One female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day! It’s usually more like 20 eggs, but that means that a single female flea can cause a major infestation in not time! If you start with one female flea at maximum egg production, and assuming that half of the eggs are females, in just 60 days you could have more than 20,000 fleas on your hands, this is how a serious infestation can happen before you even realize there is an issue. Fleas are more than just a nuisance. Many people don’t know that fleas can carry parasites, which they then transmit to their hosts. Tapeworms are most commonly transmitted by fleas.
We get it: No one wants to think about ticks. They’re creepy, gross-looking, and spread diseases. Well, that’s exactly why you should start paying attention to them.
In the US, ticks are responsible for spreading potentially life-threatening infectious diseases, some of which can trigger not just chills, nausea, and a fever, but also neurological problems and in some cases, even death. The most infamous of these infections is Lyme disease—according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the United States. (A “vector” is any living thing that can transfer diseases.Ticks can go as long as 200 days without food or water and can live as long as 2 years. On lawns, 82% of deer ticks have been found within 9 feet of the lawns edge; especially areas adjacent to woods, stonewalls, or ornamental plantings.
