Summer is here.  The weather is warmer making bugs, snakes and fleas come out.  Have you heard that Typhus is showing up around San Diego? Yep you read correctly thats TYPHUS.  A bacteria mostly erased from modern first world countries by modern medicine, sanitation, and pest control.  What's Typhus?  A disease cased by infection with one or more rickettsial bacteria.  Fleas, mites, chiggers, lice and tick can carry typhus and when they bite its transferred.  Any scratching of bites further spreads the bacteria greater access to your blood and makes it spread.  The fleas on animals whether they are domestic or not brings your exposure risk higher.  


Fleas are always a big problem in San Diego in the summer.  How can you as a homeowner prevent the problem?  


  1. Spray the yards around your home

  2. Trim back bushes off the house.

  3. Use screens

  4. Put up plants that repeal bugs

  5. Keep doors closes

  6. Close off open access to under your house to prevent rats and Vermits which carry fleas.

  7. Use peppermint on cotton balls to repeal rats

  8. Have you animal use flea treatment


If you would prefer to not handle the mess yourself, call me, we would be happy to give you some referrals to licensed pest control people.
