Keep Your Family & Pets Healthy with Organic Insect Control
Fleas, ticks and mosquitos are not just annoyances; they are major health hazards hiding in tiny, sometimes untraceable bodies. These insects feast on mammals, reproducing at astoundingly prolific rates. In most cases, children and/or pets unknowingly bring fleas, ticks or mosquitos indoors after playing in the yard. However, the bigger problem is that the insects usually lay their eggs directly onto their host. The eggs then fall off of the host’s body, quickly leading to infestation of the entire area.
Disturbing Facts About Fleas, Ticks & Mosquitos
- If fleas were humans, they could long jump nearly 1,000 feet based on the proportion of their real-life size to their jumping ability.
- A female flea can consume up to 15 times her body weight in blood daily.
- Within 48 hours of her first meal, a female flea will then lay hundreds of eggs.
- Female fleas lay up to 2,000 eggs in their lifetime.
- Female ticks can lay up to 3,000 eggs in spring.
- Some ticks will expand up to 4 times their size after a meal.
- Ticks have properties in their saliva that make it difficult for mammals to detect when they have been bitten.
