Looking for Alternative Pest Control Options?
A special division of Killroy Pest Control
Has your pet been scratching a lot more recently? Have you found "fleas below your knees" and flea bites on your own skin?
When fleas have invaded your property, they can make life miserable for pets and people. For every flea that you see on your pet, there are likely hundreds of eggs and larvae in your home and yard. A truly effective flea control program always includes treating the whole environment, indoors and out.
Because fleas live and travel inside the home and outside in your lawn and garden, they be very difficult to eliminate by simply treating your pets with a collar or spray. You'll need professional assistance to treat the whole environment. Please see our 4-step flea control process at the bottom of this page.

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.
