As the warmer months roll around, it seems like more pets are being attacked by fleas than ever before thought possible. Before you know it, the fleas are invading your dog and cat and leaving your pet with welts and scars. Pets aren’t the only ones who are susceptible to these bites though. Humans are just as prone to being attacked. Not only are flea bites itchy, but they cause a number of issues for you and your loved ones.
Being bitten by a flea can cause your skin to form small bumps on it. However, those bumps can become far worse when your pet is allergic to the bite. When that happens, your pet will continually scratch at themselves leaving a bunch of welts and swelling in their wake. To make sure your pet isn’t continually attacked by fleas, you need a professional who understands what it takes to get them out of your home quickly and easily.
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.
Figuring out who to turn to when you have a pest problem can be a long and drawn out process, but it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you might think. For more than half a century, Killroy Pest Control has been helping address your flea problems. Allow yourself plenty of time to speak with one of the reps at the family-owned business that treats you just like you are a part of the family.
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.
