North Shore Flea Elimination Services


You want your home to be a safe haven for your family and pets.  But if you have a problem with flea elimination, it can cause significant discomfort and health issues for everyone in the home.  Having a flea infestation problem, can overtake your home, causing extreme discomfort for you, your family and pets.  Fleas may start off living in your pet’s fur, causing them to scratch incessantly.  But they can also take up residence in your carpets, furniture and clothing. 

  • Fleas look like tiny black dots that pop from place to place.  They are capable of flattening themselves completely, so pinching them or pounding them with swatters or shoes will not kill them.
  • In addition to causing intense itching, flea saliva can also cause an allergic reaction for some people that appears as a wide-spread rash.
  • Fleas jump onto their victims, burrowing into their fur or clothing, allowing the fleas  to travel around with their hosts and continually feed.  You can receive multiple bites from one flea.

What Causes Flea Infestation?

Fleas live outside in grass and leaves, but at the slightest sensation or touch of a mammal’s presence, they jump onto their victim and stay there.  Fleas can jump onto shoes, socks and clothing, as well as into the fur of your pets.  Flea eggs tend to drop off to land in your carpet or furniture.  You, yourself, may unwittingly bring fleas into your home by carrying them from any place that has a flea infestation problem.  Once attached to their food source, fleas will stay there until they are scratched off, die of old age or are removed in some other way.  Fleas can live in almost any environment except full sun or extreme cold.

Bozarjian Pest Control Flea Elimination

Richie “The Bug Man” Bozarjian, proprietor of Bozarjian Pest Control, will inspect your home to confirm your pest problem is fleas, then go over specific treatment options.  The first step in flea removal is thoroughly cleaning and vacuuming the entire home, paying special attention to carpeting, upholstery, furniture, pet bedding and other low-lying areas of the home.  Infected pets should be seen by the vet to have flea removal baths and/or to start a flea prevention program.  These measures are very important in conjunction with the Bozarjian Pest Control flea removal system.

Treatment options include:

  • Flea Misting or “Bombing”:  Bozarjian Pest Control uses flea bombs containing the chemical IGR which prevents fleas from reaching reproductive age.  Misting is essential as fleas can attach to  anything and everything inside the home.  We set enough bombs to mist the entire home, so families will need to make arrangements for themselves and their pets to be out of the home for the duration of the flea misting treatment.
  • Home Vacuuming Regimen:  Once the treatment has been fully completed, the homeowner needs to maintain a regular daily vacuuming schedule to ensure all fleas are removed from the home.
