How You Can Get Fleas Without Pets

It’s a common myth that you can only get a flea infestation in your home if you have dogs, cats, or other pets. In truth, many people suffer from fleas who have never owned a pet a day in their life. Here are some of the reasons how this can happen to you:

There are many ways this can happen. Sometimes it can be as simple as a new homeowner or renter discovering fleas left by the previous owner/renter. Flea problems can often go unnoticed at first and when they are not dealt with by a previous tenant, they will end up being your problem instead. 

But fleas can also happen to existing homeowners and renters as well. If your home has or neighborhood has a pest problem with rats, mice, opossums, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, or other animals, they can carry fleas and easily infect your property. Even neighborhood cats and dogs that come in contact with your home can leave behind fleas and quickly cause an infestation. 

Fleas can also travel on people as well as pets since they love to hitch rides on clothes and shoes. These wingless insects may as well be able to fly since they can jump up to 6 feet in the blink of an eye. It’s very easy for them to jump on you when you’re away from you home and travel with you all the way back to your property. 

All in all, it’s not too difficult to find yourself with a flea infestation. What is difficult, is getting rid of them. Fleas move fast and can quickly take over your home no matter how clean it is. If you find yourself with a flea problem, you need to move quickly!

Flea Treatment
from 185.00

Don't let FLEAS take over! They may be wingless, but since they can jump up to 6 feet in the blink of an eye, it's almost like they can fly. They love to hitch a ride on pets like cats and dogs, but can also travel via clothes and shoes.

This service includes a complete inspection of the interior and exterior of the property by one of our licensed technicians to find out the causes and conditions of the infestation. When problem areas are found a technician will proceed to a residual-type treatment that includes:

 

Interior treatment of the structure (living room, bathroom, bedrooms) with a residual product that includes an insect growth regulator to prevent any further infestation. In addition, the interior is also treated with a fogger type product with a flushing agent to eliminate all present fleas on contact, giving a fast flea control.

Exterior service includes treatment of lawn, under bushes, trees, planters, etc. (exterior treatment will vary depending on the type of structure). This product and treatment is also labeled to work for general pests (ants, roaches, spider, earwigs, crickets and beetles). In addition, sub areas will be treated with an organic, residual dust-product for longer control (Product will be applied to structures with raised foundations only).

 

At the time of purchased treatment, a detailed report with the causes or conditions found will be provided with a recommendation to prevent any future infestation by a professional licensed technician.

This service includes a 30-day control period. In that time frame, you must allow 1 week for the product to work at 100%. If you are still having problems after this time, we will send a licensed technician to service the property at no additional charge.

NOTE: If the property is bigger than what is described over the phone (or online), the price may change once a licensed technician arrives on site.
