How to protect your pets from fleas and ticks

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Exterminators say something as simple as vacuuming your home regularly can keep your house free of fleas and ticks.  

As the warmer weather approaches, exterminators say they'll be more prevalent and vacuuming can prevent the laying of eggs. They also say pets can get fleas and ticks from other stray animals. Exterminators say fleas and ticks are attracted to moist areas on animals.  

"They're going to house around the nose area, around the ears and around the back area and on the back because that's moist areas right there. So those are some of the places you need to look for when you're looking for fleas," said Heath Bass with Arrow Exterminators.

They recommend that you check your pets twice a week for fleas and ticks.
