Fort Worth Flea & Tick Control
Protect Your North Texas Home & Pets from Nasty Pests
Like bed bugs, pet owners know that once their dog or cat has fleas and brings them into the house, it can be a challenge to get rid of them. Fleas and ticks may be treated indoors, but the goal of a flea-free home really begins outside. Flea treatment for your yard prevents these pests from multiplying and invading our home by targeting the places they live and reproduce. At Purple Care, we are experienced providing effective flea and tick control in Fort Worth to keep these nasty pests out of your home and away from your yard.

Why Outdoor Flea & Tick Control Is So Important
The most common species of flea, the cat flea, reproduces readily in gravel, sandy soil, wood chips, and other dark, damp, well-drained areas. The rate of reproduction is incredible—one female flea alone can produce over 20,000 offspring in a month. With those kinds of numbers amassing right outside your door, you may wonder how an over the counter treatment will be sufficient to stop them. In many cases, it’s just not. While the female fleas already on your pet can explode the infestation quickly, it’s the swarms hiding in the shadows outside in your yard that are the real problem.
Flea pest control frequently takes place in the home, but when we or our animals go outside, we can easily pick up jumping pests and bring them back inside. Eggs and larvae can also come in attached to shoes. Purple Care outdoor flea and tick control gets to the source of the problem, creating a wall of protection around your home that will not let these potentially dangerous insects survive.
The Effect of Fleas & Ticks
Left untreated, fleas and ticks can suck enough blood out of your pet to cause anemia. They may also introduce bacteria into the bloodstream, potential parasites, and can trigger allergic responses as well. If fleas get inside from the garden, they can also affect the people in the house, causing itchy red bite marks. Spraying a purchased or homemade treatment on your grass will do very little to get rid of a flea or tick infestation.
Professional pest control experts, like ours at Purple Care, know the right formulas to:
- Stop the explosive reproduction
- Kill fleas and ticks at every stage of their lifecycle
- Target the places where they are most likely to live
The result of flea pest control outside is a more comfortable time in the backyard, fewer fleas in the house, and happier pets and family overall.
