Identify Common Fleas & Ticks in North Carolina

Fleas and ticks are ectoparasites that thrive in North Carolina’s warm and humid climate, posing significant challenges for both humans and pets. Fleas, such as the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) and the dog flea (Ctenocephalides canis), are common in households with pets and can also bite humans, causing itching and discomfort.

Ticks are another concern in North Carolina, with species like the American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) and the lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum) commonly encountered. These ticks can transmit various diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever to humans and animals, emphasizing the importance of proactive measures to prevent bites and reduce exposure.
