Flea & Tick Activity is Hot

Activity in the area is heating up significantly right now. From Bradenton to Port Charlotte there seems to be a deluge of Flea & Tick Activity. Home remedies have little to no effect on controlling the life cycle of quick reproduction and spreading infestations. Many times home remedies make more of smelly mess than they’re worth.

Flea & Tick Activity Life Cycles

Fleas start out like most pests when an adult female lays eggs. Fleas go through three additional changes. First they become larvae which will feed on organic material deposited near them. This can include pet dander and shed skin from humans and pets. Next, they will barricade themselves in an impenetrable cocoon like mass made from nearby debris and saliva. In this stage, the pupae is transforming into an adult flea. Once finished, it will sit there protected until it senses vibration or smells someone’s breath. It will then pounce on its victim and feed on his blood. Flea & Tick Activity require blood meals to reproduce!

Ticks do not complete this metamorphosis. They hatch as small ticks and gradually grow to full size while molting (shedding their exoskeleton) along the way. A female dog tick can lay as many as 3,000 eggs at a time so it is imperative to have a professional eliminate these pests because if you miss one, you start all over quickly! Knowing where to look can be the difference in whether the problem gets solved.
