The Ways Fleas And Ticks Are Similar

When fleas are discussed, ticks are often brought up during the discussion as well. This is because they tend to have similar habits and behaviors. Fleas and ticks are both considered parasitic pests, as they require the blood of a host to survive. These pests also tend to prefer animal hosts, though they will bite humans when given a chance. In addition, flea bites and tick bites can each cause health concerns. 

Although fleas and ticks are similar in many ways, they're also quite different. Fleas in Tampa are known for their ability to jump long distances and rapidly infest properties, while ticks latch onto a host and won't typically result in the infestation of your home. Protect your Tampa home from all kinds of pests by implementing professional services from EcoTech Pest Control Services today. 

Fleas Are A Health Risk For Both People And Pets

People and pets often experience adverse reactions caused by flea infestations. You itch excessively at bites, have an allergic reaction, or lose sleep when these tiny pests are brought into your home. Your pets may become more distressed as they scratch and bite at the fleas in their fur. Unfortunately, these tiny pests can also spread dangerous diseases that could make you or your pets sick. Tungiasis, tularemia, and murine typhus are just a few of the diseases fleas can transmit to humans.
