Flea Infestation – What You Need to Know

While fleas are more active during the summer, they can invade, and thrive, throughout the year. This is especially true for homeowners with pets that have access to the outdoors, even for a short time. You don’t have to own a pet to have fleas as outdoor wildlife such as squirrels, possums, raccoons, rats, and mice, are also hosts to the tiny biters.

If fleas are active outdoors, they can easily jump on you or your pet and have immediate access to your home or business. Once established inside, fleas have easy access to an unending food source – you, your family, and your pets, and for business owners, your customers, and clients.

You’ll also be faced with a flea problem that, if left unchecked, will lead to a never-ending cycle of new fleas. One female flea has the ability to lay an estimated 50 eggs per day. Multiply that by 10 females, and you have 500 fleas hopping, jumping, and biting around the clock.

When to Get Professional Help for Fleas

While over-the-counter flea sprays and flea bombs may provide some relief, it never eliminates your flea problem. Because these products fall short in killing flea eggs,  it will only be a short time before they will hatch and mature leaving hundreds of fleas to emerge and infest your home, business, and outdoor areas. Before allowing the vicious cycle to keep repeating itself, you need the services of a professional pest control service for fleas.

Keep in mind the cost of over-the-counter products for your home and pet can get expensive, plus if you attempt to rid the fleas on your own, chances are the infestation won’t be eliminated and the flea problem will start again.

With a plan backed by experience and the right solution, getting, and keeping, an infestation under control, both indoors and outdoors, is what to expect from an experienced pest control service like RPC Pest Solutions.
