Pesky Fleas!!

Friday, 3. February 2012 10:12

There is a reason why fleas are real troublesome pests despite their size. Because they cannot be seen easily and are real quick to hop and hide around, they can easily bite, multiply, and infest inside your home. Eventually, you’ll feel truly uncomfortable inside your own space.

A dog owner did once complain about the fleas that kept on attacking and infesting his place. He says he cleaned the house basement to the point that he already kept all of his dogs outside his house and did not allow them to linger inside.  But then, whenever visitors came to visit the basement, fleas would cling on them and the house will once more be full of fleas.  He thinks maybe using a growth regulator would do him good to get rid of those fleas. But then, is it a solution?

Fleas have always become a problem in homes and apartments, especially when it is a place where animals love to linger. Not only are we talking about having your pet cats and dogs indoors, but it also includes other animals that roam about your neighborhoods such as raccoons,  rats and other rodents.  Basically, furry animals are prone to be infested with fleas and, sooner or later, they may infest your very homes, causing you to have bites all over.

HELP! I need help getting rid of fleas.

Q      : HELP! I need help getting rid of fleas. IS the archer IGR the product that I need? WIll it get rid of the ones that are alive plus the ones in the other stages?


A       : The Archer IGR solely prohibits the fleas from reaching a stage of reproduction. It will not have a killing effect. Therefore it is best recommended to be used along with a concentrated liquid insecticide such as Demize EC which will kill the fleas in all of its stages.


Q: Are Fleas invisable to the naked eye? Can they be cleared off your body?

A: Fleas are visible to the naked eye, but you would probably have to peer in very closely and maybe even use a magnifying glass to see them clearly. Most people tend to not see them because fleas hop around so much. Unfortunately, they cannot be cleared directly off your body, but we do have a wide variety of products available to kill fleas :Flea Control Products

Dog Fleas

Like all other species of fleas, dog fleas (Ctenocephalides canis), are parasitic insects that feed on the blood of their host.  They are primarily found in the fur of canines. You can find them on the fur of many wild canines such as wolves or foxes and also the common house dog.  However, they can also be found in the fur of many wild and domestic felines like bobcats or a domestic house cat.  They are not only limited to just cats and dogs but can be found on almost any mammal species or even birds.

How to Get Rid of Fleas

Flea Pest Control


Fleas are hard to control in that they are so small and can hitch a ride to almost any location.  When there is an infestation, fleas can be found anywhere and everywhere.  A common misconception is that fleas only come about when there are pets or animals in the building or home, however, vacationers can easily bring them home by carrying them in the shoes or on the clothes.  When a person brings home a new pet, they might find that they are suddenly attacked by a flea infestation because fleas may emerge even after a few months of being dormant, when they notice that a host is nearby.

Fleas are typically found in resting areas, where your pet sleeps or areas that your pet travels frequently, especially along their usual paths of travel in the home.  These areas are where eggs will roll off easily and where most of the breeding will occur.  They hide deep in the carpets and can be found in virtually any crack and crevice area. Environments that are high in moisture is key to their survival.  Larvae will die if it is too cold or dry and so they will rarely be found outdoors. They will die at humidities that are relatively below 45% and also above 95% and they fail to develop at temperatures that are below 55 degrees F or above 95 degrees F (13 degrees C or 35 degrees C).
