Mosquitoes, Fleas, & Ticks

Flea Control Services in Chapel Hill, North Carolina

We Treat Mosquitoes & Ticks As Well

Adult fleas are small and without wings, measuring about a tenth of an inch. They are parasites that draw blood from a host (dogs, cats, rabbits, squirrels, rats, mice and other mammals). Although humans are not a preferred food source for fleas, they can and do bite us.

The adult flea is very prolific, with the female flea laying eggs with each blood meal. Although the flea egg may be deposited on the host, it will usually fall off or is shaken off and are frequently found in the animals bedding, furniture and cracks and crevices. Most eggs will hatch within two days.

Interior Flea Infestations

It is not necessary to have pets in the building in order to have a flea infestation. Since fleas can jump about 6 inches, they can easily hitch a ride on shoes, trousers, etc. Many vacationers who may have been unaware of the few adult fleas present in their home are often greeted and severely attacked by fleas upon their return. Even if the home has been empty for as long as six months or so, the eggs can remain dormant and will hatch upon return.

Flea control is a multi-step process. If there are animals in residence they must first be treated (refer to your veterinarian). The inside of the home is then treated. Before the technician treats, it is recommended that the floors are clear of any debris and vacuumed and/or mopped thoroughly. Also wash all bedding and linens. The outside of the home should also be treated to avoid any re-infestations.

Exterior Infestations

We perform yard spray treatments starting in the spring to combat fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and chiggers to help keep you, your loved ones, and your fur babies bite free. These treatments are performed by applying a fine mist of insecticide directly onto lawns and shaded areas where these pests like to hide out.

We recommend allowing approximately 2-4 hours for the spray to dry before allowing any pets or people to re-enter the treated area.
