Keeping Your Home Flea-Free

Home Business
Fleas can be pretty irritating, especially if they end up giving you Lyme disease. Also, people can develop severe allergic attacks from their bites. Furthermore, just imagine transferring your pet's blood straight into your own bloodstream. You don't have to imagine it; fleas do this job for you by hopping from a pet's skin right onto your own. You are basically sharing a needle with your pet. Sharing a bed with a pet is unsanitary enough!

When fleas are so small and sneaky, it can seem impossible to keep them out of your home. It's as if they know they shouldn't be there and sneak in anyway like rotten teenagers looking for trouble. Pest control in Falmouth can rid you of fleas and all their little eggs and larvae, too. Killing them once they have moved in is easy; preventing their invasion, though, is the tough part. How do you keep a few tiny bugs from ever slipping through your door? Here are a few tips:

• Almost 80% of the fleas inside of a home are eggs and larvae. That's right, your home could contain pre-fleas that can burst into adult form and get to blood-sucking at any moment. While there are homemade flea killers that use detergent traps or salt trays to kill adults, there is not a single home remedy for the eggs and larvae. How do you trap something that doesn't move?

• Sanitation around your home can help prevent flea infestations. Because carpet, rugs, and certain blankets resemble thick pet hair to fleas, they will often gravitate toward them. Be sure to vacuum these areas regularly. Clean and dust sheets, ruffles, and throws often, too.

• The importance of dusting cannot be understated. Fleas will turn to dust particles and loose hair as hiding spots and will in turn lay their eggs there. Fleas will even make their pupae or cocoons out of this debris. Do not give them the chance. Get rid of their building materials before they can get to work with them.

• Pets are lovable, and fleas agree. If you have a pet, you will have to target the areas where they rest and sleep. Clean these areas twice as often as the areas only you frequent. Also, try to get your pet in the habit of sleeping in a single pet bed or cushion. This will make it easy for you to shake off, dust, and clean the bed regularly.

• Keep your yard free of tall shrubs and grasses. Fleas are small enough to hide in manicured grass, so they are not the issue here. The real problem is that tall grasses are good hiding spots for flea-bitten rodents like mice and squirrels. As fleas reproduce, they will spread out and lay eggs everywhere they go. The more you allow wild animals into your property, the more likely you are to allow fleas to lay eggs in your yard.

• Keep your pet safe from becoming a blood buffet by investing in great flea medicine. Not only will this prevent future flea infestations, it will kill the fleas and eggs that currently reside on your pet.

• Flea medications are usually not safe for humans, but hopefully you shower or bathe regularly. That is your self-protection against fleas. Always shower after being outdoors for an extended period of time, especially if you decided to be free-spirited and lie in the grass. As gross as it sounds, you might have flea eggs on your skin or in your hair when you come in from the outdoors. Washing clean gets rid of any fleas that may have traveled on your body and rinses away eggs.

If you begin to notice red, itchy bumps on your skin or notice your pets scratching often, take care of a possible flea infestation immediately by contacting pest control in Falmouth. With the above tips, you can do what you can to prevent them from coming back.
