How do I know if I have a flea infestation?

Fleas are amazing little dudes. They can jump up as high as your waist and reproduce in any cool, dark place. Although carpet and grass are preferred, tile grout and sand can still provide fleas with a good home.

While fleas are tiny insects, they can bite hard and jump up to three feet high. Fleas are attracted to light-colored clothing and objects. If you think you are being bitten, you can throw a clean white sock near to where your pets spend a lot of time, and you will see them jump right on. If this is the case, you need to do something fast because, within a few weeks, you will be overrun. Since most of us have our pets sleep nearby, the fleas may be happy eating you, as well.

Can I stop a flea infestation myself?

Fleas can be a nightmare if they’re left too long. While developing into adults, fleas can hide in cocoons for almost a year without a meal, so it’s not uncommon to hear stories of people coming home to a massive attack all at once. Maybe they got hungry while waiting for you to bring dinner back home from Philly.

Adult fleas are not difficult to control when you understand their basic biology. From larvae to adult, fleas have distinct behaviors. In your Sarasota house, flea larvae are glued to the base of the carpet strands and left to feed on spills of dried blood. They soon gather nearby debris and make an impenetrable cocoon around themselves to change into that final stage of adulthood.

Vibration or people’s breath can draw them out in an instant. And all of a sudden, they’ll leap onto you or Fluffy to have a cocktail. Once full, they will drop off and shortly be ready to start making babies. A skilled flea exterminator like Johnny Bugs Pest Control will use EPA reduced risk, no-odor products to get total flea control fast.

Over-the-counter products have high amounts of active ingredients and usually rely on old, smelly technology that can be far too weak to stop a serious problem.

Do certain parts of Florida need flea exterminators more than others?

In Florida’s Manatee County, Charlotte County, and Sarasota County, flea season typically peaks in the fall when the weather starts to dry up the swampy areas. With an influx of raccoons and squirrels to hitch a ride on out of the woods, they will soon take up residence in your yard. Fleas can still be a nuisance all year long, however, so keep a keen eye out for these little black jumpers.

Where do fleas live outside?

Fleas prefer to be in shady areas where animals or pets frequent. Under that large live oak would be a great spot for a picnic feeding! Make sure your flea exterminator treats everywhere they may have infested, or they’ll be back. Call Johnny Bugs Pest Control Company and rest assured you have a highly trained flea exterminator on the way!
