10 common mistakes you should avoid if you want to protect your pets or use pet friendly pest control products.
- If mosquitoes trouble your pets, do not spray human pest repellent on them as it contains DEET, harmful to pets.
- Citronella causes respiratory or irritation problems to pets.
- Vaccinations and medications to combat fleas and ticks are the best way. So do not leave them unguarded.
- Don’t over or under-treat your pet. Rather follow the vet’s advice.
- Don’t give pets human medicine without the vet’s approval in advance.
- Indoors is not “safe”: fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes travel and therefore are difficult to get rid of.
- Don’t do “spot treatment” on your pet and forget to treat its favorite “hangout spot”.
- Clear “essential oils” (alternative therapies) with the vet.
- Just because you don’t “see” a problem, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Viruses are transferred from dog to dog and causes serious diseases. Keep pet vaccinations up-to-date and keep a vigilant eye on your pet.
- Don’t let a pest infestation become intolerable and sever before you act. Don’t use cat products on dogs and vice-versa.
