Give your yard and pets freedom from flea-dom.
Most people know the common annoyances of fleas for cats, dogs, and sometimes even humans. Flea bites are itchy, their saliva can be an allergen causing rashes, and they can cause skin problems when your cat or dog scratches incessantly. What many people don’t realize is that fleas actually carry diseases just like mosquitoes and ticks.
Fleas find hosts and those hosts are warm-blooded animals. Naturally, they are usually dogs and cats, but they can also be opossums, rats, and other rodents. According to the ASPCA, since fleas can consume 15 times their own body weight in blood, they can cause anemia and a significant amount of blood loss over time. They can even cause tapeworm.
A female flea can lay 2,000 eggs, and fleas can bite up to 400 times a day so you should have a flea prevention plan in place to keep your home and pets protected. If you have pets, veterinarians recommend a monthly flea and tick preventative given once a month during all seasons. An important supplement to giving that is treating your yard for fleas to keep it bite-free.
