With spring here, your pet is likely to end up being attacked by fleas who like to make their home in your pets’ warm coat of fur. These critters can end up multiplying and taking over your pets’ body in no time at all. As the fleas bite, they leave welts and scars behind. Pets and humans alike can end up itching and scratching in an attempt to alleviate some of the pain from the flea bites. Beyond itching, flea bites also cause health problems for those who are bitten.
Beyond the typical itching caused from a flea bite, there is also the chance that your pet could end up with hot spots from all the chewing and scratching on their skin. The best thing you can do while working to get your home treated is to treat your pet with some type of antibacterial shampoo to help alleviate the pain and itching. Don’t ignore the situation; do something about it as quickly as you can to bring your pet the relief it needs.

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.
