Now that warmer temperatures are finally sticking around, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your pets and home are protected from a potential flea infestation. If these bloodsucking pests make their way into your home, you could be in for an uncomfortable experience as they continue to breed. By focusing on these precautions, you can ensure your pets and home are safe from the threat of spring fleas.
Treat Your Pets
In most cases, fleas will enter your home hitchhiking in the fur of your cat or dog after they play outside. For this reason, it is important to talk to your veterinarian about potential flea and tick treatments that can keep your pet from becoming a target of these pests. This is potentially more of a problem if you have a long-haired pet that doesn’t get shaved down for the spring or summer months. Finding the most effective flea treatment for your pets is much easier with the help of a professional veterinarian.
Spring fleas will often leave their eggs, larvae and pupae in carpeting or rugs that are around your home because they provide a little more protection than solid surfaces such as tiling or wood floors. No matter what type of flooring you have, it is important to vacuum regularly to remove their eggs and properly dispose of the dirt or dust that has been collected to avoid spreading them to other areas. If you have fleas in your home already, you may need to vacuum daily.
Maintain Your Lawn
If your home has a larger yard, it is important to keep it maintained to limit the appeal it has to fleas or ticks that may be nearby. To do this, mow your grass regularly and keep any shrubs or bushes that could provide shade and moisture trimmed. This process will also discourage the arrival of feral pests or neighborhood animals from bringing fleas to your property and is essential to effective flea control.
