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.
Itching is one thing, but hot spots from the constant chewing and scratching is even worse. In fact, it could end up leading to an infection on your pet because of the skin being exposed. The best thing for you and your pet is to get an antibacterial shampoo to get their skin back to a manageable state and prevent the problem from getting worse. Taking care of your pet is one thing, but you need someone with the proper training to come in and take care of your home.
While you might think you are saving money, you are actually making a flea problem worse by trying to handle it alone. You need someone with extensive experience to come in and get to work on the problem for you. At Killroy Pest Control, you aren’t going to be left with a mess and a lot of money drained from your pocketbook. Trust in someone who cares about you and your home today.

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.
