Fleas are parasites that feed on humans and other warm blooded animals. When you have a flea problem you and your pets serve as the host.

A flea can jump 7 to 8 inches vertically and 14 to 16 inches horizontally. A skin reaction to a flea bite appears as a slightly raised and red itchy spot. Sometimes these sores bleed. Fleas usually require warm and humid conditions to develop. Due to the flea life cycle and feeding habits, many people don't realize they have a flea problem until they are away from their house for an extended period of time. This happens because the fleas get hungry while the hosts are away and they become highly active when the hosts return. People tend to think putting the pet outside will solve the flea problem, but that typically makes the fleas turn to human hosts instead.

There are several types of fleas, but the most common is the cat flea, which also feeds on dogs and humans. Fleas are attracted to body heat, movement, and exhaled carbon dioxide.



It is important that you have your pet treated for fleas first, then, try not to let your freshly treated pet back into the areas in your home that are infested before you have it professional treated.  Any area that your pet spends time in at your home needs to be treated, especially their bedding area.

Vacuum all areas that your pest inhabits including carpet, floors, upholstered furniture, mattresses, etc. Each time you finish vacuuming you need to place the used bag in a sealed bag (ziploc bag or a bag you can tie up) and dispose of it outside of the home. If it is possible to wash your pets bedding then do so otherwise dispose of it.

For all areas being treated by a pest control professional these areas need to be clear of any clutter or debris so that the treatment will be effective.

If you are having your yard sprayed, you need to mow the lawn and also make sure that any clutter and debris are removed from the yard.



Treatment for Fleas  is inside, but on occasion a perimeter  outside service is required.  All pets need to be out the treatment area for no less than 4 hours, including birds.  Fish Tanks need to be covered and pump turned off. Heat/AC need to be turned off during treatment and for 4 hours after treatment so chemical can settle.

Very Important: Following our treatment, you need to continue to vacuum every third day for the next 3 weeks to ensure that all eggs are removed from your living area. DO NOT FORGET TO DISPOSE OF AND SEAL THE VACUUM BAG EACH TIME YOU VACUUM.
