Fleas & Flea Control
If you have dogs or cats, there is a chance they could bring fleas into your home. Fleas are parasites that feast on blood from your pet. They also feed on the blood of humans. Fleas will suck out the blood after piercing the skin. Flea bites are not painful to humans, but they can cause irritation and, in some cases, lead to infection or the transfer of parasites, including tapeworms.
Pest Control for Fleas
Pest control for fleas will focus heavily on carpets, where fleas are known to lay their eggs. Manning’s Pest Control recommends vacuuming your carpets before treatment can begin using a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide. This insect growth regulator will help stop the development of eggs and larvae. Your dog or cat will also need to be washed regularly with a shampoo that contains a flea control product.
