Time to introduce you to our pet of the week! This is Josie. She’s a 4-month-old long tailed hound mix that currently weighs 25 pounds. She will be a medium-sized dog when fully grown.

How to Help Prevent Pests
Preventing pests from entering your home is one way that pet owners can help keep their pets safe. Below are some preventative steps you can take:
- Regularly check your pet’s food, water and shelter for bugs
- Remove bedding or toys if you see signs of insect activity
- Store pet food in sealed containers
- Fix leaky plumbing and remove areas of standing water
- Seal cracks and crevices to help keep bugs out of your house, including your window frames
- Keep outdoor pets contained in a fenced yard. If they enter an infested area, fleas and ticks can hop on board within seconds
- Keep leaves raked, grass cut and bushes trimmed to reduce tick habitat
- Check your pet regularly for fleas and ticks, especially when they are allowed outside of your yard or other controlled areas
If your pet has been affected by pests, then you should consult with your veterinarian before using any medication or repellent.
How Pest Control Professionals Can Help
Though taking preventative steps can help alleviate pest issues, DIY solutions often fall short of complete control. That’s where pest control professionals can assist, and the professionals at Terminix are here to help. Terminix technicians use pesticides according to the label and do not treat pets at all. However, for efficiency of service and as a precaution, you should always contain your pet and put food and toys away when a technician is treating your home.
When pests like fleas and ticks are prevented and controlled, that’s good for your pets. It creates a better environment for them, and you. Learn more about Terminix pest control today.
