Protecting Your Idaho Home From Fleas & Ticks

Fleas and ticks are two pests that have several similarities and several differences. Both are parasites, meaning they need a host to survive. They feed on blood in order to move from one stage of development to the next. Both of these pests are also often found in the yards of Meridian and Boise homes, where they have easy access to the people and pets who live inside.

Although fleas and ticks can spread diseases to humans and pets, ticks are more well-known for the dangerous illnesses they spread. On the other hand, fleas are far more likely to infest the inside of homes, while most tick species cannot survive in indoor locations for very long before they dry out and die.

Regardless of the similarities and differences, one thing is certain: you don’t want either of these pests on your property, either outside or inside. In order to protect your family, you need flea and tick control from Owyhee Environmental. Whether you suspect an active infestation or not, our services will keep these harmful pests off your property.

Our Flea & Tick Control Offerings


Your service begins with an inspection of your property. We’ll look for signs of an active infestation, harborage areas, and conducive conditions. Because we value low-impact, long-term solutions, our service includes providing you with recommendations about how to take preventative measures against fleas and ticks. For instance, making simple changes to your landscaping can often yield great results in decreasing your chances of ending up with fleas and ticks on your property.


Our treatment involves using a backpack sprayer or fogger to create a barrier of protection around the perimeter of your yard. This barrier stops fleas and ticks from getting through, making your property a safe, tick, and flea-free area.

If fleas have gotten into your home, we also offer indoor treatments to eliminate them.
