Keeping your family and pets safe from the dangers of fleas and ticks
Now that summer is here and more time is being spent outside in the yard, it is important to take the proper precautions to protect yourself and your pets against fleas and ticks. Without the proper precautions and treatment, your home, lawn and pets can be at risk of a flea and tick infestation. Not only are flea and tick infestations a hassle to control, but they can also be dangerous. The common deer tick, by itself, is a carrier of Lyme disease among other diseases which can have very serious, sometimes severe symptoms. The bacteria from saliva found in a tick infected with Lyme disease can travel into the blood stream and cause a variety of symptoms such as rash, neck pain, headache, fogginess, joint pain and fatigue and can even lead up to organ failure and paralysis. Flea saliva can also cause anemia, dermatitis, hair loss and facilitate the transfer of tapeworms in pets. One of the most important preliminary ways to prevent flea and tick infestations is by protecting your pets first. Treating your pets, lawn and home are the most effective way to control an infestation once one has occurred. Following certain protocol is the best way to keep yourself and your pets safe from the dangers of fleas and ticks. Pestworld.org has listed specific steps for pet owners to take to keep your pets safe and healthy and your lawn and homes free of fleas and ticks (read the article below).
