Fleas are best treated before their numbers reach epidemic proportions, but many people wait until the situation becomes unbearable. A common mistake is to treat the pets themselves as well as their bedding when it becomes obvious that intervention is necessary. Although this is a great start, it isn’t enough. Successfully winning the war on fleas means treating inside your property in away designed to kill the insects in every stage of their development. Otherwise, the situation just becomes a vicious cycle.
Fleas are small, wingless, hard-bodied insects that move quickly and are highly prolific. They bite wild animals, domestic pets, and humans. Their bites often cause severe itching, particularly when multiple bites are part of the picture.
Fleas have the potential to transmit bacterial infections, disease, and internal parasites. The itching caused by their bites often results in secondary infections and skin damage caused by scratching.
Flea infestations that are left untreated quickly spiral out of control, and pet owners should be aware that the visual presence of even one lone flea usually means that there are hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, that you don’t see.
Fleas can be especially difficult to get rid of during the hottest part of summer because they thrive in high temperatures. Furthermore, they reproduce so quickly during the height of summer that successfully getting their population in check can feel nearly impossible. Although many consumers turn to home remedies and over-the-counter pest control products to combat fleas, these aren’t strong enough to stop a fully fledged flea infestation. Each individual female flea lays up to 50 eggs per day, and these eggs wind up distributed all over the home.
Even if your pets live exclusively outdoors, fleas and their eggs easily hitch rides inside on clothing, soles of shoes, towels, and anything else that goes from outdoors into the home interior. Fleas find indoor conditions very comfortable, and colonies quickly develop and begin to multiply. Besides, outdoor pets can suffer greatly from fleas if left untreated, so it’s a good idea to take pest control measures for their benefit.

CLEAN AND CLEAR ALL FLOORS – Even closet floors must be cleared of all objects to give your pest control professional access to all floor surfaces. Mop all tile, laminate and vinyl floors. Sweep all concrete floors.
REMOVE PETS – Pets cannot remain in the home during the treatment. Fish bowls and aquariums may remain if properly covered. Air supply must be turned off, and the aquarium must be completely covered with a towel or sheet.
CLEAN PET BEDDING – All pet bedding must be washed or disposed of. If laundering, wash pet bedding separately from other linens.
Normal vacuuming can be resumed 2 weeks after your home has been treated
