How Do Fleas & Ticks Enter Your Property?
While it is often thought that our furry loved ones are the sole transmitters of fleas and ticks, these pests can enter your home in a variety of ways, including on your clothing, belongings, guests, and aboard other pests such as mice or rats.
Not only are bites from these animals itchy, annoying, and sometimes painful, but they can also be potentially dangerous. Fleas have been known to carry diseases such as Typhus and bacterial infections. Ticks are also notorious for carrying Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, and Tularemia. To ensure that you and your loved ones are protected from these pests, we offer indoor and outdoor treatment options—customizing each solution to your specific infestation.
How Can You Keep Fleas & Ticks Away from Your Property?
Unfortunately, fleas and ticks are surprisingly robust, and have been known to hitch a ride on unsuspecting passengers to enter your property, even if it has been treated, so to ensure a truly flea- and tick-free space, we have put together a list of things you can do before and after your treatments.
Ways to make your property less attractive to fleas and ticks include:
- Trim overgrown areas around your property
- Regularly mow your lawn
- Keep your garbage bins tightly closed
- Remove leaf litter and debris from your lawn
- Eliminate standing water and excess moisture from around your property
- Regularly treat your pets for fleas
- Vacuum regularly
- Pay close attention to your pet’s favorite areas while vacuuming
