When you need to search “Treatments for Fleas and Ticks Colorado”
Your pets will unlikely be the main source of fleas and ticks in your home. Usually, fleas feed on wild animals, such as skunks, foxes, and rabbits. According to the Colorado State University Extension office, Colorado fleas do not usually bite domesticated animals. “Human bites occur when the dens of wild animals are abandoned and fleas scatter. These fleas may get picked up by pets or move directly into a home.”
Ticks are more common at higher elevations, so that nice long hike could in fact have a downfall. CSU extension states: “Ticks are most active in spring and early summer and concentrate where their animal hosts most commonly travel.”
Fleas and ticks may transmit diseases through their bites
The most concerning issue with these creatures are the ticks attaching themselves to your dog, and potential flea bites to you or your dogs. Both of these creatures can cause disease. If a tick bites you in Colorado, it is likely the Rocky Mountain Wood tick. Its bite could infect you with Colorado tick fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, and relapsing fever, according to Colorado State University extension.
Most Colorado fleas feed on squirrels, ground squirrels or other wild rodents. If a flea bites you, it will appear as an itchy, red spot surrounded by a red halo, CSU extension warns: “Bites often occur in clusters, particularly at edges of tight-fitting clothing. … Humans are not a favored host of fleas and most bites occur when the fleas are starved from the absence of favored animal hosts. Clusters of small dark spots on bedding, the excrement produced by fleas, is one clue that fleas are present.”
