How to get rid of fleas

Indication and Signs of Flea Activity

A common indication that there is flea activity is the increase in scratching and/or grooming of your pet. Many humans also experience having flea bites which leave itchy red hives/rashes on your skin.


After identifying signs that there are indeed flea activity in your home there are some measures you can take to help alleviate and prevent further infestation:

  • Inspect cracks and crevices for flea activity.
  • Use a vacuum to clean up any visible fleas and eggs.
  • Clean your home.
  • Wash clothes and bedding frequently.
  • See a doctor/bring your pets to the veterinarian to treat flea bites.

While most flea infestations can be treated with the help of consumer products and the preventative steps above, ongoing flea infestations may require the help of a professional. If you're having trouble controlling your flea problem, contact us and we can discuss your treatment options.
