The Hidden Dangers of Fleas and Ticks

Beyond Irritation Brings Rapid Reproduction and Serious Hazards 

Fleas and ticks aren’t just irritating – they’re vectors of disease, capable of inflicting serious harm on your loved ones, especially pets. Fleas reproduce astonishingly quickly, with a single female flea laying up to 50 eggs daily. These pests are known carriers of diseases such as Bartonellosis and Typhus, posing critical health risks. Ticks, on the other hand, transmit pathogens responsible for Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, making them a menace to anyone who ventures outdoors.

Don’t let these pests compromise your home’s safety. Call Greenhouse Termite and Pest Control to get rid of fleas and ticks, and keep them out for good.
