Fleas and Ticks
In Singapore, Fleas and ticks rank among the most detested pests. These pests can be most commonly found in homes with pets and are capable of transmitting diseases that may be fatal if left untreated. Their bites are also known to cause severe itching and infections, making them extremely irritating to man. As such, fleas and ticks should be eliminated immediately from your homes before they cause further harm.
Differences between Fleas and Ticks
Both fleas and ticks are often introduced into the household by pets returning from their walks. These pests attach themselves to the fur of these pets thus following your beloved pets into the household. Without proper anti-flea or anti-tick solutions, these pests can easily enter your home through your pets, causing them to be a continuous nuisance to the household.
Fleas can also be ‘inherited’ from an apartment. These pests are capable of remaining dormant while living in carpets and are awakened when a new family occupies the house. As such, it would be wise to wash your carpets regularly with hot water to kill all the fleas and their eggs. You can also use a vacuum cleaner at high power to clean away the fleas and eggs that are attached to the fibres of the fabric.
Unlike fleas, the greatest concern over ticks are the possible diseases that they transmit to pets. These ticks are known for being the root cause of a variety of deadly illnesses in pets such as Tick Paralysis, Canine Babesiosis and Ehrlichiosis, which can lead to a range of symptoms that include vomiting, diarrhoea, nose bleeds, lethargy, anemia, etc. Fleas, on the other hand, are better known for biting humans and pets, leaving extremely itchy bite marks that can take a long time to recover. While they are also capable of causing diseases in humans and pets, the main concern over fleas is the irritation that comes with their bites.
Fleas generally lay their eggs in carpets while ticks lay their eggs in dark corners and crevices. If you suspect that your home has been infested with fleas or ticks, do take your pets to the veterinarian for a thorough checkup and Frontline your pets to get rid of these pests. Also, do wash your carpets with hot water and clear up the clutter in your house regularly to ensure that fleas and ticks are not given the chance to reside in your home. Prevention is the best cure for flea and tick infestations, so getting rid of potential breeding grounds may be the best method for you to get rid of these pests.
Why Hire a Professional Service?
While there may be many solutions available in the market that would allow you to get rid of fleas and ticks, they may not be the most effective methods and may even be costly to implement. Hiring pest control would be your best bet in ensuring that your home is rid of these pests quickly and most effectively. Since fleas and ticks are capable of reproducing undetected, it may be difficult to identify their breeding grounds. These pests may continue to proliferate in your home, making them nearly impossible to get rid of entirely. As such, calling a reliable pest management service would be the wisest thing to do.
