Don’t let fleas and ticks catch you by surprise. Here are some of their most common hideouts…exposed:

Places They Hide

In the Home

Fleas love to get comfortable inside your home. First, their eggs fall from your untreated pet onto carpets, floors, and furniture. Then they hatch into larvae that dig deep into crevices to escape the light. Soon you’ve got an indoor infestation.

Grass

Fleas and ticks thrive in yards and parks where they can hide in the grass and shrubs. There, they wait for unsuspecting pets to pass by so they can latch on for a blood meal.

Sand

Gravel and damp sandboxes make the perfect home for flea larvae to develop into adults.

Forest

Ticks hang out in the underbrush of wooded areas as well as the tips of tall grasses and weeds.

Other Animals

Fleas can be found almost any place where pets or wild animals go—from dog parks to spaces under your home. Eggs that fall from other animals can soon cause problems for your pet.
