Why North Texas Pet Owners Hate Fleas

Fleas are a year-round problem in Texas as the temperatures here don’t drop low enough to stop these pests from being active in the wintertime. However, the ability of fleas to remain active in Texas during the winter also has to do with the fact that fleas live and feed on warm-blooded host animals. But beyond the fact that these pests are able to remain active year-round, there is another, more important reason North Texas pet owners hate fleas. It has to do with how ridiculously difficult it is to get rid of them once they get inside!

Everyone Has A Story

We've heard some horror stories regarding flea infestations, that's for sure. Some pet owners go through the wringer trying to get rid of these pernicious pests. They vacuum their carpets over and over again. They wash all their bedding, clothing, and any cloth items their pets have laid on. They buy sprays from the pet store and treat their floors, furniture, and other key locations around their home. And on top of all this, they bathe their pets in flea control products, soap and water, vinegar, or some other concoction that is supposed to get rid of fleas. Some people even go out and buy expensive flea collars and other flea treatments in a desperate attempt to arrest the infestation in their home. And you would think all that would be enough to stop those fleas, but sometimes it isn't! After taking all these steps to get rid of them, some pet owners still find fleas springing around on their home or crawling around inside their pet's fur. It's enough to make anyone go a little crazy!

Do I Need A Professional?

When a flea infestation arises in your home, the best solution is to contact a licensed and experienced pest control professional like us at Adams Exterminating Company! At Adams Exterminating, we use EPA-approved products and systematic methods to break the cycle of flea reproduction and stop flea infestations of any size. Our team is also experienced in the effective removal of mice and rats which can bring more problems into a home than just fleas. Rodents can also carry ticks, mites, lice, and other parasites inside. And, as you are probably aware, ticks can transmit diseases to you and your pets that can have lifelong health implications. Needless to say, you don't want rodents or ticks hanging around!

Most of the time, fleas won't make you sick, but they are capable of transmitting diseases. The most common illnesses that result due to exposure to fleas are murine typhus, tungiasis, and tularemia, and parasites like tapeworm. Fleas can also trigger asthma symptoms for those who suffer from asthma. Worst of all, fleas are still a vector for the plague. Yes, the same plague that killed more than 25 million people in Europe during the 14th-century outbreak! Fortunately, deaths from the plague are few and far between nowadays. But contracting it can make you very sick and, if untreated, can be fatal.

It is best to eliminate flea infestations quickly. If you're in our North Texas service area, let the friendly and experienced pest professionals at Adams Exterminating Company help you stop those fleas in their tracks. Request a free home estimate with us today to get started!
