Fleas are small, reddish-brown bugs that make their way into your home by attaching themselves to your pets. When your cat or dog brings in a flea or two into your home, it can quickly become an infestation if not dealt with professionally and quickly. Fleas have a short lifespan of 100 days. But, in those 100 days they can lay up to 500 eggs. Once these eggs hatch you will have a huge problem on your hands. This is why we recommend calling a professional flea control company when you notice fleas in or around your home. Here are four things you should know about an experienced, professional flea control company.
- Safe – A professional flea control company will know how to properly use the chemicals to treat fleas in a way that is safe for you, your family, and your pets. Many DIY chemicals if used incorrectly can be harmful to you and your pets.
- Effective – A professional will be able to effectively rid your home of all fleas. Many professionals also offer guarantees on their work. You won’t find that with DIY treatments.
- Indoor and outdoor – A professional exterminator will be able to help you find and eliminate all of your flea infestations that are indoor and outdoor.
- Price – There is a greater upfront cost to hiring a professional exterminator, but it will save you in the long run. Most often a professional will take care of your flea infestation in one appointment. With other DIY treatments you will most likely need to keep making purchases of at-home treatments get rid of the fleas.
