A special division of Killroy Pest Control
With the onset of spring and summer, more and more pets are becoming the victim of fleas. These pests end up taking over your cats and dogs and leaving them with some of the most atrocious bites and scars you could ever imagine, not to mention what they can do to their human counterparts in the home. Beyond being itchy, fleas can end up causing a whole host of other problems for you and your pet.
While most bites from fleas end up causing a small bump to form on the skin, it can be much worse than that if your pet is suffering from an allergy to the fleas’ saliva. In that case, your pet is going to end up scratching constantly, and could end up with welts and swelling all over their skin. To prevent your pet from being attacked by these pests, you need to bring in someone who can help to prevent them from taking over your home.
Instead of trying to handle the problem on your own with a flea collar, powder or other alternative, you need to bring in someone who can get to the root of the problem quickly and easily to restore your home to normal. With the dedicated team of professionals at Killroy working on your side, you don’t have to worry about your pet or loved ones suffering through flea bites and irritation. Their method is proven to work in even the direst of situations.
Killroy professionals can help to control your flea problem.
When working with someone who has such a long-standing reputation for providing results to people just like you, it only makes sense that Killroy is the right choice. For more than 50 years, their team has helped to address issues with fleas and other pests in the home. Before you know it, your home will be safe and secure and no one will have to worry about swelling up from an allergic reaction to these nasty pests.
Inspect the property:It is important to identify whether the source of all the scratching and bites are actually from fleas, and not another type of problem. Even if you have no pets and recently moved into a new residence, the prior tenant may have had pets. And while the fleas prefer to use an animal as its host, if the animal is no longer there, you are the next best meal.
Modify the environment: Your Killroy pest management professional will look for and recommend changes to any environmental condition that might be lending itself to the flea problem. Sometimes broken vents and sub access points can allow feral animals to start living under your home or business. Opossums, skunks, raccoons and of course feral cats can be loaded with fleas. The fleas will find their way into the structure and find your pets, and you!
Establish and implement a plan: Your Killroy pest management professional will consider the most effective method of solving your flea problem. He will explain this plan, which may require customer/tenant pre and post treatment participation, and answer any questions you may have. He will then carefully treat the situation and return your home/business to a flea free environment.
Monitor the process: It is important to monitor the situation until it is resolved. Part of your Killroy pest management professional's plan is to provide you with the proper post treatment procedure to ensure your flea treatment is completely effective.
