Now that the warmer weather has set in, it also means more and more parasites are coming out of the woodwork and attacking you and your pets. Fleas tend to be one of the biggest complaints from pet owners when it comes to warmer weather setting into the area. While these wingless creatures are quite small, the damage they can do is extensive. Once you know that you have a flea problem, you need to act quickly to get rid of them.
Beyond the typical itching caused from a flea bite, there is also the chance that your pet could end up with hot spots from all the chewing and scratching on their skin. The best thing you can do while working to get your home treated is to treat your pet with some type of antibacterial shampoo to help alleviate the pain and itching. Don’t ignore the situation; do something about it as quickly as you can to bring your pet the relief it needs.
Trying to handle a flea problem alone is only going to end up causing you a lot of stress and money. Is that what you want? Of course, you don’t.

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.
