Along with gorgeous sunny days and more time outside comes bug bites. Rather than staying inside all summer long, there are other options that can help you protect your yard, yourself, and your loved ones from dealing with mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas that cause itching and discomfort. You should be able to enjoy a day of fun out on your lawn without having to worry about being bitten.
The Dangers of Mosquitos, Ticks, and Fleas
Pests can be dangerous carriers of diseases that are harmful to humans and pets. They can cause a range of health issues, from minor skin irritation to serious illnesses such as Lyme disease, West Nile virus, and Zika virus.
Mosquitoes, perhaps the most well-known, are notorious for spreading various diseases. Mosquitoes can also transmit heartworms to dogs and cats, leading to health problems if not treated. Ticks, another common pest found in many parts of the world, are tiny creatures that can carry a range of diseases, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Ehrlichiosis. Fleas are best known for their annoying habit of biting humans and pets, but they too can spread disease. In particular, fleas can transmit the bacteria that causes cat scratch fever and potentially transmit tapeworms to pets.
