In the past, fleas might have only been associated with household pets like dogs and cats but these pests have a much farther reach than just that. Instead of sticking to one main point of entry, fleas are creative when it comes to crossing thresholds of homes and businesses. Instead of struggling to put a ban on bites, let Toodaloo help with our Coquitlam flea removal service.
Collars and other flea control products might deter pests from latching on to Rover, but fleas are hitchhikers and not picky about how they get around. Something as simple as heading out for a hike can open the door to an infestation. These biting pests are known to latch onto pant legs, backpacks, as well as other small animals and rodents. Having a mouse indoors is bad enough but it is even worse when they bring fleas along for the ride.
Once fleas break into the great indoors they are not keen to leave. There is no better way to stake their claim than to spread their numbers throughout a space. Adult fleas cling onto fur, long-hair and loose fabric. Once they have secured themselves, adult female insects lay eggs loosely on surfaces. It might seem to make more sense to secure eggs but without an anchor, these ticking time bombs can be shed and spread anywhere and everywhere. Adult fleas are hard enough to spot on their own but flea larvae and eggs might as well be invisible. Eggs are pushed into soft surfaces like carpeting, as well as gaps and openings in flooring or around baseboards. Treating adult populations might slow an infestation down but as long as there are eggs, it is only a matter of time. Without the proper equipment, it is impossible to track and treat your infestation – so save the effort and call a professional.
The only way to properly remove pests from a property is to treat infestations at every stage of the flea life cycle. This means using expert tools and experience to treat larvae and eggs located in even the most difficult areas. Pet bedding, carpeting and furniture are all highly active areas – and you can’t exactly approach these with a flea comb and diatomaceous earth. The pest control specialists at Toodaloo use imaging tools to identify high-traffic areas and then treat these spots using combination high-heat as well as chemical or non-chemical options.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
