Why is Flea & Tick Pest Control important?
- The quality of life for pets is very important for most people. Flea and tick infestations drain pets of blood and energy – even to the point of death if left untreated. Pest control for fleas and ticks can prevent the four-legged members of the family from having to suffer the ordeal of scratching, rashes and pesticide-laden flea baths.
- There are significant dangers associated with parasitic pests such as fleas and ticks. Infectious diseases like the plague and Rocky Mountain Fever are potentially fatal. Lyme disease can be debilitating for people and potentially fatal for dogs. Even a condition known as tick paralysis can occur as a result of a neurotoxin released by the tick as it feeds on its host. Ticks and Fleas thrive in South Florida’s warm tropical climate year-round. For this reason, consider a pest control service as a first line of defense against these potentially deadly pests.
Pest Control & Extermination for Fleas and Ticks
Pest control companies for fleas and ticks in Port St Lucie and Stuart know the challenges of exterminating these pests and an experienced exterminator will have dealt with these flea and tick infestations many times. Due to the complexity and differences in the biology of these two pests, extensive knowledge is essential and experience is necessary.
Martin and Saint Lucie counties, like the rest of South Florida, have long hot and humid summers, with mild brief winters. These subtropical conditions make an ideal environment for fleas and ticks to breed and thrive. It is rarely ever cold enough in South Florida to kill fleas or their eggs. By contrast, high temperatures along with high levels of humidity accelerate the speed at which flea eggs develop. Buying over the counter products and applying them once to a yard will rarely if ever, arrest a developing flea problem. In the case of ticks, they prefer to climb onto trees, bushes, and walls and are less commonly found in lawns. For this reason, a granular application of a pesticide on a lawn will have little or no effect on a tick population, serving only to eliminate money from a home owner’s wallet.
Almost immediately after feeding on a pet or unlucky human being, both of these pests will lay eggs in areas frequented by their food source. These eggs are essentially impenetrable by insecticides and therefore require additional treatments within certain timeframes in order to prevent reinfestation.
Compounding difficulties for pet owners, there have been reports in recent years that some of the more common flea and tick control products for dogs, Advantix, NexGard, Frontline, and Capstar, to name a few, are becoming less effective. Whether or not this is true, or some other factor is at play, coupling a preventative tick and flea product with a pest control service will greatly enhance your ability to control fleas and ticks around your home.
