Does Climate Change Impact Flea and Tick Populations?

Climate change is responsible for the proliferation of parasites such as fleas and ticks. This year could get worse as the weather gets hotter.

Key takeaways:

– Climate change has been blamed for the spread of fleas and ticks into new areas and their rising numbers. Urban sprawl could play a part.

– The rise in flea and tick numbers has led to the increase in diseases that affect your pets — Lyme disease, tularemia, and cat scratch fever.

– The rise in temperatures may have a good effect with some diseases — such as anaplasmosis and Powassan fever — as they tend to disappear as the weather becomes warmer.

“Naturally, if flea and tick season – warmer months like summer and fall – lasts longer, the odds increase that your pet could catch a disease.”
