Fleas and Ticks are a persistent pest that can make life unbearable for pets and pet owners. Your pet may potentially carry these pests into your home but may also enter the home even if you don’t own a pet. There are many cases where fleas and ticks may attach themselves to your clothing and be brought into your home.
They love pets but will take a bite out of you as well. They feed on blood and are difficult to get rid of as they have four developmental stages.
Buzz Kill Pest Control is ready to attack all four stages of their life with our 2-step service to eliminate these biting pests from your home or yard.
Dangers of Flea and Tick Infestations
Unfortunately, constant itching and gnawing isn’t the only discomfort that fleas and ticks cause to our pets. Fleas and ticks are natural bloodsuckers that pose some serious risks to pets and members of a household they’ve infested.
Some pets are even allergic to fleas and suffer from extreme discomfort and hair loss that leads to dangerous infections.
Other health issues that come with a flea and tick infestation include:
- Tapeworms from chewing at fleas
- Lyme disease
What’s especially scary about your pets holding onto ticks and fleas is the fact that these creatures can easily create painful, small bumps and rashes on human hosts in a home that has been overtaken by these pests.
What Attracts Fleas and Ticks?
Thin, dry skin is the perfect target for fleas and ticks. This is why in some cases, even after a pet has been relieved of the pests, their raw, damaged skin remains open as an invitation for further problems.
Essentially, body warmth, vibrations (blood flow), and carbon dioxide are the three biggest factors to consider when determining what attracts ticks and fleas to a host. Sadly, this makes most living creatures an unavoidable target. That’s why if you notice a flea or tick problem in your home, It’s not going to go away on its own.
Stop the scratching and rely on the experts at Buzz Kill Pest Control for an effective solution.

Before we start work in your home, some steps you can take to ensure our process includes:
- Vacuum all rugs, carpets, furniture and seal and dispose of the vacuum bag or clean the filter outside plus sweep and mop all tile and vinyl floors

However, since these pests are so small, keep in mind that it’s still normal to see some fleas sticking around for a few weeks due to hatching. However, they won’t last because our insecticide will continuously work to finish the job.
