Should You Be Concerned About Fleas & Ticks Now?

January 12, 2021

Flea and ticks are a potential risk throughout the entire year for the simple reason it is always above 65 F in your house (hopefully). Fleas thrive in temperatures between 65 and 75 F. If you had any issues last summer with fleas there are flea eggs under the skin of your dog right now waiting to hatch. Here are some simple things you can do to protect your pet and your house from another flea infestation. 1) It is good practice to continue your flea and tick prevention program throughout the entire year, especially if your found them last summer on your pet. 2) If you do see fleas at anytime it is good practice to use Capstar or Capguard (Nitenpyram as the active ingredient). Simply administer the capsule as directed and the walking fleas will start falling off dead within 30 minutes. It helps you get in front of the issue and make sure step 1 is up to date. 3) Are you seeing them in your house? There are many products you can apply from powders to sprays to rid your house of fleas. It’s not comfortable nor desirable, which is why steps 1 and 2 are so important. Make sure you have applied steps 1 and 2 if you do see any in your house. Your pets are like little salt shaker of fleas and are spreading them throughout your house. These are some easy and cost effective steps to keep you, your pet and your house in check, even in winter. NOTE: Cats are very sensitive to these products, so only use products on your cat that is approved for your cat.
