One of the most uncomfortable scenes to watch is your furry, four-legged best friend scratching themselves incessantly due to fleas embedded in their fur. Even worse, these tiny critters can transmit infections that everyone in your household can contract. 

Fortunately, Miche Pest Control provides the most effective pest control to completely eradicate a flea infestation in your home, keeping your family and pets comfortable, healthy, and safe. Our highly trained team conducts thorough property inspections to unearth every pest location or nesting site. Read on to learn more about these critters and why professional flea removal is the best route to eliminate them quickly.

How To Tell If You’re Dealing With A Flea Infestation In Your Home

If your home is infested with fleas, you may have noticed tiny dots resembling flecks of black pepper, which could be flea feces or flea dirt. This is a clear indicator that a flea infestation is in progress. Pay attention to your pet’s behavior. Are they aggressively scratching themselves all the time? Have you noticed red spots in their skin accompanied by some fur loss? This could be the result of flea bites. Make an appointment with your veterinarian to have your pet thoroughly examined. Then, call Miche Pest Control to schedule a comprehensive property inspection and treatment service.

Fleas Can Be Hazardous To The Health Of People And Pets

Isn’t it ironic that a tiny insect can be dangerous to something as significant as a human? That is the case when it comes to fleas. These pests carry a multitude of harmful diseases they can transmit to your family and pets, including: 

  • Flea-borne (murine) typhus

  • Tapeworms

  • Tungiasis

  • Flea allergy dermatitis

  • Tularemia

If you believe these critters have invaded your living spaces, contact a professional pest management company specializing in eliminating fleas.

Why It’s So Hard To Get Rid Of A Flea Infestation On Your Own

If you’ve bounced around trying do-it-yourself (D.I.Y.) methods to get rid of fleas, you may be doing yourself a disservice. Fleas are tough to eliminate for various reasons. During certain stages of their life cycle, fleas are resistant to pesticides. Destroying these insects requires multiple follow-up treatment applications within 5 to 10 days after the first. Most people don’t understand that successful flea eradication depends on getting rid of all the eggs, larvae, and pupa left behind and not just focusing on eliminating the adult fleas. Remember, fleas can lay up to 50 eggs a day, so if they survive, it’s inevitable that a new infestation will erupt.

If you want to obliterate fleas for good, enlist the services of a qualified pest control company to perform professional treatments that’ll get the job done right the first time.
