It may not be possible to determine for sure which insect is the most difficult to remove from your home, but you would have to think that the flea would be near the top of the list. Roaches are crafty, quick, and they reproduce prolifically. By contrast, fleas also produce rapidly and in great numbers, but what they lack in craftiness, they more than make up for by being tiny. EcoTech is equipped to rid your home of fleas.
How Fleas Get In Your Home
In most cases, fleas get into your home on the backs of pets. Even people who frequently bathe their dogs, cats, or other indoor/outdoor animals can end up with a flea infestation. If your dog rolls around in your backyard or at a dog park, they can pick up an unwanted flea. Many of the fleas that hop onto your dog in the yard or at the dog park may succumb to the flea treatments your dog has received, but if a few may fall off before being affected by the flea treatment, those surviving fleas embed themselves in your carpet and begin to search for food.
Fleas are small enough to go unnoticed, at least until you begin itching. You realize that what your itching is a small, red welt—it cannot be a mosquito bite, you think, because it’s so small. Next, you may consider that it could be allergies—allergies sometimes result in hives, but then you realize it is not allergy season and, furthermore, you are not sneezing, you are only itching. And then it dawns on you that it could be a biting insect. Your eye then trains in on your dog and the carpet and, soon enough, you spot one of those tiny, ugly critters who has been biting your skin and causing you to itch.
Safe Extermination of Fleas in MN
Some people are not so lucky. Flea bites usually cause only minor itching, as described above, but for some people their allergic reaction can be more severe. However severe your reaction may be, flea infestation is not to be taken lightly. And there is at least one certainty about fleas that enter your home—they do not leave spontaneously or voluntarily. A flea infestation problem can happen quickly. It is important that you contact a professional extermination service for assistance as soon as you notice a problem.
We recommend that you resist the temptation to treat your flea problem with store-bought insecticides. Trust the professionals at EcoTech for safe extermination of fleas. Call us at (612) 237-8282 if you think that you might have a flea problem in your home.
