Fleas and Ticks Bring Misery and Disease
Flea and tick spray for the yard can make your home safer and more pleasant. Fleas and ticks are a tremendous health hazard for everyone in the family and the pets. For example, the nursery rhyme, ring around the rosy, pocket full of posies, is a childhood rhyme of which most people are familiar. However, the story around the rhyme is not as well known. At one time the population of Europe was devastated by the bubonic plague. (See http://www.rhymes.org.uk/ring_around_the_rosy.htm) The plague was caused by a disease carried by fleas. The rhyme described the symptoms of the bubonic plague, which included circular patches of skin that were rosy in color. Posies were flowers that were carried in the pocket; the belief was the fragrance of the flower prevented a person from catching the bubonic plague.
The good news is that the bubonic plague is not present in North Carolina, but fleas still bring misery, and ticks do bring transmit diseases. Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are among the diseases carried by ticks. People and pets can be infected with the aforementioned diseases. In some instances, hospitalization is required and ehrlichiosis can result in death. Flea and tick spray for yard pests help to keep your family and pets safe. See the following North Carolina Department of Health Site concerning tick borne diseases found in North Carolina.
