Can Fleas and Ticks infest my home?

Fleas can infest various areas within your home, including pet bedding, carpets, rugs, furniture, and cracks or crevices in floors and walls. These pests lay eggs and thrive in warm, cozy environments, making pet resting areas such as sofas, chairs, and beds susceptible to infestation. Additionally, outdoor areas where pets spend time, such as yards, patios, and porches, can harbor fleas and ticks, especially in shaded or moist areas. Ticks, on the other hand, tend to hide in tall grass, shrubs, and wooded areas, where they wait for hosts to pass by. Once indoors, ticks may hide in similar areas to fleas, as well as clothing, bedding, and outdoor gear. By understanding these common hiding spots for fleas and ticks, you can effectively target and prevent infestations from spreading throughout your home.

Signs you might need professional Flea & Tick control:

Spotting signs like persistent pet scratching, visible fleas or ticks, red skin irritation, flea dirt, tick sightings, flea bites on humans, or the presence of flea eggs/larvae signals a possible flea and tick issue. Staying vigilant and addressing these signs promptly can help maintain a healthy environment for your pets and family, enhancing your home’s overall well-being.


Life Cycle



Fleas progress through four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Eggs, typically laid by adult female fleas on hosts or in the environment, hatch into larvae within days. These larvae feed on organic matter before cocooning themselves as pupae. After a period of development, adult fleas emerge from the pupal stage, seeking blood meals to reproduce. By grasping each stage of the flea life cycle, our experts can implement targeted control measures to combat infestations and maintain a pest-free environment for you and your family.


Ticks progress through four stages: egg, larva, nymph, and adult. Eggs, laid by adult female ticks, are commonly found in leaf litter or tall grass. Larvae then seek hosts, typically small mammals or birds, to feed on. After feeding, they molt into nymphs and seek another host for another blood meal. Eventually, nymphs molt into adult ticks, which again feed on hosts to reproduce. By learning each stage of the tick lifecycle, our experts can implement targeted control measures to manage infestations and reduce the risk of tick-borne diseases for you and your family.

Ticks like to hunt by hiding on long blades of grass. Keeping your yard well-trimmed will make it much harder for them to find their prey.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, Tick Control is not included in our General Pest Control Plan. Ticks require specialized treatment and prevention methods due to their unique biology and the potential health risks they pose.

Ticks can be dangerous in the USA because they are known vectors for various diseases. These diseases can have severe health implications for both humans and pets. Here are some reasons why ticks are considered dangerous:

     – Lyme Disease: Ticks, particularly the black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis), are responsible for transmitting Lyme disease, which can lead to a range of symptoms, including fever, fatigue, joint pain, and in severe cases, neurological complications.

     – Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever: Another tick-borne disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, can cause fever, rash, and potentially fatal complications if not treated promptly.

     – Ehrlichiosis and Anaplasmosis: Ticks can transmit these bacterial infections, which can cause symptoms like fever, headache, and muscle aches.

     – Babesiosis: Ticks can also transmit Babesia parasites, leading to flu-like symptoms, anemia, and other health issues.


For more information on tick-related diseases in the USA, you can refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website: [CDC Ticks and Diseases](https://www.cdc.gov/ticks/diseases/index.html).

To protect your family and pets from tick-borne diseases, it’s crucial to implement tick prevention strategies, such as:

     – Regular Yard Maintenance: Keep your lawn well-maintained by mowing it regularly and removing leaf litter and tall grass where ticks thrive.

     – Tick Repellents: Use tick repellents for yourself and tick control products for your pets as recommended by your veterinarian.

     – Wear Protective Clothing: When venturing into tick-prone areas, wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and closed-toe shoes to reduce tick exposure.

     – Tick Checks: After spending time outdoors, perform thorough tick checks on yourself, your family members, and your pets to promptly remove any attached ticks.

     – Professional Tick Control: Consider professional tick control services like those offered by Talos Pest Control, which are designed to effectively manage tick populations in your yard.
