Don’t forget- fleas and ticks love the fall

Dog and Cat at School

It seems like everyone is worried about fleas in the spring and summer. While this is certainly a problem time of year, experience has proven that the fall is actually one of the worst times for fleas. A flea can jump up to 8” high and 12” laterally. All it takes is your beloved Fi Fi to walk by and they have a mobile home. Within 15 minutes of that initial free ride, the fleas begin feeding.

One Response so far.
