FLEA AND TICKS

  • Fleas can reproduce rapidly at room temperature, making your home an ideal year-round environment. Fleas require blood to survive and reproduce, in the absence of a petFlea Control New York, humans become the flea's blood meal.
  • Fleas are naturally protected from pesticides during various states of their life cycle. Most pesticides only kill fleas in their larva and adult stages, leaving the unhatched eggs and pupae to survive, develop and reproduce again.
  • Fleas live on the outside of the body and need to feed on the blood of these animals in order to produce eggs. Because fleas usually feed and lay their eggs while the pet is sleeping, the pet's resting areas are where the most fleas will be found.
