and you could be facing an infestation
that you bring home from the dog
park or a hike.

one of the most preventable threats

using pesticides, but they are the most
effective way to get rid of the problem.
We use animal-safe pest treatments,

your furry friends.
We might ask you to keep your pet
inside until the spray dries, or to
remove your pet’s food
