In Arizona, fleas and ticks are pests that we have to pay attention to year-round. With warm weather comes these pesky insects! There are multiple ways that you can try to limit your exposure to them, including keeping your lawn regularly mowed and wearing pants and long sleeves. However, flea and tick treatments are what will truly keep these biting pests at bay. It is best to reach out to a professional pest company to apply these treatments before you try to tackle the issue on your own!
Many areas across the States have a specific time of the year that is considered “flea and tick season.” This is typically in the summer when the weather is much warmer because both fleas and ticks thrive in hot weather. Here in Arizona, our flea and tick “season” lasts year-round because, even in the winter, our weather is hot enough for these pests to thrive. That is why it is so important to stay vigilant when hanging around outdoors at any time of the year.
There are many precautions you can take to limit your exposure to fleas and ticks. Some of these include:
While these are great ways to lessen the chances of getting bit by a flea or a tick, nothing will compare to the effectiveness of using pesticide treatments. Especially here in Arizona where we don’t get a break from them at any time of the year, it is best to spray your property for safety and peace of mind.
Ideally, you’ll want to spray your property for fleas and ticks about every 6 weeks to avoid any lapse in coverage.
While there are products you can buy to try and spray pesticides on your own, it is a much better investment to reach out to your local pest company and schedule a professional treatment. This is because:
