Little Known Way to Protect Against Ticks and Fleas
We take the precaution of treating our pets for fleas and ticks. We wear protective clothing and repellents when hiking. Yet experts say we can take an extra step to help protect our family and pets from being attacked by fleas and ticks. The good news is this extra step is easy and does not cost much.
The milder than normal winter has caused Entomologists across the country to predict a big population of fleas and ticks this year. Since fleas and ticks can hideout in your lawn, you can help protect your family and pets by taking a few minutes to spread Ortho Bug-B-Gon MAX Insect Killer granules on your lawn using your trusty Scotts lawn spreader. The good news is that this single treatment not only kills fleas and ticks for up to 3 months, but also knocks out ants, chiggers and 100 other insects, many of which can cause your lawn to thin and turn brown in summer. The final step is to water your lawn after spreading to put the kill in motion.
