Fleas in Your Home

Flea Control

Few other parasites are as difficult to control as fleas. Traditional attempts of controlling this pest on the pet revolved around an array of products like collars, sprays, powders and shampoos. In addition, household products such as light traps, sonic devices, and chemical foggers were also used. However, only a few lucky pet owners will claim to have completely and in long term conquered the annoying flea using any of these methods.

If your home is infested with fleas, you’re not alone. Each year, thousands of homeowners face the same problem. Fleas are not only a nuisance, but they can also transmit diseases to both humans and pets. If your dog or cat has fleas, you’re not alone. Many pet owners face the same problem. The good news is that there are steps you can take to remove fleas from your pet and your home.

Fleas are true parasites. They cannot reproduce without ingesting blood from a host for sustenance. Fleas have been in existence at least 50 million years. So far, over 2200 types of fleas have been identified. Some fleas are host specific, but others may infest many different species.

Although many varieties of fleas are known throughout the world, only a few species infest dogs and cats and with sufficient regularity to be of importance:

Fleas From Your Pets

  • Cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis)
  • Dog flea (Ctenocephalides canis)
  • Human flea (Pulex irritans)
  • Poultry sticktight flea (Echidnophaga gallinacea)

Professional treatment including integrated pest management, treatment of infested areas, and ongoing assistance by the homeowner is by far the best approach to effective and lasting flea control.

Treated my house for bedbugs. Pete was extremely patient and thorough in answering all my questions during this very stressful ordeal. I was so impressed w Pete that a few years later ended up working for him!

We called the 1st time for an ant problem. He responded quickly and professionally. We have continued to use him for all our pest needs. Unfortunately, he could not help us with our raccoon problem but he was able to give us guidance which helped solved the problem. We would never use anyone else for our pest control needs.

I used Pete's for Carpenter ants last year (the ants have never came back), and most recently for mice. Both times they were knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Tyler went above and beyond my expectations and I am so pleased with the service I have received both times.I highly recommend Pete's.

I’m so glad I called these guys! Ronda, Pete, and James were all knowledgeable and nice. We were able to schedule a bed bug extermination 3 days out, and they were always available to answer my questions. I will update this review after my second treatment.

I had a rat infestation ! Called Pete’s and I am grateful to say they were able to keep working with me until all were gone. Very professional, great follow up as well as finding all the openings in foundation that needed to be closed so this wouldn’t happen again. Very pleased to say no more critters!
