Fleas thrive in warm or humid weather and can lay up to 50 eggs each day. Their bites leave nasty sores. Some people develop rashes when bit by fleas. Fleas usually just spread misery to infested households. If conditions are right, they can live up to two years, and their eggs and larvae can hide out in bedding, clothes, and tiny cracks in the house.
Your lawn can harbor a significant number of fleas which can hitch a ride on your pet. One of the first signs your pet has fleas is “flea dirt” – black flea droppings left on your pet’s coat. See your vet for proper treatment. Even if your pet avoids an infestation, he or she could still track the insects into your home.
Your local Feed A Lawn professional can come to your home and apply control treatments designed to reduce ticks around your property. Our tick control services work with you through the three stages of effective tick control:
- Prevention: there isn’t a way to prevent ticks from entering your property except by having the proper treatments in place.
- Control: If you already have a tick problem, our services will help remove them through a range of products and applications.
- Ongoing Tick Maintenance: Our technicians apply additional treatments to stop ticks from coming back again.
Some ticks carry dangerous diseases, like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, but a person who gets bitten by a tick usually won’t feel anything at all. So you want to protect yourself – and your pets – against ticks at all costs. That is where our Feed A Lawn tick control services can help.
