Fleas & Ticks

Ticks on the other hand are not frequent visitors but when they do inhabit your place they can become a very troublesome pest.  Ticks are normally brought in by some type of activity where there's a lot of vegetation.  Woods, fields, and gardens are common places where ticks can be found.  Ticks can carry a a variety of diseases and they often aren't noticed on you or your pet until they've completely dug in.   

Why do fleas prey on our pets?

Fleas and ticks prey on our pets for a variety of reasons.  One, they sense their heat and know they're full of blood.  Second, fleas leave their eggs on our pets knowing that when they scratch they'll dislodge them on the furniture, carpet, beds, or other common areas.
