GreenLawn by Design’s flea and tick reduction is an affordable addition to our Supreme Lawn Care Package and is well worth the investment to protect your family and pets! While fleas and ticks do not damage lawns or landscapes, they can easily move inside on pets or humans and cause serious skin irritation and transmit dangerous diseases. For this reason, we use insect control as an optional service to help reduce their populations in your lawn.
Flea infestations often come from a pet dog or cat. The pests attach to the animal when it’s outside, and then infest its fur and the places it sleeps indoors. Flea prevention for both the home and yard can be difficult. Without a proactive approach, any pet owner is vulnerable to an infestation. Flea bites may leave the host with numerous swollen, itchy marks. They may cause allergic reactions in some people and can transmit several diseases. Furry pets are the most at risk. Fleas can bite people and pets and can be a big nuisance.
The most serious aspect of a flea infestation is often the time and effort it takes to remove. Dealing with the problem requires treating infected animals, cleaning flea-infested areas, and taking preventative measures to keep the fleas from returning.
Ticks are also problematic since they can carry Lyme Disease or even Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Ticks found on pets or people require cautious and thorough removal. Ticks should be grasped behind the head by tweezers and pulled slowly away from the host’s skin. Crushing the tick may lead to the release of further dangerous fluids. It is important that the mouthparts be completely removed from the wound, as well. Infected areas should be thoroughly washed and disinfected. If there are medical concerns resulting from a tick or flea bite, seek medical attention immediately.
