Fleas and Ticks: More Than a Nuisance
If your family includes a dog, cat, or other furry friend, you’re probably on the lookout for the excessive scratching and biting caused by fleas. Pet owners who have dealt with fleas or ticks know that it’s a huge hassle… But what many may not know is that fleas and ticks are not only annoying, they’re also potential carriers of viral and bacterial diseases that can be dangerous for pets and people.
In addition to itchy bites, rashes, swelling, and skin irritation, fleas can carry serious diseases like typhus, the bubonic plague, and lymphoreticulosis, more commonly known as “cat scratch disease.” Ticks are also prolific carriers of disease, able to infect their victims with everything from Lyme disease and tularemia to Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and anaplasmosis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), illnesses from mosquito, tick and flea bites are on the rise across the U.S., causing homeowners to look for new solutions to protect themselves from these serious illnesses.
