The Problem with Flea and Tick Infestations

Despite their small size, fleas and ticks pose a significant threat. These minuscule invaders attach themselves to pets and humans and feast on their blood, often transmitting dangerous diseases. They enter entirely covertly, too, leading to an extensive spread before they’re even detected. If you notice the presence of fleas and/or ticks in your home, it’s important to act immediately.

How to Identify a Flea or Tick Problem

Fleas and ticks can be a significant concern for homeowners, especially those with pets. Knowing how to spot the signs of fleas and ticks early is key. Observe your pets for excessive scratching and check their fur for tiny dark specks. Look out for tiny, engorged bumps on your pet’s skin or even the pests themselves. In the home, you also might find flea dirt, which looks like small black pepper specks, especially in pet bedding areas. 

How to Prevent a Flea or Tick Infestation

Avoiding fleas and ticks requires consistent effort. Regularly administer vet-recommended treatments to your pets to protect them throughout the year. Indoors, frequently vacuum carpets, rugs, and furniture to suck up any hiding pests and wash pet bedding in hot water weekly. Outdoors, maintain a tidy yard by mowing the lawn and clearing away brush. These habitats can be breeding grounds for fleas and ticks.
