If you have noticed that your pet has been scratching, you are itchy yourself or you have bites on your body you may have a problem with fleas. Fleas are particularly difficult to eliminate due to their ability to reproduce very quickly. Females cannot lay eggs until they have consumed a blood meal, which will occur in the first 24-48 hours of their life. If your home is unoccupied, fleas can lay dormant until they sense the carbon dioxide and heat from a mammal such as you or your pet. Once you are sure that you have a flea infestation the first thing to do is to treat your pet through your veterinarian. The second step is to call Huron Pest Control Inc. so we can get started on eliminating this biting insect from your home.
