Flea Season Is Here

FleasIt seems like flea season came early this year here in New Orleans. Our fairly mild Winter might be to blame for the problem. With the warmer temperatures, fleas appear to be out in full force. If you are from here, you know this is only the beginning. Here in New Orleans, flea control tends to be a year-round battle.

Fleas & Pets

All pets can get fleas, even healthy ones. If your pet goes outside you need to treat it for fleas. Fleas usually enter houses on pets. Keep in mind, even a treated pet can still bring fleas into your home. Fleas tend to make their homes in or on carpets, bedding, pet beds, and upholstered furniture. Keeping your home spotless isn’t a guarantee you won’t get fleas. Flea eggs and larvae can also hide in the cracks of laminated floors. Fleas can also hitch a ride on your clothing and enter your home that way.

What To Do If You Have Fleas

If you find fleas in your home, you need to act quickly. Clean your home thoroughly! Sweep tile or wood floors, and vacuum carpets, rugs, and furniture. Spray carpets and upholstery. Since fleas like to hide in dark places, spray under furniture and in crevices. Consider fogging your house.  Be prepared that this will be a long battle. Depending on the environmental temperature and humidity levels, the total life cycle of fleas can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to many months. So if you missed a couple of eggs or larvae hiding somewhere, you will have to start all over again. In order to prevent fleas, protect your pet at all times.  Get your yard treated and convince your neighbors to do the same. Call the experts if you are worried about fleas or suffer from an infestation. Flea populations can be reduced by hiring a professional to inspect your home and yard!
