It is a myth that fleas and ticks do not bite in winter. As the weather turns colder outside, fleas often take refuge in warm homes. A tick's life cycle lasts more than a year. It hibernates in the winter, but if the opportunity for a warm meal arises, it will take it. In Maryland, it is never cold enough for long enough to be truly safe from the pests that plague our pets. We recommend using year round parasite preventive for all indoor and outdoor pets. Prevention is safer, easier, and less expensive than treatment!
