Dangers of Dog Feces in Your Yard
Having a furry companion as a member the family is wonderful. However, it comes with a cost of daily maintenance involving pet waste removal. Let’s face it that is an unpleasant task. Whether they are large, medium or small, the responsibility of cleaning up dog feces is never a fun prospect.
The Scoop on Poop
Dog feces can be very dangerous and is considered an environmental hazard to people. Many think of it as a good fertilizer for the lawn when it is actually highly toxic and causes unsightly burns and discoloration of the grass. It poses as much danger as insecticides and pesticides. In order to protect your yard, it is important to be sure that the dangerous waste of your furry friend is disposed of in a proper manner. If you don’t, the problem will worsen and will become increasingly difficult to control.
Bacteria and Parasites Could be Deadly
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a single drop of waste on your lawn contains enough coliform bacteria to cause humans to develop serious intestinal illnesses, diarrhea, cramps and even kidney disorders. Coming in contact with it through gardening, walking barefoot or many other means poses a serious health danger. Many neglect to clean up after their pets because they assume the waste will eventually dissipate into the soil. Disposing of waste improperly begins a harmful cycle that is dangerous to the entire family, including your pet. The eggs of hookworms, tapeworms and other parasites linger in soil for many years. The reluctance of many pet owners to dispose of their pet’s waste is the biggest limitation to controlling it.
