• Ticks and Fleas in Fort Worth & Arlington

  • The fur of dogs and cats provides the perfect environment for fleas and ticks. They feed on your pet’s blood and can cause health problems ranging from allergic reactions to serious tick-borne illnesses. Both fleas and ticks are more common during the warmer months.  Pets can easily pick up fleas when outdoors. Indoor pets are at risk even if they just go out on the patio.

    Female fleas can lay 40 to 50 eggs a day. That can lead to an infestation in a matter of days. That is why it is important that you contact All Dead Termite Co. Quickly to resolve these issues.  We typically treat the inside and back yards of infested homes.

    Signs of Fleas

    • Flea droppings (dark specks) in the fur
    • Flea eggs (white specks) in the fur
    • Excessive licking or scratching
    • Scabs or hot spots on the skin

    How to Safely Remove Ticks

    •  Use gloves or tissue to cover your hands.
    • Grasp the tick with tweezers from the side, by its head, close to the skin.
    • Pull straight up. Don't twist.
    • Don't squeeze (or pop!) the bloated belly.
    • Wash the bite area and your hands. Mouth parts that remain rarely cause serious problems. But if you're worried, call your vet.
