Fleas may appear to be a minor bother. However, cat and dog fleas reproduce so quickly that they eventually harm them. When a flea infestation persists, it can be more than just an annoyance. Although flea bites are not dangerous, fleas have been known to transmit disease. They cause allergic reactions and skin irritation in both animals and humans.
Unsurprisingly, by the time homeowners begin to feel the effects of a flea infestation, the flea population has already grown to levels that cannot be controlled with do-it-yourself methods. Pest management employs standardized and systematic procedures to eliminate fleas, mice, and other pests.
What Methods Does a Pest Control Company Use to Get Rid of Fleas?
Eliminating fleas, like eliminating cockroaches or rats, requires a systematic approach. Most companies use a four-step process to eliminate fleas and keep them away from your home.
Fleas will usually attach themselves to your dogs. However, when you have a severe flea infestation, you can find flea eggs and large fleas almost anywhere. It is critical to pinpoint the locations of flea infestations to ensure the effective distribution of flea treatment chemicals.
Professional flea removal services use effective treatments to eliminate adult fleas and prevent flea infestations. To do so, they must be aware of the reproduction habits and breeding hotspots of this flea species. After determining what is needed, a flea control provider will apply a flea treatment.
In this case, flea control services shine. A pest control specialist will use the appropriate flea treatment, such as a flea bomb, based on the life cycle, population concentration, and level of infection of the flea.
Their assistance does not end with flea removal; they will also provide useful information on how to prevent bothersome fleas from reappearing after the initial treatment. To control fleas in the home, pest control companies and homeowners must collaborate.
How Do Fleas Get Into Your House?
Adult fleas may latch onto your pets when you take them for a walk, which is one of the most common ways a flea infestation begins. A cat flea will stick to your cat as it moves if one is present. You can’t make your male tabby stay put. Once fleas are present in your home, it only takes four to eight weeks for an infestation to become more than a nuisance. Female fleas lay 50 eggs per day. Twenty thousand eggs will hatch from that throughout their lives.
Fleas can enter your home through a variety of entry points. Flea eggs fall from their hosts and roll down, landing on carpets, furniture, and pet bedding, where flea larvae can develop. Adult fleas are among the best jumpers in the animal kingdom. Even without the assistance of animal fur, they can spread throughout your home independently. You must act quickly if you notice them in your home.
