Even though fleas are actually quite small in stature, that doesn’t mean they can’t do a lot of damage. In fact, the damage they can cause is more than you realize. They suck your pets’ blood to the point of causing them to become quite ill. Take action from the first minute you see a flea on your family pet. In the end, it will prevent additional problems from affecting you and your pet and making everyone sick.
How many times have you seen your pet licking their skin in an attempt to control the itching from fleas? Did you know that there is a good chance they could swallow a flea and potentially end up with tapeworms? These parasites live inside of your pets intestines and take the nutrients they need to be healthy. Tapeworms resemble sand, so be on the lookout for them to appear in your pets stool. The best thing you can do is to begin treating it as quickly as possible, and let a professional come in and take care of your home for you.
Many homeowners think that fleas are no big deal, but that is a horrible misconception. These parasites can come in and cause destruction in every room they invade. Beyond tearing your pet up and potentially making them ill, they also cause others in the home to suffer. Why wait for them to tear everyone up when you have options available to do something about it? Killroy Pest Control is here to help, but you have to make the first step in calling them to your home.
Killroy professionals can help to control your flea problem.
Fleas are no different than any other pest that is trying to invade your property. Regardless of how bad the problem might be right now, it is only going to get worse if you ignore it. Your home, business and school all need to be treated properly to prevent the issue from spreading. Spend a minute with Killroy talking about the treatment options and how they can help you. For more than 55 years, the team has been working tirelessly to help customers just like you.
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.
