When you have pets, you worry about the safety of pest control. After all, if insecticides can exterminate and prevent pests, it seems reasonable that they could also hurt your pets. The solution to this problem is to go for pet friendly pest control service.
Custom Pest Control
While it is true that the chemicals used in some pesticides can be harmful to pets, at Flick we use a variety of different pet-safe pesticides to accomplish your pest control goals. We start out by assessing your household. We find out the information we need to develop your pest control plan.
- What pests do you have?
- Which pests are prevalent in your area?
- What type of pets do you have?
- Do you have any infants or small children?
- Do you have any people in your home with special healthcare needs?
- What size are your pets?
Once we have that information, we develop a pest friendly pest control system that is custom-tailored to your home. We create something that is safe for all of the pets and people in your home. If you have a persistent pest issue that may require something stronger or higher doses of insecticides, then we work with you to safely schedule those treatments.
Importance of Pest Control
Some people think that since some pesticides can be harmful, they should just skip pest control and take their chances. However, part of being a responsible pet owner is pest control. While insecticides can cause potential health issues if misused, pests pose a far greater risk to the health of your pets and your families.
Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes can all carry very dangerous diseases. These diseases can impact your pets. Pets can also serve as transporters, bringing these insects into your home, where they can spread disease to you.
Some health conditions caused by insects include:
- Flea dermatitis
- Rickettsial infections
- Q fever
- Spotted fever
- Mammalian meat allergies
- Allergic reactions
- And more
A comprehensive, safe pest prevention program is the best way to keep you, your family, and your pets safe from these diseases. So, we work with our customers to design those programs. They look different in each household. In addition, depending on the type of pets that you have and your lifestyle, we may recommend working with other professionals, such as your veterinarian, to ensure that you have total pest protection. For example, we can protect your household and yard, but if you take your dogs hiking, you need to give them a flea and tick preventative that can keep them safe away from home.
Contact Flick today to safely get started protecting your household from these tiny, but dangerous, pests.
