Fleas and Tick Management

Fleas and ticks are external pests that feed on the blood of both people and animals.

Fleas or Ticks: Similarities
  1. Fleas and ticks both transmit diseases and health issues. Fleas transmit tapeworms, while ticks transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
  2. These insects feed on blood, and in this case, both animals and people are affected.
  3. Both cause an irritating bite, with a red mark left behind.
  4. Pets are affected by these pests, and can cause serious health issues for animals if left untreated.

Both fleas and ticks are considered dangerous to human and pet health because they have the ability to spread serious disease. Fleas transmit parasitic tapeworms and blacklegged deer ticks have been linked to the spread of Lyme disease.

In those who may be allergic to flea and/or tick bites, there is the possibility that red itchy rashes may develop. While not serious, they can certainly be uncomfortable.
In the case of a large flea infestation, animals may become anemic and very weak.
