Fleas and Ticks
Most states have a reprieve from fleas and ticks as seasons change from warm to cold temperatures. In South Florida, however, where heat and humidity persist year-round, we have to tolerate fleas and ticks year-round, as well. These bloodsuckers like all forms of blood, including that of humans. Nevertheless, they prefer cats and dogs because of the warmth and softness their fur provides. As a result, your pets experience the brunt of these parasites more than you do. For the comfort of your pets (and yourself), it’s important to get rid of the problem before it gets out of control. That’s when our services for pest control in Fort Lauderdale, FL come in handy.

Fleas, Ticks, And Humans
If you have a flea and tick infestation, you can bet you will experience pain and discomfort, too. Furthermore, fleas and ticks are more dangerous than most people realize. They pass bacteria and disease to both animals and people and they lay eggs at an alarming rate – 40 eggs a day. Think about how many fleas and ticks you will find in your bed, linen, carpets, and upholstery if you don’t act quickly to clamp down on the infestation. They won’t destroy your property, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore them.
The main damage fleas and ticks cause is spreading disease. When a flea or tick draws blood from a diseased rodent, raccoon, or another sick animal, they can spread these diseases to people. When left untreated, it can lead to serious health problems.
It is common for you to feel these parasites, but chances are you won’t see them for an extended period, as they burrow deep into the skin. For a while, you may not even know what is causing you so much discomfort. Many people try to prevent fleas by maintaining their yard, daily vacuuming, and house cleaning, and bathing their pets with flea and tick shampoos. While we recommend you continue these strategies, the most effective solution is to contact an exterminator.
