fleas under microscope

One Long Island homeowner talks about his flea problem “I have a flea infestation in my house/yard. I have tried various foggers inside my home on 3 different occasions. I have sprayed raid and another product on my flooring. They just keep coming back within a day. I have vacuumed daily after work to try and knock down the population.”  Suburban Exterminating was able to put an end to this client’s flea woes, but we wish this homeowner never had to deal with a flea infestation in the first place! Fleas are a menace to all members of the family because they can jump between pets and humans. Just like mosquitoes, fleas can transmit disease because their mouths’ pierce the skin to suck their host’s blood. Bites from fleas are often presented in clusters or lines. Flea bites can be very itchy and can cause allergic reactions in some people.

Protect against fleas before they become an issue with these easy tips for flea prevention.

  • Cut your grass!  Tall grass gives rodents and other animals a hiding spot.

  • Rodents have fleas. Contact us for rodent solutions.

  • Give your pet regular baths.
