Warmer weather means an increased chance of fleas winding up on your pet. Once these pests have made their way into your home, they can end up attacking more than just the family pet. Everyone ends up getting bitten and suffering the repercussions. At first glance, you might not realize you are even dealing with fleas. However, that doesn’t mean you should sit back and wait for the problem to spiral out of control. Taking action today is the key to controlling the problem.
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.
Even if you have never dealt with fleas in the past, that doesn’t mean you should take them lightly. They are a serious matter that can cause a lot of problems for your pet and your home. Attempting to control them alone could cost you time, money and patience. Don’t stress over the situation; grab the phone and call upon a crew that cares about you as an individual and not just your pocketbook with Killroy.

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.
