Signs of a Flea Infestation

Fleas are stealthy pests that leave behind some telltale signs when they invade. Here’s what to keep an eye out for:
Pet Scratching: Notice your furry friend scratching incessantly? It could be a sign of flea bites. Frequent scratching, biting, or restlessness could indicate they’re suffering from fleas
Flea Dirt: Flea dirt, or feces, appears as tiny, dark specks on your pet’s skin or bedding. When moistened, these specks turn reddish-brown, highlighting the blood content in their waste.
Bites on Humans: Fleas aren’t picky; they’ll happily snack on humans, too! If you or your family members notice small, itchy bites, particularly around ankles or legs, it could be a red flag for a flea infestation.
Household Evidence: Check areas where pets frequent. Fleas often lurk in carpets, pet bedding, and upholstered furniture. Watch for live fleas or their eggs, which resemble tiny white grains.

Types of Ticks in the Vancouver and Portland Metro

Tick infestations are rare indoors; however, they thrive in overgrown lawns. These parasites favor lush grass and tall weeds, using the foliage as launching pads to find their next host. Without regular lawn care and pest inspections, a few wayward ticks could spiral into a full-blown infestation.
While there are over 90 types of ticks in the United States, you’ll find only a few in the Vancouver-Portland Metro Area. Here are the most common ticks within our region:

American dog tick

Western black-legged tick

Rocky Mountain wood tick

Among these, the Western black-legged tick is notorious for transmitting Lyme disease, while the American dog tick and Rocky Mountain wood tick may carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. 
If a tick has bitten you, remove it carefully, making sure the entire head is out of your skin. You can either take a photo of the tick or place it in a sealed plastic bag for reference. This will aid in identifying potential illnesses if you begin to experience symptoms. 
When it comes to ticks, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. While venturing outdoors, especially in tall grass, tuck your pant legs into your socks to prevent ticks from crawling up your legs. After spending time outdoors, thoroughly check yourself and your pets for signs of ticks.
