Essential Flea Control Tips
Fighting Fleas Indoors
Groom your pets frequently. Pets are often targets for invading fleas, which is why keeping them protected is essential. Regular grooming helps you eliminate the fleas taking up shelter in their fur. To develop the ideal grooming schedule for your pet, consult your veterinarian.
Wash your pets’ bedding on a regular basis. Because it’s common for fleas to set their sights on your pets, it’s common for them to end up in their bedding. Washing your pets’ bedding on your washer’s hottest setting can eliminate any fleas hanging out on it and prevent them from spreading throughout your home.
Fighting Fleas Outdoors
Mow often. Fleas generally get onto your property by hitching a ride on the rodents they feed on. Tall grass can shelter these and other small animals carrying fleas, which is why mowing is essential to flea prevention.
Seal off nesting areas. If left unsealed, the rodents carrying fleas on your property could nest in secluded places like crawlspaces or under your porch. Blocking off these areas can prevent rodent infestations and the fleas that accompany them.
Trim trees and shrubs. Rodents can also hide in overgrown greenery. Regularly trimming your trees and shrubs not only helps your yard look more manicured, but it also helps you avoid growing rodent populations.
