When spring hits Michigan, it doesn’t just bring along with it fresh grass and blooming flowers. It also delivers with it, those annoying and dangerous disease-carrying fleas and ticks. An infestation of one of these pests is not only irritating and challenging to get rid of, but they also carry diseases like dermatitis, bartonellosis (cat scratch fever), Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
