Lawns infested with viruses and parasites need treatment immediately. Puppies are a major factor in bringing parasites into the home. Puppies and dogs that come from shelters and kennels frequently have worms and other kennel borne diseases. Most of the time dogs do not pass germs to people but some diseases and viruses can make people sick. It is best if your dog was treated for a parasite or virus to sanitize the home. It is important to sanitize the yard as well because the germs are passed in the feces.

Step 4
