Ask a Lynn Pest Control Company: Flea Infestation

October 17, 2013

Can quickly go from small problem to large one



Any sort of flea problem can quickly go from being an irritant to your pet to a huge issue for your entire family. They can live in your clothing and furniture, your carpets, and several other areas of your home. Here are just some of the reasons you need to call Richie the Bug Man if you spot the signs of fleas in your home.

  1. You can be bitten several times from a single flea. If you are a “host” to a flea, it will continually feed upon you.
  2. A flea is almost impossible to kill by pinching or pounding them because they can flatten themselves completely as a defense mechanism.
  3. If you are allergic to flea bites, their saliva can cause a widespread rash.

Fleas commonly jump from pets to their owners’ bodies, clothes, shoes and socks. Their eggs can nestle into your furniture or carpeting. You may even unknowingly bring them into your home if you’ve been in another place that has an infestation. These insects are extremely resilient, being able to live in almost any environment that’s not too hot or cold.

Call Richie the Bug Man today if you ever have any sort of flea infestation.
