Fleas are parasitic insects that jump. They are most commonly found on household animals, such as dogs and cats. They can survive and reproduce both on and off the host.
Ticks are parasitic arachnids. They have 8 legs as an adult and they do not jump the way fleas do. They latch on to animals and people and gorge themselves on blood before dropping off.
While fleas and ticks are most commonly found on animals, they can and are found on humans as well. Since both fleas and ticks do not have eggs that stick to a surface, often, once they are brought into the house, they will burrow into the carpet and crevices.
Since fleas and ticks are drawn to high temperatures, West Palm Beach is the perfect breeding environment for them. It is important to use preventative care for fleas and ticks on your house hold pets, especially if you have children.
If your pet does come into contact with fleas or ticks, it is very important to treat them as well as your home. Fleas are known to carry disease such as typhus and cat scratch fever. These parasites do not discriminate between pets and humans and will bit either which will possibly pass along these diseases.
Equally as important, ticks are known to carry Lyme disease and tickborne relapsing fever. These are very serious diseases that can lead to long term health problems.
When getting a treatment for fleas and ticks, it is important to make sure that all fleas, ticks and eggs are killed. It is also smart to have the yard treated as well because they can originate outside and find their way inside, where they can threaten the health of the family.
