There have been some complaints of fleas in the dog park and dog walking areas.  The LHE groundskeepers have sprayed this area.  They will continue to spray periodically and these areas will be closed immediately after spraying.  There will be signs posted to alert residents that the area(s) have been treated.  Once the area is safe for pets and  humans, the signs will be removed. We expect that these periodic closures will be no longer than 24 hours, depending on weather conditions.  Also this serves as a good reminder that we all need to check our pets regularly and keep up on our regular flea and tick treatments.  In this area of Florida there is rarely a hard freeze.  As a result fleas and ticks are with us all year long.  From The Pet Committee.
