Fleas & Ticks Control

About Fleas

Fleas are common external parasites of both dogs and cats. The adults are ravenous blood-feeders. Pets initially become infested when adult fleas occurring indoors or outdoors jump on the animal. With the ability to jump vertically up to about 6 inches, the adults can easily hitch a ride onto a passing dog or cat, or even the shoes and pant legs of a human.


About Ticks

Ticks are small crawling bugs that have eight legs and are related to spiders and mites. Ticks are parasites that feed on the blood of humans and animals in order to survive. They are called vectors (carriers) because they can feed on a Lyme disease-infected animal (such as a mouse), then carry and transmit the Lyme bacterium to the next animal or person they bite.
