Fela Exterminators in the Greater Houston Area
Fleas usually attach themselves to common household pets such as dogs and cats. Once they have established a base of operations, they will start to bite humans. This can transmit illness to humans called cat flea rickettsiosis.
The easiest way to notice whether you have fleas in your home, besides getting bitten yourself, is when you start noticing your pets constantly itching and scratching themselves. A flea may spend its entire life feeding on your pet. Female fleas lay up to 50 eggs a day and the eggs hatch in under a week. All those eggs and new fleas make the problem very difficult to handle on your own.
Some pets even develop fleabite allergy dermatitis. This can send your pet into a fit of scratching and cause severe skin reaction. Fleas can also serve as hosts for tapeworms that can infest your pet when they groom themselves.
Ridding your home of fleas can be an involved process. We will help you every step of the way. The treatment recommendation will usually include a preparation list that includes vacuuming and other sanitation procedures and having pets treated for fleas by a veterinarian.
The technician will then treat your home with FDA approved products to eliminate the fleas as well as insect growth regulator products to keep them from returning. With your approval, we can also treat your yard to eliminate fleas in your lawn as well as other common hiding places.
