Warmer weather means the potential for additional pests making their way into your home and onto your beloved family pet. Fleas might be wingless, but they are definitely not harmless. They end up biting on your pet and sucking their blood to the point that they leave them with sores that are quite painful. Once you notice fleas on your pet and in your home, it’s time to make a call to Killroy to get the problem solved right away.
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.
While some people think they can get rid of fleas on their own using nothing more than flea powder and a collar for their pet, that isn’t exactly the case. It takes a lot more than that to get the job done. You need someone who has experience and expertise to come in and get the job taken care of properly. At Killroy Pest Control, you can trust that the team of professionals will eradicate the fleas from your property quickly.
Killroy professionals can help to control your flea problem.
With so many different people out there in the pest control business, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your needs. However, Killroy can make that process simple. This family-owned enterprise has been helping people just like you to deal with their pest problems. Since 1956, they have been working to solve pest control issues at rates that are affordable for just about any budget.
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.
