2 Things You Don’t Want to Know About Fleas

Whoever said good things come in small packages wasn’t talking about fleas.

Just say the word ‘flea’ and your skin starts to crawl. Now imagine that they have invaded your home, and that feeling of discomfort probably multiplies by a thousand. Fleas are some of the most difficult pests to get rid of. It can be an all out war to knock their population out. And if you miss even one, you’ll be right back where you started.

Here are just a few of the reasons fleas pose such a problem to many homeowners:

1. Flea eggs are not attached to the host. This means that flea eggs can be anywhere – bedding, carpet, furniture, pet hair, you name it. And if you think a flea is hard to see, the eggs are practically invisible. The only way to be sure you won’t have a recurring flea problem is to trust professionals with certified treatment plans.

2. Fleas have a season. Summer, winter, spring, fall…flea? Certain types of weather conditions allow fleas and all manner of insects to flourish. Fleas in particular attach themselves to common household pets like dogs and cats. By hitching a ride on Fido, they can sneak into homes unnoticed and get comfortable before you have time to notice. Checking your pet regularly is a great way to take preventative action against fleas.
