Fleas & Ticks Season
Fleas & Ticks on the Rise
With summer in full swing and the rainy season slowing down, it's no surprise that fleas and ticks have been competing for your lawn just as much as your kids and pets. According to MSU associate professor Jean Tsao, it is no surprise that the tick population has increased this year due to a successful spring for common tick & flea host animals.
How Do I Prevent Both?
Trying to differentiate between fleas and ticks can be difficult when treating your lawn; that's why All Green Lawn Care will automatically treat for both! Fleas are known to jump from host to host until they find the perfect one to bring their other flea friends along, as they are wingless insects and are usually harder to see with the naked eye. Meanwhile, ticks are bigger and typically wait to latch on to potential hosts.
Now, these may seem like minuscule nuisances, but fleas and ticks carry and transmit diseases from animals to humans. Some tick-borne diseases to look out for would be; Lyme disease, tularemia, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis, which are common throughout the US. In addition, ticks can expose your pets to infections like; rocky mountain spotted fever, canine anaplasmosis, and canine babesiosis. Fleas, on the other hand, can cause skin issues, flea allergy dermatitis, and transmit tapeworms. In extreme cases, tick and flea bites can cause typhus, characterized by intense red swelling of the bitten area.
