Did you know that your lawn could be harboring ticks and fleas? It’s not just the pets you have to worry about when it comes to these pests! Mice, deer and other wild animals may drop fleas and ticks off as they cross over your yard. Dogs and cats certainly bring them indoors but you may also carry them indoors on your shoes and clothing.
Fleabites are annoying but not as dangerous to people as say ticks. Of the two, ticks are far more worrisome. In Pennsylvania, we often encounter American dog ticks, lone star ticks and blacklegged ticks. Blacklegged ticks are more commonly called deer ticks and are known carriers of Lyme disease. Lyme disease can be quite serious with symptoms ranging from a bulls eye rash to Bell’s palsy and even arthritis over time.
