Boca Raton Fleas Removal

Fleas are a common pest that irritates both humans and your pets. Although they are very similar to ticks, fleas are more susceptible to bring serious infestation in houses.

Similarities of Fleas and Ticks

As much as we want to cuddle with our pets because of their fur, they could also be hiding nasty bugs: fleas and ticks. They are similar in terms of:

  • Pet’s blood is their source of food.
  • They can transmit diseases to humans and pets.
  • Red irritated skin is the result of their sharp mouthparts piercing through our blood vessels and skin.

What is the difference between the two?

  1. Flea is known to jump from one host to another. They can go from pets to humans, humans to pets, and pets/humans to furniture. Ticks are known to be related to the spider family because of its 6 to 8 legs.
  2. One host only. Ticks can attach to different hosts in their lifespan. From rodents, rabbits, deer, and house pets. Adult fleas can stay on one host until they die.
  3. Weather environment. Both love to stay in warmer environments. But ticks can survive more on colder days than on hot and sunny days.
  4. Infestation on properties. Fleas can survive even without blood because when they fall from their host they can eat debris as a substitute for blood.
  5. Diseases. Skin allergies and tapeworms are carried and distributed by fleas. Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme diseases are caused by infected ticks.
