Fleas and ticks are an unfortunate part of life as a Texan. The heat in the air makes you and your pets a prime target for these pests during the summer months. Dealing with them outside is one thing, but letting these biters inside of your home is something to avoid at all cost for your family.
If you notice some of these pests jumping around your home, here’s a delve into why fleas and ticks are in your home and how an exterminator can make your house pest free.
What Brought Fleas and Ticks to Your Home?
Essentially, the arrival of fleas and ticks on your property is one big circle of life. Chances are high that if you have these pests in your home, one of your pets brought them in from outside, where they have already laid the eggs and groundwork they need for a major infestation.
The sad part is, that you can’t even blame your pets for attracting them. The food you cook, the smells your home exudes, all attract larger pests like mice, rats, and opossums to your property. These pests carry fleas and ticks, and spread them around for your household furry friends to share with you and your furniture.
Are They a Problem?
So you’ve found signs of fleas and pinched off a few ticks from your pets. Sure a flea and tick treatment will work for a short time, but unless they’re properly dealt with, fleas and ticks will keep spreading and continue attacking your family. Not only will their bites be a nuisance, but they also have the potential to carry some dangerous diseases.
Ticks carry some pretty nasty diseases that justify their extermination from your home. These include:
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
- Lyme Disease
You can do your best to avoid contracting diseases from ticks by regularly vacuuming your house and washing your hands after contact with pets; but really, the only way to guarantee your safety is extermination.
Likewise, fleas also carry diseases that can harm your family. Flea infestations can lead to exposure of:
- Cat Scratch Disease
