Finding Hosts

Fleas' long legs can jump over 12 inches onto their human or animal hosts. A tick will wait on a blade of grass or the end of a leaf with its legs outstretched and will grab on as the host walks by.

Carry Disease

Ticks can pick up diseases with the blood they ingest. When they feed on other hosts, they leave behind a small amount of saliva containing the bacteria that transmit the disease to others.

Consume Blood

Fleas will find and make a home on an animal and feed frequently on small amounts of their blood. Ticks, however, will attach to them for a few hours to a few days and feed continuously. 

Infestations

A flea can lay up to 50 eggs each day, making the flea population grow quickly. Treating a flea infestation involves eliminating the pests in your environment at every life stage, and killing the adult fleas on your pet.

Treat Pets

Pets should be treated by your vet on the day of treatment. Remove pets and people from the premises and do not come back to the home until the treatment has dried. Usually 3-4 hours.

Lawn Maintenance

The lawn should be mowed and watered before treatment. All toys, food & water bowls, and other items should be picked up and removed from the yard. Stay off grass for 3-4 hours after treatment. 

Enjoy being outdoors again.

These small pests are a threat to both you and your pets because they attach firmly and feed very slowly. This method makes them the most efficient carriers of diseases, such as Lyme disease. People with weak immune systems, elders, horses, dogs, and livestock can all be especially impacted.

And while wearing full-coverage clothing may help keep them off of you, it’s likely not a very comfortable option in the hot summer heat when flea & tick activity is at its highest.
