Fleas & Ticks

August to September are the most active flea and tick months, however because of Florida’s year round warm temperatures, these pests can wreak havoc on a FL home almost any time of the year.  If you are a pet owner you are even more susceptible to invasion from these blood-feeding insects, so it is important that you have a preventative treatment plan such as offered by Horizon Pest in addition to treating your pets with veterinarian approved flea and tick treatments.
