This is the time of year when fleas become a lot more active and noticeable. In the southeastern states, fleas can develop from an egg to an adult in just 2 weeks! That’s when they start looking for a blood meal – like you or your pet.
To keep fleas out, you should thoroughly clean your premises and arrange for pet treatments. If your home is going to be treated for fleas,make sure you remove toys and objects from the floor, and then vacuum all areas, especially areas around baseboards and the dark areas under cushions and chair pads near pet rest areas. Be sure to mow your lawn before outdoor treatments. If you’re having trouble controlling fleas in and around your home,contact Massey Services for a free, detailed inspection today.
