Control Fleas In Your Yard | Mosquito Joe NW Houston

Most people know the common annoyances of fleas for cats, dogs, and sometimes even humans. Their bites are itchy, their saliva can be an allergen causing rashes, and they can cause skin problems when your cat or dog scratches incessantly. What many people don’t realize is that fleas actually carry diseases just like mosquitoes and ticks.

Learn About Fleas

Fleas are skilled hunters, targeting hosts that are warm-blooded creatures such as dogs, cats, opossums, rats, and various rodents. Their impressive leg strength enables them to leap over 100 times their own body length, facilitating easy movement between hosts and even from pets to humans. The ASPCA highlights that fleas have the astonishing capacity to absorb up to 15 times their body weight in blood, which can lead to long-term issues like anemia and significant blood loss, as well as the potential transmission of tapeworm infections.

How to Protect Your Pets Against Fleas!

A female flea can lay 2,000 eggs, and fleas can bite up to 400 times a day, so you should have a flea prevention plan to protect your home and pets. If you have pets, veterinarians recommend a monthly flea and tick preventative given once a month during all seasons. An important supplement to that is treating your yard to keep it bite-free. Our flea control services treat the ground and grass on your property, not just the leafy shrubs, ensuring that our exceptional service professionals reach all locations where fleas like to hide.
