  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) July 23, 2013 - Summer offers pets and their owners a chance to engage in outdoor fun, but that doesn't seem to come without its headaches. Though many pests can pose threats to humans, there are also pests that can be dangerous for our furry friends. Pro Staff Termite and Pest Control advises pet owners that summer is the prime season for fleas and ticks, both of which can pose health risks for your animals, and even you.

    "Many people believe that you have to have pets in order to have fleas and ticks in their house, but this isn't actually true," says Robert Welch, president of Pro Staff Termite and Pest Control. "Fleas and ticks can easily hitch a ride and gain entry into your home through means of hitchhiking. Regardless if you have pets or not, it is recommended that you have you call a pest control professional to evaluate your situation simply because of how quickly fleas can reproduce."

    Fleas will lay hundreds of eggs in its lifetime. Each egg hatches into a larvae and then will spin a cocoon and will mature into an adult in as little as five days depending on the environment. The adult fleas will then feed on your pet, mate, and then lay eggs again. This cycle is repeated until some type of pest control measure has interfered.

    Fleas and ticks may carry diseases like Lyme disease, typhoid fever or tapeworms that can make pets, and even humans, very sick. Fleas feed on the blood of any warm-blooded body, and will infest both household pests and wild animals. They can also transfer tapeworms in pets, which can drain nutrition from your animals. Ticks are commonly carried into homes from dogs and are responsible for most Lyme Disease cases in the United States.

    Pest control treatments for fleas and ticks inside and outside your home, along with pet-specific flea and tick treatments are highly recommended to eliminate the threat of these pests. A custom maintenance program performed by a trained pest control specialist allows preventative products to be applied in specific areas around your home to reduce flea populations.
