Fleas are most commonly found in homes with pet dogs or cats. Many pet owners use flea medications on their animals to attempt to deal with fleas in Tigard. Although these medications can be effective as a preventative measure, they will not solve an existing flea problem in your home. Do-it-yourself methods are generally ineffective for dealing with a large infestation.
Fleas are more than an annoyance that is challenging to eradicate. Flea bites cause red, swollen spots that are itchy and can become infected. In addition to flea bites, these pests can pose serious risks to people and their pets. Fleas are known vectors of a variety of viruses, bacteria, and parasites.
Flea borne diseases include:
- Anemia and iron deficiency
- Lyme disease
- Parasitic dermatitis
Fleas often get inside the house on a pet. These pests can be carried by domestic and wild animals, so they can get into your yard on animals that are passing by. Your pet can also pick up fleas at the vet, groomer, a kennel, doggie daycare, or even on a normal walk around the neighborhood. An infestation can be started by just a few fleas since they breed rapidly.
Unfortunately, a flea infestation can become a serious problem before you notice them. Most homeowners first notice a flea problem when they see a flea on their pet or wake up with bites in the morning. Fleas are great at hiding under your pet’s fur and can also be found in carpets and pet bedding. Eliminating fleas involves treating your pet and your home to ensure the pests are fully eradicated.
The best thing you can do when you discover fleas in your home is to call a pest control professional. A certified pest control technician is equipped to find and eliminate fleas, regardless of the size of the infestation. Your flea control specialist can conduct an inspection of your home to get an idea of the extent of the infestation and develop a personalized treatment plan.
At Tough Bug Solutions, we understand the possible threats that fleas pose to humans and pets and the urgency of swift action. Our technicians will conduct a thorough inspection and provide reliable advice about eliminating fleas in Tigard. We use the best quality products that are effective for eliminating fleas and offer periodic treatments to keep them from coming back.
