Today, We want to talk to you about one of the most annoying and persistent pests that can infest your home: fleas.

Fleas are small wingless insects that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals, such as dogs, cats, rodents, and even humans. They can cause a lot of problems for you and your pets, such as itching, allergic reactions, skin infections, and even transmit diseases like tapeworms and plague.

One of the most common questions we get from our customers is: how do I know if my pet has fleas? Well, there are some signs that you can look for, such as:

– Excessive scratching, biting, or licking of the skin
– Red or irritated skin
– Hair loss or bald patches
– Flea dirt (small black specks) on the fur or bedding
– Flea eggs (tiny white grains) on the fur or bedding
– Visible fleas on the pet or in the environment

If you notice any of these signs, you should act fast and contact us for a flea inspection and treatment. Fleas can multiply quickly and spread throughout your home if left untreated.

Fleas are very agile and can jump up to 8 inches high and 100 times their own body length. This means they can easily hitch a ride on your pets or your clothes and enter your home. Once inside, they can hide in carpets, furniture, bedding, and cracks and crevices. They can also lay eggs that can hatch into larvae and pupae, which are resistant to most insecticides.
