Dealing with ticks and mosquitoes: Protection and treatment for you and your pets

Preventive Tick and Mosquito Treatments for Pets

Pets can be protected from ticks and mosquitos in several ways, but the most common types of preventatives are baths, collars, and spot treatments. As a preventive measure for dogs against fleas, ticks and heartworm, Simparica Trio offers protection in a chewable formula, which may be a bit easier to convince your dog to eat than other medications.

Reducing Ticks and Mosquitoes in Your Yard

You can reduce the population of ticks and mosquitoes by clearing out dead trees, branches, and stumps, cutting tall grass, and getting rid of standing water on your property. Having trees removed may reduce dampness which can reduce breeding grounds for mosquito larva. If you opt to have trees removed from your property, consider hiring a professional to complete the job.

Staying Safe from Ticks and Mosquitoes

You may be able to prevent ticks from biting your family by wearing long sleeves and pants that are tucked into socks. Ticks cling to clothing and head to hotspots on your body, so be sure to do thorough tick-checks after you have been outside. Learn what ticks look like, as well as the varying types of ticks that are in your area.
