Why can’t fleas and ticks stay away in the great outdoors? Sure, it’s one thing to find them hitching a ride on your clothes when you’re out hiking, but not when you’re relaxing in the backyard!
Fleas and ticks have a clever way of attaching themselves to local critters such as mice, squirrels, raccoons, and even your household pets. Along the way, fleas and ticks can be dropped into your yard or carried into your home by your pets.
Fleas can be cumbersome and irritating to your pets and be a disgusting find in your home, but they’re relatively harmless. Ticks, on the other hand, can cause major health problems to humans, including Lyme disease.
It’s important to note that the state of Pennsylvania has one of the highest rates of Lyme disease, resulting from tick bites. So, needless to say, tick control and prevention in Slatington is gravely important.
There are 100 species of ticks that bite humans in the US, with 25 of them residing in Pennsylvania. The most common species we see are the deer tick, lone star tick, groundhog tick, and American dog tick.
When it comes to pest control, treating fleas and ticks are is not a one-size-fits-all measure — the way you would prevent control spiders or termites is not the same.
Ticks can be difficult to treat, because they’re very adaptive creatures and can be survive being submerged in water for days, so washing your clothes will not kill ticks! The best course of action is to put your clothes in the dryer — the dry heat zaps the moisture from their bodies and kills them.
