Houston Flea Treatment
Houston's Biggest Little Pest
Metro Houston is flea country: our warm temperatures throughout much of the year allow fleas to be active most of the time. And fleas can prove to be more than just a pet problem. Although pets are often the source of flea infestations, they aren’t always the cause. While you should certainly use proper methods to control fleas on your pets, that may not be enough.
Fleas can become established in your home or yard, living in grass, drapes, carpet, or bedding. Fortunately, BUGCO’s pest control experts provide both indoor and outdoor flea treatment to protect your family and your pets.
A Pest to Pets and People Too
Because of their tiny size and egg-laying habits, fleas can be hard to observe firsthand and even harder to eradicate. It is essential to do so, however, as they feed on the blood of mammals such as dogs, cats, and humans. They even smell you out by the carbon dioxide on your breath. Their bites are itchy and can potentially spread disease or even other parasites.
Generally, they will be found in places where they have easy access to their food sources – furniture, blankets, pet bedding, or outdoor spots where your pets spend time. And, of course, they will live in fur or clothing if they can. They’ll usually avoid places with a lot of foot traffic or sun exposure.
We offer both exterior and interior treatments for flea control. When we treat the interior of your home, we ask that you, your family, and your pets vacate the home for three to four hours after our visit. You should also clear your floors of any clothes and toys before the treatment. When we treat the exterior and yard of your home, you must keep your pets off the grass whenever it is wet for a few days after treatment.
We can combine a yard treatment for pests like ants and mosquitoes with our yard treatment for fleas and other general pest control treatments. Additionally, we offer a multi-service discount if you have us perform both interior and exterior services.
