Homemade tick repellents are cheap and simple to make and completely effective at keeping your pets tick free. Commercial tick repellents are full of chemicals that can be harmful to your pet and your family. Natural tick repellents are much safer for your pet, and work just as well as their expensive alternatives. Untreated dogs and cats can be tick carriers, and bring disease carrying bugs into the home that could infect the family. Make your own natural tick repellent with a recipe from home & hearth Quality water, quality life When you think about the comfort and safety of your home, water quality should be one of the first things on your mind. Get a water test done to make sure the water your family is drinking is safe and clean. Lindsay Stevens, broker at Stevens Realty Group, suggests getting water tests done about once a year. She says, "Water tests can show any contaminations, nitrates or bacteria in the water. They can show things like sulfur and even can tell you if you need a water softener." Tests can simply be done by getting a test kit from a professional service. Stevens says her company uses Environmental Lab Works, Inc. in Marlboro. "Any home inspector would be able to do these tests for you," she says. "You would just explain your concerns and get test kits. The professionals would run the tests and give you suggestions on what to do next." Low quality water can lead to intestinal sicknesses. Get it checked regulary to keep your family feeling their best. Your Partner in Complete Pet Care 845-227-PAWS VISIT US AT OUR NEW LOCATION 44 Saint Nicholas Rd. in Wappingers Falls!
