We love our furbabies, but so do pests – what are your pets bringing to your lawn?
Unfortunately, this is often the all-too-easy answer to “where the heck did these things come from?” when you notice the fleas and ticks on your pet. It’s hard to decide where to go from that point – do you take the home/remedy/diy path until you just can’t stand it anymore or do you offer your pet chemical/pharmaceutical treatment? Regardless of how you try to make things a little less “buggy”, there are a few ways you can improve the area to make for a less appealing environment to the little annoying bugs that seem to love us.
Fleas – make a regular lawncare schedule that will keep areas from gathering leaves and debris, which essentially just accumulate moisture. It is important to speak with your vet about flea prevention specifically on your pet, but cutting down on neglected parts of your lawn can decrease the amount of fleas that want to live there at all.
Ticks – a tiny, dangerous, disease-carrying insect that is pretty popular here in the Memphis and mid-south area. They’re usually found in more heavily vegetated areas, so be sure to maintain, trim, and treat your shrubs, trees, grass, and bushes. Ticks present a serious health risk for pets and humans alike, carrying diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease.
Mosquitoes – we’ve got a treatment for that! Victory Lawns offers an organic mosquito treatment that creates an unappealing environment for the pests, encouraging them not to be in the designated area. Our treatment works quickly and is effective – call and book your treatment for a special event especially so that your guests remember the fun they had, not how itchy they got!
