Avoid fleas by keeping mice out of the house

Mice and other unwanted household pests can bring fleas right into your home.

Other animals carry fleas besides dogs and cats, and a house mouse is a great way for a flea to find its way to your pet. For that reason, keeping mice out of your home is important for avoiding any unwanted bugs. 

Family Handyman reported that properly storing food is important for keeping mice out of your home. This includes grass seeds and other household goods that could be eaten by mice. You can stop mice from entering your home by sealing any holes or cracks in your basement or attic, especially when the weather gets cooler. If you know there are already mice in your house, moth balls can deter them from coming out of hiding, and non-lethal traps are a good way to humanely deal with any rodents.

Once the mice are gone, taking care of fleas is the next step. Any pooch that comes across fleas can be treated with Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Flea and Tick Drops for Dogs and Puppies.
