Fleas are one of the most common pests that infest homes in the Orange County area. In addition to being a nuisance, however, fleas can carry disease-causing bacteria that can make people very sick. For some helpful tips on identifying and a controlling a flea infestation in your house, continue reading.
All species of fleas are very small and do not grow more than one-eighth of an inch long. Typically, fleas are dark in appearance, have brown or rusty-red bodies, and are capable of moving quickly across a surface. Since fleas can sometimes be difficult to spot with the naked eye, the best way to identify them is to check for tiny red bite marks on the skin of animals or people. If bite marks are found, there may be a flea infestation in your home.
Despite their small size, fleas can be dangerous pests to have around. Along with spreading diseases such as typhus, these pests can infect humans and pets with tapeworms and other parasites. As a result, it is important to prevent from fleas from coming into your house. To do this, simply apply flea-removal drops to your pet’s hair regularly, clean pet-bedding often, and vacuum the house a few times a week. Following these simple steps will keep fleas at bay.
Even if you actively try to prevent fleas by the following the steps above, an infestation can still occur. If this happens, the best course of action to take is to contact a pest control professional. The exterminator will locate flea nesting areas in your home and spray those areas with a high-quality pesticide. This will rid your house of fleas and allow you to rest easy at night, knowing that fleas will not be biting you or your pets.

Fumigation is one of the most widely used methods for exterminating termites and other pests. Despite this, many homeowners have misconceptions about what fumigation is and why it is used in the place of other pest control practices. In its most basic sense, fumigation is a practice in which Sulfuryl fluroide is released into a house that is sealed off with vinyl tarps. Because the chemicals used in fumigation are toxic, both people and animals need to vacate the house for the amount of time stated by the company handling the fumigation procedure. While fumigation is highly effective, it may need to be used in conjunction with other pest control methods to completely eradicate insects from the home.
If you would like to learn more about fumigation, contact Payne Pest Management. We can answer all of our questions about fumigation and determine if that treatment option will be best for your pest control problem. To set up an appointment with us, visit our website or call (877) 365-5629.
