Believing in myths about flea control can lead to ineffective flea elimination procedures. This can also increase the severity of a flea infestation in your home. By learning the truth, you stand a better chance at keeping your home free of these parasitic insects. Here are some common myths about fleas.
- Myth: Fleas cannot survive without a host. Fleas can stay alive without blood for almost four days. This gives them plenty of time to reproduce and hatch their eggs in places like carpets. Fleas can also survive in moist areas in your backyard. With over 20 years of experience in pest control, we understand what it takes to keep your environment flea-free within a short time.
- Myth: A clean home always keeps fleas away. Keeping your house clean can help you identify potential flea infestations easily. However, this does not translate to a pest-free environment. Fleas can invade a clean home once they’ve come across your pets or clothes. By the time you start seeing these insects, chances are there is already a significant infestation in your house.
- Myth: DIY flea control projects are enough. DIY projects can be ineffective if you don’t have background knowledge on flea control. You often need two or more revisit treatments to eradicate fleas fully. As a result, this process can be tedious. Our team of professionals is well-trained in flea control procedures, saving you the DIY frustrations.
