Fleas and Ticks in Florida: Year-Round Threats for Your Pets and Home 

Florida’s warm, humid climate creates a haven for fleas and ticks, making them a year-round nuisance for both pets and homeowners. These persistent pests can infest your home, yard, and most importantly, your furry companions. Let’s explore the common types of fleas and ticks found in Florida, and how Certified Pest Control can keep your home and pets protected.

Dominant Species in Florida

  • Brown Dog Tick: This tick, also known as the kennel tick, is the most common tick found in Florida. They are aggressive biters and can infest homes through pets.
  • Cat Fleas: While they primarily target cats, cat fleas can also feed on dogs, humans, and other mammals. Their bites cause itchy red bumps and can trigger flea allergy dermatitis in pets.

The Dangers of Fleas and Ticks

Fleas and ticks are more than just a nuisance; they can transmit serious diseases to both pets and humans. Some common illnesses carried by fleas and ticks in Florida include:

  • Lyme disease
  • Ehrlichiosis
