Never pick up a dead rat! Why not? Rats may have infected fleas, when the rat dies the fleas need a new host hence the flea could select you as the host. While we can control disease we need to be careful.
Ticks are some of the smallest pests we have in Maryland. They are approximately the same size as a sesame seed - but don’t let their size fool you! These tiny pests can be extremely detrimental to your pets and your family.
