Let us help you take control of those fleas

Professional Flea Control Services

A flea’s sole purpose is to live off the blood of a host organism. These parasitic creatures are most active during the spring and summer seasons but can be a problem all year round. They’ve proven very difficult to combat due to their small size and resilience to various methods to control their numbers. One female flea can lay up to 2000 eggs within two to three months.

Don’t let these insects spread tapeworm infestations in your pets or cause your pets to suffer anemia. If you notice your pet is scratching or chewing a lot, there’s probably a flea problem. Call us right away.


Flea Fact #1

A flea can jump more than 100 times its length (vertically up to 7 inches and horizontally 13 inches). That’s equivalent to an adult human jumping 250 feet vertically and 450 feet horizontally.

Rarely do fleas jump from dog to dog. Most flea infestations come from newly developed fleas from the pet’s environment.

Flea Fact #2

During a flea infestation, treating your pet isn’t enough. You have to treat the environment too—that’s where the eggs and pupae are hiding.  There are eggs and pupae in the carpet, in between the floor boards, and even in your car, if you have a habit of taking your dog on rides. The only way to truly get rid of a flea infestation is calling an exterminator. 

Flea Fact #3

A female flea can lay up to 50 eggs every single day. Typically, it’s more like 20 eggs but the possibility of it being more is there. That means that a single prolific female flea can cause a major infestation in less than two months. This is why it’s super important to jump on treating fleas the very first time you see the first sign of a flea in your on or on your pet.

Flea FAQs

Fleas, ticks and bed bugs are highly mobile pests and can be carried easily between locations or within an apartment building. Identifying the source of the infestation and taking the proper steps to ensure a re-infestation does not occur can take multiple service visits.

There are a number of ways to tell if you’re dealing with a flea infestation. First, you might notice your pets scratching or chewing on themselves excessively. This is particularly common in dogs, and even just a handful of fleas can lead to compulsive scratching in dogs with a flea allergy. Additionally, you’ll often find small, red, itchy bite marks on your extremities, particularly around your ankles and lower legs. Finally, you can often detect fleas themselves with the naked eye. Fleas are fairly easy to spot when fully grown.

A flea infestation can be a major issue. For one thing, flea bites are extremely unpleasant to deal with: they often lead to significant amounts of itching and irritation, and sensitive individuals may experience allergic reactions. Additionally, though, fleas are known to carry and transmit a number of diseases. That’s why it’s always best to contact a pest control professional in order to deal with a flea infestation.
