Why do I have Fleas in my home or business?
Fleas are a type of parasite that feeds off the blood of warm-blooded animals. The most common animal that fleas are found on are cats and dogs. Any animal that goes outside is likely to pick up fleas and bring them back into your home or business.
Unfortunately, we have made it much easier for fleas to thrive in our homes or businesses with central heat and wall-to-wall carpeting for them to seek shelter in. This provides them with the perfect, warm environment for them to thrive, leaving you and your pets at risk. An adult flea can live up to a few weeks on an animal, while feeding and laying hundreds of eggs during that time.
Southwest Florida Flea Inspection
Southwest Florida Fleas depend on a blood meal from their host in order to survive. Often, they can become an inside problem when the host animal they were previously feeding on is no longer there. This is when fleas focus on their feeding activity on other hosts that reside inside your home or business. For example, a rodent can easily bring fleas into your home, when the rodent is removed the fleas can move to feed on both you and your pets.
Many signs can indicate that you may have a flea infestation. You may notice that your pets have excessive scratching as fleas add discomfort. You may also notice bite marks on both pets and humans alike. You will also start to find their feces in your pet’s bed, in the carpet, on rugs, as well as other areas where your pets may rest or congregate.
Flea Control in Southwest Florida
We don’t just simply eliminate the current flea infestation in your home or business, we also prevent future unwanted and unwelcome flea infestations as well. We treat specific areas to take out the source of the problem. The majority of flea infestations originates from outside and are accidently brought into your home or business by a host animal. Our skilled flea control technicians will pinpoint potential problem areas of your home or business, as well as recommendations that will help aid in gaining back control.
We focus on the perimeter of your property. As soon as we achieve interior control, future services will only need to be performed on the outside quarterly. After your initial treatment, please allow 7 to 10 days for the treatments to take full effect.
How do I know if I have fleas?
There are a few ways to tell if you’re dealing with a flea infestation. You might see your pets scratching excessively. Even a small number of fleas can lead to compulsive scratching in dogs and cats with flea allergies. You may also find small, red, itchy bite marks, usually on your ankles and lower legs. You may even detect fleas with the naked eye as they are fairly easy to spot as adults.
How do fleas reproduce?
Although fleas spend the majority of their time on a host, they don’t lay their eggs there. Flea eggs can be found on rugs, in carpet, and on upholstery. The eggs hatch quickly often taking only a few days.
How do I get rid of fleas?
Exterminating fleas can be a long and difficult process and involves a number of steps. You will have to vacuum your entire home thoroughly, including all fabric surfaces. Then you will need to mop all of the hard floors in your home. After cleaning, apply a flea treatment. Once the flea treatment has been completed, you need to vacuum your home every day for the following few days. The contents of the vacuum should be emptied away from your home. You’ll also need to bathe any pets with flea shampoo or have them treated by your veterinarian in order to eliminate any fleas they may be carrying. Considering how complicated getting rid of fleas can be, it’s often a good idea to contact a pest control professional.
