When Life Outpaces The Dog Waste
That being said, we’ve found that more and more homeowners are simply too overworked with life’s daily stresses and demands to adequately handle their dog waste problems. Honestly, we don’t blame you for not having or making the time to dispose of your dog’s poop. Life happens, we get it. We’ve based our business on that undeniable aspect that everyone one of us faces. But ignoring a problem does not solve it. In fact, you’ll learn (the hard way) that pretending you don’t have a dog waste issue will only create more pains for you down the road.
Below we’ll cover the top reasons why homeowners are simply not getting their crap together, in a bag and throwing it in the garbage.
Dog Waste Biodegradation: That’s a Thing, Right?
Well, sort of. You see, while animal waste does in fact decompose over time, that time frame is rather long. And while you assume that your dog waste will convert into soil in no time, the truth is that poop doesn’t just turn into dirt right away. That’s where the problem lays: your dog waste can create a variety of problems if not properly disposed of. There are a myriad of sanitation issues that could potentially harm your yard and even your children if not taken seriously. Left to pile, dog waste would destroy your yard and threaten the water supply long before it composted into anything useful.
Dog Poop, The Story: It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better
Think about it: you have poop rotting away around your home. It’s being affected by the hot sun all day long. It’s got little bugs and critters feeding off it, mating on it, and living in it. Your kids are running around, like a game of mouse trap just waiting to tumble and fumble over your dog’s poop from last week. Maybe that last part is a bit of overkill, but we are seriously trying to get a message across: it’s really gross to just leave your dog waste lying around, assuming the wonders of decomposition will take it far, far away from your life. Nope, you’ve simply created a little play area of pestilence that will rot your yard away and infect your loved ones.
A common mistake homeowners make is counting on the weather to take care of their dog waste problems. Avoiding the much-needed cleanup, folks will wait until the cold months of December, January, and February to bring about the snow they assume will, through some kind of natural phenomena, eradicate the dog waste that has accumulated in their yards. Truth is, it’ll only preserve it.
The snow and ice of a cold winter aren’t magical. Whatever Disney flick you’ve seen or bro-science Facebook post your neighbor shared, we promise you: that just doesn’t work. Why would single digit temperatures and snow clean your yard of dog waste?
Sort of like Captain America coming off the ice, your dog poop will see the glorious sun once again come spring.*¹
The difference is you’ll have to avenge your excrement-ridden yard. If you thought getting rid of fresh dog poop was a chore, wait until you’re stuck cleaning up dozens of soggy turds laying all around. If only a special task force existed for this purpose!
If you had any cute or adventurous ideas for spring gardening or summer planting, forget about it. You’re now cleaning up your dog waste and researching time-consuming or potentially expensive alternatives to bring your yard back to a healthy state.
