Protect Your Home From Fleas!

Fleas are a very common issue for any home that has pets. Even if you do not have pets yourself, friends or family that have pets can leave behind some very unwanted guests. Local wild animal such as birds, foxes, rabbits, and mice, can also pose a threat, by carrying fleas or other pests to your home or backyard.

The biggest threat that fleas can cause in your home or business, comes from their bites. Although flea bites are not painful, they can cause rashes or uncomfortable itchiness. Fleas are parasites that feed on other animals, and thus can carry many harmful diseases.

If you notice anyone, or any pets, that have developed a rash or are constantly itching, you may have fleas in your home or business. Get rid of your flea problem by contacting the experts at West County Pest Control Today!

Fleas can make pets' lives miserable, and humans begin to itch just at the thought of them. Controlling a flea infestation requires treating your pets, the inside of your home, and flea activity sites outside all at the same time.

Appearance 

Tiny, about 1/6" in length; reddish brown and flattened.

Habitat 

Fleas live on the bodies of animals and feed on their blood. Because fleas usually feed and lay their eggs while an animal is sleeping, your pet’s resting area is where the most fleas will be found. Pets get fleas from being outside in the yard.
