Frequently Asked Questions About Fleas & Ticks

What are fleas & ticks?

Fleas and ticks are both parasitic pests that feed off the blood of others to live. Fleas are small insects, typically appearing dark brown to black in color, and they are known for their impressive jumping abilities. Fleas are commonly associated with pets, but you don’t necessarily have to own pets to pick up an infestation of this pest.

Ticks are also small, and this pest is considered an arachnid. Tick bites can be dangerous, and there are many different species of ticks out there with varying colors, patterns, and markings. If you need help with tick identification around Goldsboro, NC, contact Arrest A Pest Exterminators right away.

Are fleas & ticks dangerous?

Fleas and ticks are dangerous pests to infest your property due to the risk that flea and tick bites bring. Both of these parasitic pests transmit serious illnesses; flea bites may result in diseases such as plague and murine typhus, or they may transmit tapeworms, while tick bites may transmit numerous severe diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and tularemia, among many other illnesses.

Additionally, flea and tick infestations are dangerous to any pets on your property. Both of these pests may transmit illnesses to cats and dogs, and severe infestations may result in lethargy or fatalities.

Flea and tick removal is essential to avoid all of these dangers.

Why do I have a flea & tick problem?

Most Goldsboro properties develop flea and tick problems due to these pests being introduced from outside sources, such as rodents or wildlife dropping fleas and ticks around your yard. Proper prevention tactics to keep wildlife off your property will help with this.

Alternatively, flea and tick problems occur when humans or animals that live on your property accidentally bring these pests inside. Because fleas and ticks are so small, they typically go unnoticed until a major problem occurs.

Where will I find fleas & ticks?

Fleas and ticks love to stay hidden, and you will most likely find fleas in animal fur, carpet fibers, overgrown areas, or other fabrics and upholstered areas around the inside of your property. Ticks prefer to stay in overgrown foliage, or they may be found around wood piles and piles of debris.
