Fleas and ticks can quickly ruin a great time in the backyard. Not only can they cause annoying, itchy bites, but they can spread dangerous illnesses like Lyme disease and West Nile Virus. That’s why Quality All-Care inspects your property and targets breeding grounds to get rid of these pesky creatures. Our flea and tick control will protect you from:
Never underestimate the power of these tiny creatures. While they are small, they can carry harmful and dangerous diseases for both you and your pets.
Ticks may carry Lyme Disease, which often has symptoms that mimic the flu, such as chills fever, joint pain, and fatigue. The bacteria that cause it can attack your major organs, including your heart, liver, and lungs. If left untreated, Lyme disease can lead to problems with your brain and nervous system, heart issues, and or memory and brain fog.
Less common than Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can cause fever, headaches, vomiting, stomach pain, red eyes, and sore muscles. Most people also get a splotchy rash that starts on their ankles or wrists, but if left untreated, RMSF can lead to a more serious illness.
Fleas like to irritate and harass our beloved pets, but they can also carry diseases that affect both your furry friends and us humans. Their fecal matter and saliva can cause allergic reactions in both animals and humans. They may carry tapeworms which can be ingested by cats, dogs, and even infants. Fleas can also carry Murine Typhus, which they obtain by biting infected rats. They then carry this disease onto pets and/or humans that they bite. Symptoms include body aches, fever, and nausea.
You spend countless hours and dollars treating your dogs, cats, and other pets for fleas and ticks, but what about the yard your pets and family spend time in? As the weather warms up, fleas and ticks will awake from their overwintering spots and begin to hatch their eggs. They live in shady areas of your yard, such as under trees, bushes, decks and porches. They are capable of leaping vertically up to seven inches, often traveling the distance of more than a foot, and love to latch onto the skin of your dog or cat. Once they have found their host, otherwise known as your unsuspecting pet, they survive by feeding off their blood. After your pet is encroached with fleas and ticks, they track them into your house. This can become a huge problem for you and your family. Flea and tick control in your outdoor environment is not only crucial to the safety of your family and animals but generally requires the extensive knowledge of a professional lawn care company like Quality All-Care.
