Spring has sprung and I don’t think anybody is happier about that than my dog, Jack. The grass is green, flowers are in bloom and outdoor bbq’s are in full effect! Jack and I have been invited to many lovely bbq’s lately which we love mainly because Jack loves hot dogs and I love the outdoors. Recently, however, we attended a backyard bbq which wasn’t so lovely for one reason only- the hosts forgot to pick up their dogs “laid logs” which were all over the yard and appeared to have been deposited for days. It was disgusting – flies loitering about not only on the turds but venturing their way near the BBQ too! At one point I was seriously considering grabbing the nearby plastic grocery bag and picking up the mess myself. I don’t understand why the hosts didn’t realize to thoroughly clean up before their party. Maybe they didn’t have time or they forgot? Or likely it was because they procrastinated for so long they forgot.

For many, picking up Fido feces can be a “breeze”; But for some it can be an incredibly gross production. This is often because of the smell and sight of it especially if you’re used to letting Fido do the daily in the comfort of your backyard. Some people use double bagged poop bags to pick up the deed- while others use technology’s most innovative pooper scoopers on the market. Whatever the case may be, if you are one to put off picking up your own dog’s meadow muffins – to the point that it threatens your reputation of sanitary hospitality – I encourage you get in touch with this awesome new San Diego pet friendly business who makes it their job to pick up your dog’s poop throughout your entire yard. Weird, right? I think genius.

The Poo Exterminators are a San Diego are family business created by Jon and Hannah – two animal lovers and pet parents themselves who were inspired to be a part of the ever growing pet industry which they are passionate about. What makes the Poo Exterminators different from your local pet waste removal company is that not only are their prices incredibly practical but they provide the family friendly feel you want from a local business. While they make it their business to pick up the business of others ( only canines at the moment ) – we can’t deny these two are on the cusp of something promising. In one of the most pet friendly cities in the country, and at a time when the pet industry is currently one of the most profitable, I am optimistic that more and more pet owners will be using the services of the San Diego Poo Exterminators. Contact them for a consultation today. Rates apply based on yard size.

The Dangers of Dog Poop:

It’s worth noting the number one question made about dog poop which may encourage you to pick up you dogs poop sooner than later or better yet call the poo exterminators: “Doesn’t dog poop help fertilize grass?”

Unfortunately, no. It’s actually harmful!

1. Dog poop is NOT a good fertilizer. It’s actually very harmful and toxic to your lawn! High nutrient concentration in dog poop burns and discolors grass, creating unsightly “hot spots”.

2. Even if you don’t live near water, un-scooped poop from your yard is carried by overland water flow and/or is washed into storm drains, ending up in far away streams, rivers and ground water. Dog feces is as high as 3rd on the list of contributors to
contaminated water.

3. Pet waste teams up with E. Coli and other harmful bacteria including fecal coliform bacteria, which causes serious kidney disorders, intestinal illness, cramps and diarrhea in humans. (There are 23 million fecal coliform bacteria in a single gram of pet waste!) Don’t take a chance with your family. Keep your yard clean!

4. Nearly two decades ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified pet waste as a dangerous pollutant in the same category as toxic chemicals and oil.

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms pet waste can spread parasites including hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salmonella. When infected dog poop comes into contact with your lawn, the poop will eventually “disappear”, but the parasite eggs can linger for years! When a human or animal comes into contact with that soil through everyday activities like walking barefoot, gardening or playing, they risk infection from those eggs … even years after the poop is gone.
