When a home has pets, fleas and ticks can often become a problem. Although they prefer to feed on animals, they will also feed on humans when given the opportunity. While fleas do not threaten a person’s life, ticks can lead to Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Tick Paralysis, among others. When fleas and ticks are present in a home, a homeowner needs to seek the professionals for flea & tick extermination services. Prompt treatment can remove these pests so the occupants of a home are no longer in danger.

Sometimes, it takes a professional to remove fleas and ticks because they are so hard to kill with DIY approaches. Fleas are fast and can jump so high, they can often avoid pesticides that are put out to kill off a population. When a home is treated, it is imperative all of the pets in the home are treated as well so the problem can be fully eradicated. Only treating the home or the pets will simply allow the pests to continue to thrive.

When a professional comes in to treat a property, all pets and humans will need to be removed from the home. The pesticides not only kill the adult population, they also destroy the eggs and larvae. The problem with DIY extermination is the treatments typically only kill the adult population, allowing the larvae and eggs to mature and become adults so the problem perpetuates. These professional flea & tick extermination services allow for the complete removal of the pests in a home.

After a home has been treated, a chemical barrier will be put down so these pests will not reenter the home and cause an infestation again. It is imperative pet owners are proactive and keep their pets properly treated so they will not bring in more pests.
