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.
Flea bites cause your skin to form small bumps. If you are someone with an allergy to flea saliva, those small bumps end up becoming more severe and swell up. Your pet ends up scratching at themselves all the time causing painful welts to form on their skin. If you are looking for a way to eliminate the pests from your pet and your home, you need to bring in someone that knows how to get rid of the problem for you.
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.
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.
