Getting Rid of Fleas in Your Home or Business

Fleas are a common problem that can be difficult to control. These tiny, wingless insects are parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. They are capable of jumping long distances and can easily infest homes and businesses. When a flea infestation occurs, it is important to take immediate action to eliminate the problem.

At Wildlife Resolutions, we offer comprehensive flea control services in Ithaca, NY, and the surrounding areas. Our professional technicians can help you identify the source of the problem, develop a customized treatment plan, and provide tips for preventing future infestations.

Identifying a Flea Infestation

There are several signs that can indicate a flea infestation, including:

  • Itchy Skin – Flea bites often cause small, itchy red bumps. If you notice that you or your pets have been scratching more than usual, fleas may be the culprit.
  • Seeing Fleas or Flea Dirt – Fleas are small, dark brown or black insects that are about 1/8 inch long. They are usually found on pets or in areas where pets sleep or spend a lot of time. Flea dirt is the feces of fleas and looks like small black specks on your pet’s skin or in their bedding.
  • Pets That Are Scratching, Biting, or Licking Themselves More Than Usual – Fleas are most commonly found on dogs and cats, but they can also infest other animals, including rabbits, ferrets, and rodents. If your pet is scratching, biting, or licking themselves more than usual, they may have fleas.
  • Seeing Flea Eggs, Larvae, or Pupae – Fleas go through a life cycle that includes four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Flea eggs are tiny, white, and oval-shaped. Flea larvae are small, worm-like insects that are about 1/4 inch long. They are usually found in dark, humid areas, such as under your pet’s bedding or in carpeting. Flea pupae are cocoons that are about 1/4 inch long. They are usually found in the same areas as flea larvae. Flea pupae can remain dormant for several months, so even if you get rid of the adult fleas, you may still have a problem.

This is only feasible if the new roof is the same design and material as the roof we worked on.
