Vancouver Tick Control
Ticks are another common pest that is associated with pet ownership, but ticks are a considerably different problem from fleas. Ticks are generally picked up from brushing against infected plants or grasses in an outdoor location, and they can be a lot harder to get rid of. Ticks are larger, generally found in smaller colonies, and likewise also feed on blood meals.
However, the similarities end there. Whereas fleas simply bite and use their blood-sucking pincers to feed, ticks are considerably worse. These pests actually bury their entire head into the skin of their host, where they can stay for days at a time, feeding constantly on an unending supply of blood. This makes them particularly difficult to get rid of, as simply pulling the tick out usually results in the head tearing off and becoming infected. To make matters worse, ticks are notorious carriers of some pretty serious diseases, including Lyme disease. This makes them a huge threat to your pests, and also a considerable threat to humans as well. Tick bites are a lot easier to discover on the human body, but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous.

Fleas belong to the insect order Siphonaptera. “Siphon” coming from their piercing-sucking mouthparts. These pests are parasitic insects that survive by feeding on the blood of host mammals and birds. Fleas are generally known for their two most infamous qualities: bites that are extremely itchy, and their ability to jump. In fact, fleas are capable of jumping more than 50 times their body length, making them one of the most powerful leapers in the animal kingdom. For perspective, that would be the equivalent of a 7-foot tall basketball player leaping over the length of more than three and a half full basketball courts before completing a slam dunk.
There’s one other common quality with fleas: they are frequently associated with pets, specifically dogs and cats. In most cases, people come into contact with fleas via these pets. Even though your dog or cat might be wearing a flea collar (a collar that emits a scent that wards fleas off), these pests can still nonetheless hitch a ride temporarily and make themselves at home indoors. As Flea populations increase, they will begin to climb onto and feed on human hosts, meaning painful bites and obnoxious itching. Fortunately, Natura service technicians have all the right products and use the right techniques to solve a flea problem.
