Why is it bad to leave dog waste in your yard?
Did you know that a single gram of dog waste can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria? This not only causes burns and discoloration to your grass, it also causes cramps, diarrhea, intestinal illness, and serious kidney disorders in humans. Dog waste is one of the most common carriers of disease such as Whipworms, Hookworms, Roundworms, Tapeworms, Parvo, Corona, Giardiasis, Salmonellosis, Cryptosporidiosis, and Campylobacteriosis. "Zoonoses" is the process by which some diseases are spread to humans. If your yard is not treated, eggs of certain roundworms can linger in your yard for years and these eggs can be picked it up by gardening or something as simple as walking barefoot in your yard. Kids are the most susceptible because they play in the yard and get dirt in their mouth and eyes. Dog feces can also pollute waterways. Feces is so toxic that the EPA places it in the same category as oil and mine runoff.
Aside from hurting you directly, dog waste also attracts pests, flies, maggots, millipedes, rats, and plastic worms. Having dog waste in your back yard can increase the likelihood of all of these pests by 10 fold. Dog feces can cost you in the long run on repairs to your lawn equipment due to its highly acidic nature. Of course, dog feces is also unsightly, smelly and will ruin your day if you step in it or track it into your house.
