There is a common misconception that flea issues only exist in homes that have pets. However, the truth is that fleas can be brought to your property by mice, birds, and many other wild animals. These annoying pests can even make their way into your home. Once they’re in, they’re hard to get out. That’s why Mosquito Hunters™ provides expert flea control in Columbia and throughout the surrounding areas of Howard County.
What You Need to Know About Fleas
Fleas are very common in Columbia and all across North America. In fact, there are over 300 different species. The primary flea in the United States is known as the ‘cat flea’, but this pest is not exclusive to cats. These fleas cause all sorts of issues for cats and dogs, including tapeworms and anemia. They also have a desire for human blood, which leads to itchy bites over our exposed skin.
About Our Flea Control Service in Columbia
To combat fleas, we attack this problem in multiple ways. First, it’s vital to limit the presence of mice and other animals on your property. Reducing wood piles and other debris will make the area less appealing for rodents, therefore decreasing the chances of further flea issues.
With over 95% of fleas existing in stages of early life such as pupae, eggs, and larvae, it’s most important to limit their breeding on your property. If this massive wave of fleas is allowed to fully mature, you will have some serious problems on your hands. We have the experience and knowledge to neutralize their nesting habitats and put a stop to their reproductive cycle.
Most significantly, we offer trusted barrier treatments using our exclusive spray. This product will bond with the plants around your property, creating a firm barrier that blocks out fleas and kills those within. This protection will remain strong for several weeks per visit, so we highly recommend securing our ongoing service. With regular support, we can proudly offer guaranteed protection from fleas.
How You Can Help Control Fleas
To make sure your property is ready for our service, it’s helpful to have your lawn mowed and any debris cleared away. Also, please avoid over-watering the area, as this creates a more attractive environment for fleas.
