Flea & Tick Control in San Angelo, Texas
Flea and tick problems aren’t limited to homes with pets anyone can be at risk for bringing these pests into their homes from the outdoors. The most common flea is the cat flea. It feeds on mammals, including dogs, cats, and humans. Unlike most other flea species, the adult cat flea stays on its host and can take up to twenty blood meals each day. When a flea bites a human, a small red spot with a single puncture point develops. Ticks prefer to feed on dogs, but will take a blood meal from other mammals, including humans, when a canine host is not available. Ticks may live for long periods without a blood meal.
First, treat your pets. Second, clean and vacuum your home, removing the bag or canister to an outside receptacle. Hot wash your linens. Clean the yard, remove debris, and keep grass, trees, and bushes trimmed.
