Ticks and fleas are two of the most common parasitic pests that can wreak havoc on your pets and family.

These tiny creatures feed on blood, and they cannot survive without a host. Small rodents, wildlife, dogs and cats make great hosts because their fur provides shelter, protection, and camouflage from predators while producing a lot of blood for these parasites to feast on.

Both ticks and fleas can bite not only animals but also humans, causing itchy welts and even transmitting diseases. They are commonly found in overgrown shrubs and neglected landscapes where they can easily latch onto unsuspecting victims. Thus, it is important to have effective tick control St Charles residents need in place to protect your loved ones from these pesky pests.

A flea’s life cycle is characterized by transformation. This life is divided into four stages. Fleas begin their life cycle by laying eggs on their host. The flea eggs hatch into larvae that resemble worms after a short period of time. Adult fleas’ digested blood, as well as hair and skin from dead skin, are consumed by the larvae. Because the larvae are commonly located near cracks or gaps in the flooring and in sheltered areas. 

The larvae then create a pupa or a type of cocoon. The pupae attach to carpet or hair fibers, making it difficult for them to be removed by combing or vacuuming. Although the larvae spend only a few weeks at their pupal stage, they can develop into adult fleas. If there is no host nearby, however, it may stay dormant for several weeks until it detects vibration, heat, and pressure from being stepped or rolled onto by an animal.

This is the fourth stage in the life of the flea. The adult fleas seek out blood meals which are necessary for reproduction and egg production. Fleas then can lay as many as 20 eggs per day. This could result in 600 or more eggs per flea. These fleas bite. Adult fleas look small and are hardened, reddish-brown, flattened, and dark-reddish brown. Adult fleas may grow up to 13 inches.
