Flea & Tick Control from Fischer Environmental
Serving the Louisiana & Mississippi Gulf Coast for More than 60 Years
Living along the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast can be quite wonderful, but these beautiful and sunny climates also bring pest problems. Fleas and ticks especially enjoy these warmer climates, and can complete an entire reproductive cycle in as little as two weeks when the conditions are right. This makes finding professional flea and tick control services in Louisiana and Mississippi extremely important.
How Homes Become Infested With Fleas and Ticks
Most people associate fleas and ticks with animals, and rightfully so. These pests will often infest the fur of your pet, usually after your animal has come in contact with infested nearby wildlife or vegetation.
However, even people who do not have pets can experience a flea infestation. These parasites can latch onto your skin and clothing as you walk through overgrown grasses or through any other dense vegetation. They then enter your home, and are very difficult to eradicate.
Handling Flea and Tick Infestations
Because flea and tick infestations spread so rapidly, and these parasites are so small and elusive, controlling and preventing them can become a very difficult task. Getting rid of fleas requires a comprehensive and multifaceted approach that includes:
Cleaning Your Home – You can make a big difference in the number of fleas in your home by thoroughly cleaning and vacuuming your floors. All linens, especially bedding, should be sealed in a bag until they can be washed using high temperature water and detergents. By removing clutter from your floors, you can remove hiding places for fleas and make it easier for pest control professionals to provide thorough treatment.
Pest Control Treatments – Fischer Environmental can treat the interior and exterior of your home using proven, safe, and effective insecticides. These treatments will largely be targeted around the typical hiding places enjoyed by fleas and ticks, such as cracks and crevices around the floors and walls of your home.
Treating Your Pets – While you are having your house treated for fleas and ticks, this is a good time to schedule an appointment for your pets to be seen by their veterinarian and/or groomer. This will not only get your animals out of the home while pest control professionals work, but you can also receive flea and tick treatments that will address the parasites actually living on the pets.
Regular Maintenance – To keep your home free of fleas and ticks, it is important to perform regular maintenance. This means vacuuming floors, cleaning linens, and mowing the grass frequently. Keeping your lawn well manicured is an excellent way to prevent future infestations as this reduces the chance that fleas and ticks will attach to you, or your pets, as you walk to and from your home.
Fischer Environmental can of course regularly provide flea & tick treatments and inspections for your home in order to further help you eliminate the risk that you will face a flea infestation, or any other pest problem in the future.
