Flea and Tick Control

EcoTek can help you with your flea and tick pest control problem. Cats and dogs are wonderful companions, but sometimes these companions will bring other parasitic creatures into your lives that are not at all welcome. Besides the discomfort that their bites can cause, fleas and ticks can also lead to severe allergies. We want to make sure your pets are free of all fleas and ticks. According to the University of Kentucky, College of Agriculture, fleas account for over “half of all dermatological conditions requiring veterinary assistance.”

Ticks are more commonly a problem for dogs rather than cats, but do not depend on this generality. Check your pets when they come in, especially during spring time when ticks are more active. A tick will appear as a small dot on your pet’s skin, and will look almost like a growth if it has been feeding for some time. Remove the tick carefully, but not with your bare hands; use tweezers.

Ticks  can pose a threat to your health because they can infect their hosts with serious diseases like Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The easiest place for your pet to pick up a tick is as it moves through grass. Once a tick has fed it will drop off and look for somewhere for shelter and to establish an infestation. Unless you are vigilant, this could be your home. Call EcoTek if you want to get rid of your fleas and ticks.

You should think about setting up a regular routine where you check your cat and dog for fleas and ticks. Be sure to check them around the armpits, the base of the tail, and the groin. If your pet is scratching excessively, has skin damage or little black dirt granules in their fur you may need to seriously consider flea and tick pest control. Also, if you have noticed any bites on yourself, especially the ankles, there may be fleas in your carpets and you should definitely call EcoTek to help implement proper flea and tick pest control.
