Fleas, these tiny, ubiquitous parasites found around the Dallas area, are more than just a nuisance. Known for their notorious tenacity, fleas pose a challenge to homeowners, regardless of whether they own pets or not. In this blog, we at Home Run Pest aim to equip you with the knowledge and strategies to effectively ward off these persistent pests with flea prevention.
Fleas: More Than Just a Pet Problem
A widely held myth about fleas is that they only infest homes with pets. Contrarily, your home can be flea-free and still fall prey to an infestation. Fleas can enter your yard through other pests like rats, rabbits, or gophers. Even a simple stroll in an infested park can unknowingly make you a carrier of flea eggs that attach to your shoes or the pesky pests that may decide to hitch a ride home with you.
Understanding the Flea Life Cycle: The Key to Effective Control
Eradicating fleas is not a straightforward task due to their four-stage life cycle. Unfortunately, no pesticides currently available on the market can effectively eliminate flea eggs. Therefore, pest control professionals must patiently wait for the eggs to hatch, exposing the fleas to growth regulators and pesticides.
The Importance of Pre-Service Preparation
One crucial step in preparing for professional flea service is to thoroughly vacuum all carpeted surfaces. This action will prompt the flea eggs embedded in the carpets to hatch, as fleas are attracted to the heat and motion of the vacuum cleaner.
Scheduling flea baths for your pets during your home treatment time is equally vital. Once treated, your pets will not reintroduce fleas into your home, ensuring the effectiveness of the pest control treatment.
