Do you have a flea infestation?
In the summer months fleas can become quite numerous, coming into the house on beloved pets or on invading rodents. If you have pets that go outside or spend time with other animals, they may unknowingly carry fleas into your home. Fleas quickly reproduce, and before you know it, you have a flea infestation in your home that warrants pest control. Fleas can easily hide in carpet and upholstery, and they live and breed in warm, moist places. Knoxville and Lenoir TN can become a utopia for these little blood suckers. It’s quite unnerving to see fleas jumping onto your furniture, and it’s even more frustrating to find that you’ve been bitten!
Signs of Fleas
The signs of a flea infestation are pretty straightforward. You will see fleas hopping onto drapery, furniture, or carpet. You may also see their dotty bodies in your pet’s fur, and you will most likely notice that your pets are scratching, licking, or biting their fur nonstop. If the infestation is not dealt with and your pets not treated, they may acquire painful scabs or lose their fur in places. Also, some tapeworms use fleas as their hosts, so your animal may be more susceptible to tapeworms as well. Places to look to determine if you have fleas include bedding in your home (yours and your pet’s), furniture, dog houses, places where pets live, and other locations your animal frequently visits. If you find evidence of fleas, it is best to start searching for pest control companies near me to find an exterminator that can help.
Causes of Flea Infestation
Any area that is warm and moist is extremely attractive to fleas. They live on the outside of a host in order to suck their blood. Areas of the world where it is humid or moist will draw them by the thousands. They can enter through the garden and on your pets and yard. Be sure to check yourself and your pets to make sure you are not inadvertently carrying fleas.
Flea Control Companies in Knoxville TN
Once a flea infestation has begun, you best bet is to call our flea control experts at All Pest Exterminating. The pest control cost is well worth it since fleas are insidious and can even numb your skin before biting. Once the problem is there, chances are, much of your home has been contaminated by these dirty pests. You can do much on your own to rid yourself of fleas, but it is a long, frustrating process best guided by professional exterminators.
If the fleas continue reproducing after you have removed all loose items from your home to disinfect, have washed or replaced pet bedding, have applied treatment to the floors, and (of course) have treated your pets – you have an out-of-control-flea infestation that requires a certified pest company. As soon as you call us, we will make sure you’ve taken all these prior steps – laundering, vacuuming, and going through your home to find some trouble spots. When we arrive on the scene, we take care of applying the treatment to your home’s floors and outside around the perimeter of your home or other places where you or your pets spend time. We work with flea treatments that are designed to kill fleas and developing fleas at first contact. We also use insect growth regulators to cause larval fleas to be unable to reach maturity. These treatments will drastically reduce the number of fleas in your home. However, you may still see some fleas from time to time that have not yet found the insecticide that will kill them.
We also work with customers to develop a regular Knoxville TN pest control maintenance plan tailored to their specific needs in order to keep your home free of fleas as well as other annoying pests such as spiders, cockroaches, bees and wasps, rodents, and more! Check with us to see if any of our monthly, quarterly, bi-annual, or annual plans work for you.
