Dogs can also be infected with certain forms of mange, which is caused by a larvae or adult mosquito that feeds on the blood of humans and other animals. Although these insects and other pests are most often found within the domestic environment, other insects and animals travel through our streets, parks, and forests and bring with them infectious diseases and infectious pests that we must also control. In order to protect ourselves, our family, our economy, and our health from these devastating pests, it is vital that we use effective pest control products.
