4 Ways to Keep Your Pet Pest-Free
As much as you hate fleas, ticks and skunk odour, your pet probably does, too. Help your pets stay clean and pest-free with these easy to follow tips.
Pick a Tick
If you live in a tick-infested area, spot-check your pet for ticks every night before you go to bed (and don’t let the animal accompany you there). Animals get Lyme disease, too, and it’s important to remove ticks promptly. Also, don’t forget to keep a small cup of bleach nearby when you’re de-ticking. Depositing the ticks in a cup as they’re removed will kill them on the spot.
Starve an Ant
During ant season, place a pet’s food dish in the centre of a pie pan filled with water to keep ants out of the food.
