Fleas

flea

Fleas are blind and are typically found in dark, warm areas near a food source. They go through four life cycle stages of egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The adult must feed on blood before they are able to reproduce. Fleas lay approximately 20 eggs at a time, typically on the host. These eggs often roll off the host, thus areas where the host sleeps often become hotspots for flea development. If ingested by pets, fleas can produce segmented tapeworms that can be seen in pets’ fresh stools.

Ban-A-Pest uses top-notch products such as NyGuard® IGR to effectively control a flea infestation.

BEFORE THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN ARRIVES

Make sure that any and all pets have been treated for fleas and that items and clutter (excluding furniture) has been removed from floors, closets, and storage areas.

AFTER THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN LEAVES

The key to flea control is to eliminate flea hotspots in and around the home. Vacuuming all carpeting daily will help control flea infestation. Wash all pet bedding regularly. This will not only reduce the flea population but it will also reduce flea offspring. Clean wood and tile floors, paying special attention to baseboards, grooves and cracks. Take flea control measures with any pets. Mow the lawn regularly and keep it free from debris. Sweep any porches and decks.
