As Minnesota natives, we get the joy of watching trees turn to beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red. The morning air is crisp and the grass covered in dew from the cooler overnight temperatures. Many know that summer is the most active time for fleas and ticks but did you know that some of the worst flea numbers come in the fall, September, October and November months?
Prepare for Fleas Year Round
Many pet owners believe that once the temperatures start to decrease the need for flea treatment also decreases. Fall is the time of an increase in precipitation and around 70 degree days. Perfect fall day, right? Well, fleas think so too! Fleas thrive in moist conditions with temperatures around 70 degrees. So depending on where you call home will depend on flea infestation months.

Flea Protection: Gentle Enough for a Kitten, Strong Enough for a Horse
Weather is unpredictable. Unless the Midwest is in the heart of the winter months, we need to be careful not to let our guard down with flea protection. In fact, 70% of people see an increase in flea infestation due to believing flea populations decrease in the fall.
