Host to Fleas and Ticks


A person, or animal, that carries a symbiotic or parasitic insect. A dog carrying fleas or a person with a tick are examples. People, or animals, become hosts when ticks, fleas, or other unwanted pests, invade their green spaces. Regular lawn and tree care helps keep fleas and ticks controlled.
