• Oh No, We Have Ticks! What Now?

    If you know you have a flea or tick problem already underway, follow these three steps to get it under control. Be diligent and remember that depending on how widespread the infestation is conquering it completely can take some time. Be sure to review the safety tips on the back of this brochure BEFORE starting!

    Treat your pet.
    Determine which type of product to use on your pet. Many people prefer the convenience and effectiveness of monthly topical squeeze-on products. Traditional treatment options are good too such as dips, shampoos, powders, collars and sprays. Whatever type of product you choose be sure to read and follow the package instructions very carefully.
    Treat the home.
    As a good first step, wash pet bedding, vacuum carpets and treat with household insecticide sprays, powders and foggers. Again, when using any type of pesticide products for your home, be sure to read and follow the package instructions carefully. When vacuuming, be sure to empty the canister or bag immediately and throw out the contents.
    Treat the yard.
    Don’t forget to spray around your yard and treat around the foundation of your home to kill any ticks lurking outside. While the on-pet treatment will probably help repel or kill ticks they pick up outside, you also want to focus on eliminating the population outdoors to end your infestation sooner!
