These bloodsucking pests are usually brought in on a dog or cat. If the flea problem goes unnoticed on the pet for a while, fleas can begin nesting in carpets and furniture, which means they can persist even after the pets have been treated for fleas. Fleas prefer to bite the host animal (dog or cat), but they can bite humans as well. It is a common scenario that one resident with a pet that has fleas moves out of a house, and the new resident moves in to fleas biting them, especially if there are no more cats or dogs to feed on.
It is important to have the pets treated for fleas by a veterinarian, as we do not treat your pet directly. We will treat your home or business with two products: one that will kill the adult fleas, and one that will kill the egg and larval stages of the fleas. This way we can be sure the problem will be fully eradicated.
Some people get fleas in their home even though there are no dogs or cats around. If this is the case, it can be an indicator of another pest problem. Fleas can also be brought in on mice, rats, raccoons, skunks, or other wildlife. This additional pest problem must be dealt with also to be sure the flea problem is solved permanently.
