Bite-Free Bliss: How to Keep Pests Away from Your Animals

Summer is a time of warmth, outdoor activities, and unfortunately, increased pest activity. Whether you have pets, livestock, or even backyard chickens, keeping pests away from them is crucial for their well-being. Here are some key points to consider from your friends at 911 Relief USA.

Health Risks: Warm weather accelerates the life cycles of many pests, leading to rapid population growth. Ants, mosquitoes, flies, and rodents become more active, seeking food, water, and shelter.  Without proper pest control, these invaders can quickly overrun your facility, causing damage and posing health risks to occupants1.


Common Pests: When the weather warms up more pests are out and about enjoying summer just like we do. For example:

  • Ticks: These blood-sucking parasites can transmit diseases like Lyme disease to both humans and animals.
  • Fleas: Fleas cause itching, discomfort, and can lead to allergic reactions.
  • Flies: Flies can irritate animals and spread diseases.
  • Mosquitoes: Besides being a nuisance, mosquitoes can transmit heartworm disease to dogs and other animals.

Preventive Measures:

  • Regular Grooming: Regularly groom your pets or livestock to check for ticks, fleas, and other pests.
  • Clean Surroundings: Keep animal enclosures clean and remove any standing water (which attracts mosquitoes).
  • Use Pest Control Products: Consult with a veterinarian or pest control professional to choose safe and effective products for your specific animals. Check out our line of Animal Products here.
  • Inspect and Seal: Seal gaps and cracks in buildings to prevent pests from entering. Focus on areas where utilities enter the home or stable
Natural Solutions: Natural repellents like citronella candles, neem oil, or herbal sprays that can help keep pests away without harming animals. Our line of Animal Products are made from natural ingredients. Check them out here and consult with your veterinarian on their safety for your specific animals.

Emergency Preparedness: Sometimes, despite the best preventative efforts, a pest gets the upper hand. Know the signs of pest-related health issues in animals and, if you see signs of distress, don't hesitate to seek professional help. 

Remember, a pest-free environment contributes to the overall health and happiness of your animals.
