  • What are ticks and fleas?

    Fleas and ticks are two types of parasitic pests that are commonly known by people who have cats and dogs. These pests are often seen in the fur of pets that spend lots of time outside, though they may also be introduced to your property via wild animals and rodents.

    Fleas grow no larger than 1/8 of an inch in length and have a reddish-black body complete with powerful legs for jumping; ticks are around the same size as an apple seed, though they get larger when they are engorged on a blood meal. Tick species vary, and this pest may be seen in colors of brown, black, or grey with differing patterns.

  • Are ticks and fleas dangerous?

    Fleas and ticks are dangerous due to the diseases and parasites they may transmit with their bites. Tick bites are known for giving individuals serious illnesses such as Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, while fleas are known to pass on murine typhus, tapeworms, and heartworm, among other illnesses.

    Flea and tick bites may also cause allergic reactions in certain individuals. Professional flea and tick removal is essential for avoiding these problems.

  • Why do I have a tick and flea problem?

    Fleas and ticks typically find their way to your property on the backs of animals like cats and dogs. However, they may also be dropped off by wild animals like rodents, deer, and birds or picked up by humans as they pass through overgrown areas.

  • Where will I find ticks and fleas?

    When inside, fleas and ticks tend to hide out in the fur of animals, in fabrics and carpeting indoors, or on humans and their clothing. Outdoors, you may commonly encounter fleas and ticks in long grasses, areas of overgrown foliage, or near piles of debris and woodpiles.

    • Clear outdoor areas of long grasses, overgrown foliage, piles of debris, and woodpiles to reduce flea and tick-hiding spots.

    • Address leaks that might lead to humid conditions and pools of excess water that attract fleas and ticks.
