Looking for Alternative Pest Control Options?
A special division of Killroy Pest Control
At less than a quarter inch in length, fleas are actually quite tiny. They look almost like a grain of sand, so you have to really be on the lookout for them to appear. Since they tend to hide out when exposed to light, you have to really spend time looking for them on your pet. If you see one, you can rest assured that there are a lot more lurking in the shadows that you aren’t seeing. Don’t delay in getting the problem addressed today.
If your pet is continually chewing on themselves because of a flea problem, they could end up swallowing one of the nasty critters and getting a tapeworm. When that happens, your pet will end up losing out on precious nutrients they need to survive. A tapeworm looks almost like sand, but the effects are far more devastating to your pet. Take the time to discuss what you can do for your home and your pet today.
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.

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.
