FLEAS

Pet owners in central Florida can experience flea problems at any time during the year. In addition to our climate that favors fleas, the wild animals that support large flea populations can often be found very near our homes. The wild animals we see during the day such as squirrels and rabbits as well as the opossum, raccoons, and deer that visit our yards at night are all hosts for fleas. These things combine to create large flea populations in the areas around your home you least want them; near your pets.

If you are seeing fleas on your pets or in your home there are some things you can do to control them. Although any one of these suggestions may control your problem, it is best to use them in combination to prevent fleas from getting on your pet and in your home.

Your first goal is to keep the wild animals as far from your home as possible. The easiest way to do this is to discourage them from coming in your yard in the first place. This means not actively feeding the wild animals in your neighborhood and bringing your pet's food and water bowls in each night.

Treating your yard is very helpful to control fleas. Most lawn and garden insecticides include fleas on their labels. Periodic use of these products will not only kill fleas, but will help control pests attacking your yard as well. These products are not difficult to apply. The most common forms are granules applied with a fertilizer spreader and liquids that can be applied with a hose end sprayer. Both are effective when used according to their labels.

A very important step in controlling fleas in your home is to first control them on your pet. While shampoos and topical sprays will kill many of the fleas, repeated use can be stressful to your pet and can also dry their skin. Once a month treatments, in the form of pills or oils, are very effective in controlling fleas on your pet. Names you may have heard of include Advantage, Comfortis, Front Line, and Revolution. In addition to fleas, some of these products will control ticks and heartworms as well. Some of these products are only available through your veterinarian. Consult with your veterinarian to see what is recommended for your pet.

The last step in controlling fleas in your home is to treat the inside of your home. There are plenty of products available at hardware, home supply, pet, and feed stores. Avoid foggers as they will leave pesticide residue on everything they come in contact with. Instead, rely on products applied to floor areas as this is where most of the flea population will be found. To be most effective, wash all pet bedding in hot water prior to treatment to prevent reinfestation of your home following treatment. It is sometimes necessary to perform a follow up treatment two weeks after the initial treatment for fleas. Read and follow the label for whatever products you choose.

As you can see, controlling fleas in your home is not complicated, although it can be time consuming. If you live in the Daytona Beach area of Florida and have followed the steps above and still are troubled with fleas, contact Universal Pest Control.
