You need to contact a Broken Arrow exterminator immediately if you think you have fleas in your home. Fleas are a parasitic insect the feed on the blood of many different kinds of mammals. They love to attack our pets specifically, our dogs and our cats. The dog flea here in the United States, is prevalent pretty much in all 50 states. These insects cannot only make your life uncomfortable for you and your pets, but they can also pass many different diseases on to you. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at fleas, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow exterminators can do to protect yourself from these insects.
FLEA LIFECYCLE AND BROKEN ARROW EXTERMINATOR
When trying to get rid of fleas, their lifecycle takes a major role in eliminating these insects from your home or yard. Fleas use a complete metamorphosis where they go through four distinct phases to their lifecycle. Adult fleas will lay eggs on the base of a piece of fur on its host animal. As the host animal scratches, these eggs will fall off somewhere around their bedding or in high traffic areas. From here, the eggs will hatch and a larva will emerge. This worm like Insect will feed on anything you can find, including the droppings of adult fleas. As it grows eventually it gets to the point where it’s time to pupate. It will use hair and dirt around it, and create a cocoon in which it can develop into the full grown adult. Then the adult will emerge from the pupa.
The reason this is important for us as exterminators, is because pesticides are incapable of affecting them when they’re in their egg or a pupa state. Often people get frustrated because they treat their home for fleas and then enjoy a time of reprieve from these bloodsucking insects. But then they come back. Because of this, a good Broken Arrow exterminator will know they’ll need to schedule multiple treatments in order to take care of every generation of flea. Contact your Broken Arrow exterminator for more help, and make sure to take a look at our reviews.
While it is possible to buy over-the-counter solutions for flea issues, contacting your Broken Arrow exterminator is the best option. They will work with you and your veterinary to come up with the best solution for your situation. Flea treatments break down into three different areas. The first is your pet. You’ll need to get with your veterinarian and get your pet on a flea program as soon as possible. The second place is inside your home. If you’re having a problem with fleas in your home, you’ll need to have your Broken Arrow exterminator treat the inside of your home for fleas. And lastly, if you have an excessive amount of fleas outside your home, then it may be time for an outdoor yard treatment as well
