Fleas, Ticks, and Mosquitoes and Mites
Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are capable of causing a wide variety of illnesses and/or diseases, not just to pets but to their human companions as well. They are also a common cause of allergies and skin disease in our pets, as are mites. Ticks alone are the cause of approximately thirty major diseases, and there are also a number of illnesses and life-threatening diseases attributed to mosquitoes.
Unfortunately, many of the treatments designed to repel or eliminate these pests can be just as harmful and annoying as the diseases they cause.
It will require some research on your part to determine the safety of many accepted treatments such as flea, tick, mite, or mosquito remedies. In fact, these pests can be repelled naturally.
