News or Not
Warmer weather means greater likelihood of problems with fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes (which can transmit heartworm disease). Call me if you are having a problem, or need a preventative/treatment recommendation.
Once fleas are indoors, though, they are no longer susceptible to outdoor temperature fluctuations, so there will be an ongoing problem through the winter once pets (and their indoor living quarters) are infested. And I have seen mosquitoes in New Jersey in January; it doesn't take long for them to pop up during a brief balmy spell in the winter.
