Fleas & Ticks

Brown Dog Tick

brown_dog_tick_275x183The Brown Dog Tick is common to many parts of the United States, including Arizona.  Infestations can range from minor to severe and affect domesticated pets, feeding on blood by way of attachment to the skin surface beneath the pet’s fur.  It is difficult to distinguish between males and females.  Attachment to humans is uncommon.  The Brown Dog Tick is often confused with the Deer Tick, as both look similar in later stages of engorgement due to shield design.  The mouth part of the Brown Dog Tick is much shorter than the Deer Tick.





Dog & Cat Flea

flea_349x344Dog and Cat fleas are wingless insects about 1/16″ to 1/8″ in size and feed off the blood of pets with mouth parts adapted for piercing skin. Fleas actually move by jumping up to 13″ at a time, which makes them one of the best jumpers in the animal world (relative to its size), second only to the froghopper.

Please Note: Fleas and Ticks can be controlled through proper pest management services offered by Lady Liberty Pest Control, however infestations in your pet should be addressed and managed through methods suggested by your veterinarian.
