Fleas are a type of parasite that feeds on a host source, such as animals. Commonly found on pets and wildlife, fleas multiply quickly and if left untreated can become an overwhelming issue. Fleas have a four-stage life cycle, and this impacts recommended treatment methods. Eggs are laid on pets and ultimately end up on bedding, furniture, and carpets. Adult fleas are responsible for fleabites, where developing fleas are in more of a dormant stage, feeding and ultimately transforming through into an adult. Products such as Ultracide, Precor 2000, Precor, Talstar, and Tengard can eliminate the fleas and their larvae. These flea treatments are also ideal for outdoor areas, since fleas are commonly picked up when pets are outside, and are then transported into your home. Proper flea control during high-activity months is likely to reduce the risk of infestation or re-infestation.
Alternative treatment methods for fleas include flea traps, flea baits, foggers, bug bombs, aerosols and insect growth regulators. In addition, e-Pest Solutions also offers products that can be applied onto your pets as well. Flea kits are available for convenience and can assist in easy, efficient elimination of these common household pests.
