Flea Pest Control FAQs

What do fleas look like?

Fleas are tiny, reddish-brown insects with flattened bodies that typically measure about 2.5 mm in length. They have a shiny appearance and powerful legs for jumping. Pet owners may notice flea droppings resembling black pepper on their pets' fur or bedding, along with excessive scratching and visible bites on the skin. If you suspect a flea infestation, it's advisable to seek professional flea pest control services for accurate identification and effective treatment.

Where do fleas live?

Fleas prefer to live in humid, shady areas, although they can thrive in a variety of climates. In the wild they will typically live in debris piles, shrubs, tall grass, weeds, and wood piles. Around the outside of homes and businesses, they may live in places like dog houses, sheds, garages, and outdoor furniture. On dogs or cats, they tend to keep to the back, belly, and neck areas. Flea eggs do not stick to the host, and can therefore easily fall off and land anywhere. Once those eggs hatch, the fleas will infest anywhere in homes and businesses that regularly have human or pet activity.

Why do I have a flea problem?

Fleas are incredible jumpers, and can jump great lengths from ground-level to attach onto their host. This makes it easy for fleas to attach to animals while they are outside and subsequently infest the animal’s fur and sleeping area. When a host carries one or two fleas into the house, it is not long before others follow. Female fleas are known to produce multiple eggs in as little as 48 hours after feeding on their hosts. Since flea eggs are not attached to the host, they can hatch almost anywhere around a home or business. Fleas are also notorious for jumping from one host to another, which is one reason they spread so quickly once inside. Fleas can also be brought inside on used items like furniture or rugs.

When are fleas active?

Fleas are most active during warmer weather, especially in temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In warm states, like Florida, flea season is year round. In areas that experience cold winters, flea season is typically between March and December. Fleas will die out when cold weather arrives unless they have a host to keep them warm.

Can pest control get rid of fleas?

Yes, our professional pest control for fleas is highly effective in eliminating flea infestations. Our trained technicians employ specialized treatments designed to target fleas at all stages of their life cycle, ensuring thorough eradication and preventing future outbreaks.

What’s the best way to prevent a flea infestation?

One way to prevent fleas from entering a home or business is by inspecting your clothing and running a comb through your pet’s fur before returning inside. Keeping long-haired coats trimmed also helps. All pets should either wear a flea collar or, under the guidance of a veterinarian, be treated with a flea and tick preventative such as flea spray, flea medicines or flea shampoos. All bedding, both pet, and human, should be washed regularly, and all carpets and upholstered furniture should be vacuumed on a regular basis. Eliminating outdoor habitats can greatly reduce the risk of fleas entering a home or business. If you believe you have a flea infestation, call Twin Boro today to schedule your free home inspection.
