When it comes to enjoying time outdoors, pests are a major nuisance. Here in Louisville, we have to worry about being bitten by mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks, as all three are common pests in our region.
Fortunately, there are solutions. Flea and tick pest control can be added to your mosquito control services so that your property is covered for all three pests.
In this article, we’ll discuss the reasons why spraying for ticks and fleas in the yard makes a lot of sense.
One of the key reasons why you might consider flea and tick treatments for your lawn is to prevent the spread of disease. Like mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks are able to carry and transmit various diseases when they bite their host.
Fleas are of particular concern to your beloved furry family members. That’s because fleas attach themselves to pets and then quickly multiply. That can invite an infestation into your home.
While fleas can also bite people, they tend to prefer animals, which puts your pets at risk when spending time in your yard. Fleas typically end up in residential yards by hitching a ride on infested wildlife like mice, rabbits, opossums, and even feral cats.
Once they land in your yard, they’ll be on the hunt for their next blood meal.
Unfortunately, this means your pet can pick up fleas simply by playing in the yard.
This is concerning as fleas can carry and transmit Typhus, Tungiasis, and even the Bubonic Plague (the most well-known flea-transmitted disease). But pets can also be allergic to flea bites, which tend to be itchy and painful whether there is an allergy or not.
Ticks, on the other hand, will bite both pets and people.
Ticks can carry dangerous diseases like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and Ehrlichiosis. It’s also been recently reported that the Lone Star Tick is spreading in our state. A tick bite can also lead to Alpha-Gal Syndrome, which can lead to an allergy to meat.
One of the main reasons to consider spraying for ticks and fleas in the yard is to reduce the worries around these diseases.
Another benefit to investing in professional flea and tick pest control is that it takes the burden off your shoulders.
While it’s true that there are store-bought flea and tick products available, they are not going to be as effective as the treatment used by a trained professional. Applying products correctly (and safely) is the key to success.
When you handle flea and tick control on your own, it also means finding time to apply chemicals to your yard. Plus, you’ll have to be the one dealing with storing any leftover product.
While your yard will be much better protected against these pests, we always recommend that you still follow your veterinarian’s recommendations for any flea and tick control treatments they advise.
Treating your yard is an important layer of protection, but you most likely take your pet to other places (like local parks or trails). You should still follow your vet’s advice on keeping these dangerous pests off your pets.
When you add flea and tick treatments to your mosquito control program, you can rest easier, knowing that you are protecting your family from some of the most troublesome pests.
