Do You Have A Flea Problem?
Fleas are definitely one of the pests people dread the most, causing irritating bites and carrying disease causing bacteria.
Fleas are very small parasites that live off the blood of pets and humans and can cause itchy red skin irritations from their bites. Pets can easily become infested with fleas that may unnoticed for weeks. Fleas can easily become a significant infestation very quickly.
Fleas are a particularly annoying pest as they can infest all areas of your home including carpets, cracks in floorboards, clothing, furniture, bedding and lawns. Fleas are known disease carriers and while flea transmitted diseases are not as common as they once were, there are still instances of individuals becoming ill with murine typhus or endemic typhus due to a flea bite. A reaction to fleas that is fairly common in dogs and cats is flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Pets who have this condition are allergic to the saliva of fleas and develop extremely uncomfortable skin conditions and requires veterinary treatment.

What Happens After The Flea Treatment?
After the initial flea pest control treatment the adults generally die within the first few days. Even though the adults have died it can take seven to fourteen days to control a flea infestation as the eggs are resistant to any treatments and must hatch before they can be exterminated.
