Why Everyone Should Be Concerned

About Flea & Tick Infestations

Fleas and ticks do not only pose a serious health risk for pets. They are also a concern for humans. Like animals, ticks and fleas can also bite humans and cause allergic reactions and a variety of health risks. These include allergic reactions, parasite transmission, and viral or bacterial infections. If left unchecked, their bites can lead to hair loss, skin infections, anemia, and increased anxiety.

Health Risks Posed By

Flea and Tick Bites

Allergic Reactions

Flea and tick bites can trigger allergic reactions in both humans and animals. These reactions include intense itching, redness, and skin inflammation in the affected area.

Tick Paralysis

Tick paralysis is a reaction to a neurotoxin found in the saliva of some tick species. It can cause partial paralysis, impaired reflexes, and breathing problems.

Secondary Infections

Flea and tick bites can cause secondary infection due to a parasitic, viral, or bacterial infection they already have. These infections can be life-threatening to both humans and animals. Some examples include tapeworms, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, murine typhus, Lyme disease, rocky mountain spotted fever, and bartonellosis.

Anemia

Fleas feed on blood, which leads to the body lacking red blood cells in extreme cases. On the other hand, ticks transmit diseases like Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountains spotted fever that damages the body’s red blood cells.

Repellents and Pesticides Are Not Enough for

Preventing Flea & Tick-Borne Disease

Insect repellents, pesticides, sprays, and medications are common measures against ticks and fleas. These have limitations in preventing infestations and bites on pets and people.

Some ticks and fleas have developed a natural resistance to certain pesticides. In their cocoons, protective layers prevent chemicals from taking effect. This increases their chances of surviving chemical extermination and continuing their infestation.

The Solution

Integrated Pest Management

Integrated pest management, or IPM, is the ideal solution for the control, prevention, and extermination of fleas and ticks in Memphis. Here’s why.
1

Tailored Approach to Flea & Tick Extermination

Integrated pest management identifies the species of the tick or fleas and the conditions causing the problem. This helps determine the best approach for exterminating ticks or fleas in your area.
2

Target Fleas and Ticks at all Stages of their Life Cycle

Integrated pest management makes use of biological controls, environmental modifications, and chemical treatments. This helps control ticks and fleas at all stages of their life cycle, which results in more effective pest extermination for your Memphis property.
3

Reduced Reliance on Chemicals

Integrated pest management makes full use of other avenues to control and eliminate tick and flea infestations. This allows reduced reliance on chemicals. It is used sparingly in a targeted manner instead of blanket treatments that risk your health, pet, and other organisms.
4

Promotes Awareness

Integrated pest management helps property owners, residents, and tenants become aware of the best practices for controlling and preventing tick and flea infestations. This helps improve and continue the preventive measures implemented.
5

Prevents Infestations More Effectively

Integrated pest management addresses the underlying causes of the existing tick or flea infestation. As a result, fleas and ticks are less likely to return to the property.
