Fleas

An itch you can never seem to scratch.

What Fleas Do In Your Home

Fleas are very tiny creatures, the adults average 1/8th of an inch in size. They have a flat body from side to side, with piercing mouths that help them in sucking blood. Fleas are often confused with bed bugs, lice and ticks. However, fleas are reddish brown to black in appearance, and they are also wingless.

Fleas feed on blood, and a flea can live without a blood meal for 100 days. A female flea can lay 2,000 eggs in her lifetime, quickly leading to flea infestation problems. Animals that live in your home, like dogs and cats, can easily bring fleas into your house. Fleas live on pets, in carpets, in sofas, and in or on other household and farm goods. In a typical room, 5 percent of the fleas will be found on pets, 10 percent flea cocoons in the carpets, 35 percent flea larvae and 50 percent flea eggs, again in the carpets. This can make it difficult for DIY flea removal. Don’t delay giving us a call as flea infestations only get worse with time. We can schedule one of our licensed professionals to provide you with a free inspection estimate and educate you about flea treatment and flea control.
