Keep Pets Safe from Mosquitoes

Protect Your Furry Friends this Season

Here at Mosquito Hero, our goal is to help keep your family safe from mosquitoes on your property. As animal lovers ourselves, we believe that your pets are no exception – furry friends can just as easily be bitten by pesky mosquitoes as humans can!

 

 

While many pet owners are cognizant of the dangers of insects like fleas and ticks, many overlook mosquitoes when considering the health of their pet in the great outdoors.

Contrary to popular belief, mosquitoes do bite animals like dogs and cats. And, more than just an irritation, these animals can become very sick if bitten by an infected mosquito. Just as humans need to be wary of infected mosquitoes, it is important to know that mosquitoes often carry parasites that can be passed on to dogs and cats as well.

 

 

One common illness that dogs and cats may fall privy to is heartworm disease. Heartworm disease is caused by a parasitic worm called Dirofilaria immitis that matures into an adult and mates inside of the affected animal. This is a very serious disease as it can result in severe lung disease, heart failure, organ damage, and even death.

 

So how can we protect our pets from mosquito bites?

One strategy is to bring your pet outside during off-peak mosquito times. Mosquitoes are most active during the early morning and late afternoon, so it is best to keep your pet inside the home during these times. However, this is not always realistic, especially for dogs with special needs.

Enter Mosquito Hero. Guaranteed to reduce mosquito populations, our mosquito control service provides you and your family from potentially dangerous mosquito bites, leaving you with peace of mind and a safer yard for your pets to enjoy.
