With the arrival of warm weather, fleas and ticks are becoming more active, but they’re a problem that exists all year. It’s important to stay ahead of them before they lay eggs and multiply. Once the extreme summer temperatures arrive, these pests will head into your home and your problem will multiply from there! Follow a few basic tips to stay ahead of these pests:
- Keep lawns mowed and avoid overwatering. Fleas and ticks prefer a moist environment.
- Clean up any areas where fleas and ticks will hide and lay eggs. Remove debris like lumber piles, bricks and stone.
- Protect your home with a perimeter treatment of pesticide.
- Use cedar mulch in your garden beds, which repels fleas and ticks.
