It is so important to treat and fortify your home against pests and parasites on a regular basis. It’s so important to treat your pets and home quickly and effectively when you know you are experiencing an infestation. Here’s a handy list of common mistakes you need to avoid when you protect your home and pets against pests. 
• Don’t use human pest repellent on a pet – insect sprays made for people contain harmful chemical substances to pets, which can cause neurological damage and even poison them. 
• Always treat your pet and home for pests – keep a strict pest control regimen in your home, especially if you have pets. Monthly flea treatments and regular vacuuming are always a good place to start. 
• Don’t over or under treat your home – if you discover pests in your home, get it treated immediately by a professional pet control expert. DIY pest control methods can be ineffective, and dangerous when not done properly. 
• Talk to the experts – consult a pest control company for advice on your infestation problem. If your pet has parasites, talk to your vet to get the best treatment possible. 
• Indoors may not be safe – if you’ve noticed a pest problem outside, such as rats or ant nests, don’t think that the inside of your house will be safe to. A pest can enter your home in seconds, and will do so to get out of the cold weather. 
• Treat pet beds and soft furnishings – always treat every item of furniture you think the pest could have come into contact with. Treating your entire home is always the most effective way. 
• Holistic methods may not always work – we all like to be green, and use pest control techniques that are harmless to the environment and our family, but these methods may not always work against a serious infestation. 
• Just because you can’t see the problem, doesn’t mean it’s not there – keep up your regular pest control routine, even if you aren’t experiencing a pest control problem currently. 
• Don’t let the infestation get too bad before treating it – a small infestation is cheaper and easier to handle than a large one, so as soon as you notice it get it treated. 
• Use different pest control methods for different pests – no two species are the same, and each type of pest has its own specific method of control and extermination.
