Fleas

Flea Identification & Treatment

Fleas are flightless insects that can jump very far and rely on blood meals from a host. Fleas feed on a variety of hosts including humans, cats, dogs, squirrels, rabbits, rats, mice and birds. They are very small, adults only reach about 3 mm in size. Fleas easily maneuver around different hairs and fibers. Despite their small size, fleas reproduce rapidly and in high numbers so infestations can quickly become very large.

Preventing pesky flea infestations before they invade your home is the best approach to pest control. During winter and spring months, plan ahead to provide a ring of protection around your property. At the first sign of pests, act quickly to regain your ground. Once a full-blown flea infestation is on your hands, it's an uphill battle to push back these pests.

Proactive Flea Prevention

Treating dogs and cats with effective flea control medicine is the first step in prevention. Consult your veterinarian regarding the use of sprays, pills and collars that kill fleas. Be proactive with frequent baths and grooming.  Launder pet bedding and place it in an area of your home where sunlight shines on it throughout the day. Regularly vacuum floors and rugs.

Outside your home, keep your yard clean and remove overgrowth annually. Create a layer of pest deterrence around your home by eliminating hiding places for fleas, ticks, spiders and insects. Trimming shrubs and removing decay also discourages feral cats, possums and racoons from entering your yard and bringing fleas with them.
