As the winter season draws to an end, the flea season is just starting. Even if your home has been flea free during the cold months, you may have flea eggs in your carpet or home just waiting to hatch. If you don’t want a major flea infestation, then hiring a professional flea exterminator is the way to go.
Where Did The Fleas Come From?
If you have pets that go outdoors, then fleas may attach themselves to your animal and lay eggs. Once inside, the eggs fall off onto anywhere your pet wanders. Fleas can be carried in by people or on clothing too, especially if you have a lot of contact with animals. The eggs are so small that they aren’t easily vacuumed or swept up.
When The Eggs Hatch You’ll Want Help
Flea eggs can lay dormant when the weather is cold waiting for just the right time to hatch, which is when it’s warm and humid enough. Once they do hatch, they turn into small worm like creatures called larvae. The next step in the cycle is the pupae stage in which the larva cocoons itself in a protective sticky shell. Similar to the eggs, the flea pupae won’t emerge until the conditions are just right. When they do emerge from the cocoons as adult fleas, they can quickly infest your home. The female flea can start laying eggs after ingesting blood, thus starting the cycle over again.
Why You Should Hire A Professional Exterminator
If you have a flea-infested home, then the best way to get rid of these blood-sucking pests is by using a trained exterminator who will safely remove fleas from both inside and outside of your home. You could spend hundreds of dollars on flea sprays, medications and powders for your pet, but you need to rid your home of fleas instead.
