Can you smell that, dear reader? Springtime is in the air! The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and the world has begun to be reborn again anew! I know we’ve all been cooped up inside all winter along, and most of you are probably about to go crazy to get out of the house. Before you and your faithful furry companion answer the call of adventure and go bounding wild into the great outdoors, know this. Just as your soul has reawakened in the new light, and warmth of Spring, so too has the rest of the natural world begun to wake up from their long sleep.
Where a few months ago there might not have been any animals to be cautious of while outdoors, there are plenty now. I’m talking of course, about BUGS. (gross) Sorry, I’m not a bug person.
Anyway, specifically we’ll be discussing insects that might bite, sting, or otherwise cause harm to you and your dog if you should happen to encounter them while outside.
Bugs to look out for:
I didn’t make this list to scare you, and I do understand that insects serve an important purpose in the natural chain of life, so I don’t want you to come away from reading this with a wholly negative opinion of insects. I don’t like them, but I make most statements about bugs being gross in jest… mostly. Bugs are important and we need them.
But! That doesn’t mean there are not some bad actors in the bunch who have the potential to make you and your dog’s lives much harder. So it’s good to at least be educated. Now you’ve got the facts, and you can be prepared to take the outside world by storm! So go outside and play!
