Outdoor Flea Pest Control
Many pet owners know that once their dog or cat has fleas and brings them into the house, it can be a challenge to get rid of them again. The goal of a flea-free home really begins outside. Flea treatment for yard stops these noxious pests from multiplying and invading your life by targeting the places they are most likely to live and reproduce.
Why Choose Outdoor Flea Control?
The most common species of flea, the cat flea, reproduces readily in gravel, sandy soil, wood chips, and other dark and damp but well-drained areas. The rate of reproduction is incredible. One female flea alone can produce over 20,000 offspring in a month.
With those kinds of numbers amassing right outside your door, you may wonder how a bought at the shop treatment will be sufficient to stop them. In many cases, it simply is not. While the female fleas already on your pet can explode the infestation quickly, it is the giant unseen swarms hiding in the shadows outside in your yard that are the real problem
Flea pest control frequently takes place in the home, but when we or our animals go outside, we can easily pick up jumping pests and bring them back inside. Eggs and larvae can also come in attached to shoes.

Protecting Pets and People
Fleas are more than just annoying bugs that bite and make your pet itchy. If left untreated, they can suck enough blood out of the dog orcat to cause dangerous anemia. They also introduce bacteria into the bloodstream, potential parasites, and can trigger allergic responses as well.
If fleas get inside from the garden, they can also affect the people in the house and cause itchy red bite marks and plenty of embarrassment. In most cases, that is all flea are: a nuisance. However, no one wants to deal with these leaping bugs and see their pets uncomfortable or suffering.
