Fleas are pests that can be controlled by your Broken Arrow Pest Control company. Fleas are blood-sucking insects that attack our pets. Being that these pets are loved ones, and just as much a part of the family as anyone else, it’s very important that we take care of this issue before it gets out of hand. Fleas are insects that can spread diseases not only to your pets, but also to you if they bite you as well. Keeping fleas out of your home, yard, and the coat of your fur baby is a high priority. So this article is a good way to look at fleas, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow pest control company can do to protect yourself, and your loved ones from these insects. 

Additionally, it’s crucial to understand the potential health risks associated with flea infestations to effectively mitigate their impact on your household.

Flea life cycle and Broken Arrow pest control

Please use a complete metamorphosis when it comes to developing. They start as an egg laid on the base of a hair follicle. The hose animal will feel these eggs on their fur and begin to scratch. As they do, these egg sacks will break loose and fall off onto the ground. Usually, this happens around the animals, bedding, or in a high-traffic area. 

Once these eggs have landed somewhere, they will wait until they sense heat and vibration nearby, indicating the presence of a host animal. Then they’ll break loose and emerge as a larva. This worm-like structure will search for food anywhere it can find it. The favorite food of the larva is flea dirt, or the droppings of the adult flea that fall off the host animal. Eventually, the flea larva will pupate or create a cocoon around itself, in order to develop into a full grown adult. It will wait in the cocoon until it feels that heat and vibration again and then come out as an adult. Contact your Broken Arrow pest control company for help on these pests. 

Controlling fleas

Controlling fleas can make it somewhat difficult to keep their numbers in check. Fleas are protected from pesticides at any time in their life cycle when they’re encased. This means that when they’re in their egg or pupa form, pesticides can’t do anything to eliminate them. So what generally happens is someone will treat their home and have some peace for a week or two. But then a second generation will show up, and they’ll have to treat again. These are the eggs and larvae that have now hatched. It’s important to keep treating them over and over again to keep pressure on these insects. Contact your Broken Arrow pest control company for help with fleas. Additionally, incorporating preventative measures, such as regular vacuuming and grooming of pets, can complement professional treatment efforts and aid in long-term flea control.
