What are Fleas?
Fleas are tiny parasites that feed on the blood of their hosts. They are small, brownish insects that can be seen jumping around on the skin or fur of their hosts. They are about 1/8-inch long and can be very difficult to see with the naked eye.
They can be found on animals and people and can cause various health problems. In addition, flea populations can grow rapidly, making them a serious pest to deal with. Fortunately, there are many ways to control fleas, both indoors and outdoors.
How To Identify Fleas
The best way to identify fleas is to look for signs of them on your pet. For example, seeing your pet scratching or biting itself more than usual may be a sign that it has fleas. You may also be able to see small, brownish insects crawling on their skin or fur.
Flea Pest Control
The importance of flea pest control cannot be overstated. Fleas can cause a variety of health problems for both pets and people and can quickly multiply into large populations. Therefore, it is essential to take steps to control fleas both indoors and outdoors.
Finding reliable, professional flea treatment can do a lot to help you eliminate these pesky little critters from your property. It can also help to prevent future infestations from occurring. Flea beetle control can be done indoors and outdoors, so it’s important to be vigilant both inside and outside of your home.
Dealing With A Flea Infestation
If you have a flea infestation, there are a few things you can do to get rid of them. First, you will need to treat both your pet and your home. This is because fleas can lay eggs anywhere, including on your furniture, bedding, and carpeting.
To start, you will need to treat your pet with a flea shampoo or other product designed to kill fleas. You may also need to give them a Flea Bath. Be sure to follow the directions on the product label carefully.
After treating your pet, you will need to focus on your home. Start by vacuuming all of the carpets and upholstered furniture in your home. Be sure to dispose of the vacuum bag immediately after you are finished so the fleas cannot escape back into your home.
You may also need to wash all of your bedding and clothing in hot water. This will kill any fleas or eggs that may be present. You may also need to treat your home with an insecticide designed for flea control or call Mission Pest Control for professional flea removal and flea fumigation to ensure that no fleas are missed.
Had Tim and Gilbert stop by yesterday for an evaluation and primary service visit. They were both great and easy to talk to. They went over everything they were doing and knocked it out. Also kept things safe for our little pack of wild rabbits that like to hang out. Really happy I worked with Mission Pest Control.
Great service. Our tech, Nick came out when we started our service. Nick is good at listening to which pests and where I have been seeing them and he then follows up with the appropriate treatment. If I see any activity in between services they come out and take care of it.
Preventing Flea Infestations
The best way to deal with fleas is to prevent them from becoming a problem in the first place. However, there are a few things you can do to help prevent fleas from taking up residence in your home.
The first thing you can do is to keep your pet clean and well-groomed. This will help to remove any fleas or eggs that may be present on their fur. You should also regularly vacuum and wash all the bedding and clothing in your home.
You can also take steps to control fleas outdoors. This includes keeping your yard clean and free of debris. You may also want to consider using an insecticide (outdoor flea treatment) around the perimeter of your home. We recommend finding a trusted pest control company that offers professional flea treatment and prevention services, such as Mission Pest Control.
