Keep Your Pets Safe by Preventing Fleas in Your Home

Posted on: December 5, 2018, in Blog

Nobody wants their home to be infested with fleas. As they rely on blood to survive, fleas will often venture indoors in order to find hosts to feed on. Bites from fleas often leave itchy and swollen marks, with the potential for allergic diseases being transferred. While they will often bite humans, furry pets are most at risk when it comes to these pesky pets. This is because they are able to hide easier once they have attached to fur. For the aforementioned reasons, it is vital that you do your best to prevent fleas in your home. By implementing the following helpful tips, you will be better positioned to control an infestation on your own.

3 Tips to Prevent a Flea Infestation

  1. Clean your home thoroughly to eliminate larvae. The best method of prevention is to vacuum your entire house regularly as this will uplift a lot of the invisible flea eggs that have dropped off the pets as they move around. Make sure to your vacuum bag often as well to stop further spreading of the eggs.
  2. Spray your yard with commercial spray. As fleas originate from outside, it is very important you do your best to stop the fleas before they go indoors. Store bought deterrents, can be highly effective in killing the fleas before they enter your home.
  3. Get rid of existing fleas on your pets. As fleas love to feed on furry animals the most, treating your pets with a product from the veterinarian is the best thing you can do once fleas have been identified. Removing them from the host will stop reproduction occurring entirely if done right.

With all this in mind, there is still a chance that an infestation may persist beyond your best efforts. It is at this point that we recommend contacting us for our effective flea control solutions.
