This specialization lets us focus on the latest techniques and humane methods. We also specialize in offering bird control services.

About Pest Animal Baton Rouge and Our Services:
While you’ve been regularly bathing your dogs with anti-flea shampoo, you might not be aware that the wild animal that is dwelling in your attic can carry fleas that can be transferred to your pets. In this article, we will discuss the most common animal that can carry fleas and ticks. By keeping your attic free from these animals, you can ensure that your home will be free from fleas and ticks.
Fleas and Ticks on Wild Animals
Fleas are cunning and crafty creatures. They will first look for a host and as the host move, it will allow them to reach other place and look for other hosts. The fleas will then deposit their eggs on the fur of the host where it will grow on the skin or fur of the animal.
The feral cat that is roaming around our community is one of the possible carriers of the fleas. Contrary to what most people believe, the fleas do not have the flight ability. However, the distance that they can cover with their jumping ability is quite impressive. They will be waiting for your pets to pass through before they will jump on your pet. Usually the fleas will be found in the shaded areas and on places where the infected feral cats are frequenting.
Opossums and Raccoons
The opossums and the raccoons will not only rummage your trashcan, they may also carry fleas and ticks that can be transmitted to your pets. Since these creatures are nocturnal, it might be difficult to identify their presence. If you want to drive them away from your property, be sure to keep your trash and compost pile secured.
While they may not necessarily end up in your attic, they can also carry fleas and ticks. The deer tick was given this name due to its fondness on feeding on deer. In case you noticed that there is an increase in the activity of the deer in your community, this means that a tick may also be nearby. Since they can’t fly, they will wait for the unfortunate victim to pass by. They will then attach themselves on the fur of their target and gradually crawl upward.
Will Flea Transmit Diseases?
Apart from various infectious diseases, the fleas can also carry parasitic worms such as tapeworm. They are also being blamed for the plague which wiped out half of the European population. If your pet is swallowing the fleas, it will be exposed to the danger of Dipylidium Caninum. This is a type of tapeworm that will live in the intestine of the host and will survive by sucking the nutrients that are originally intended for your dogs. These parasites will carry eggs and may also affect the pet owner.
Flea problem is an issue that affects millions of homes all over the worlds. Based on the report, even the veterinary’s office will not be spared from the attack of the fleas. If you hear some strange noise in your attic, there might be a wild animal that harbors fleas and ticks living in your attic.
