It doesn’t take much for a flea problem to get quickly out of control because of the nature of the life cycle. Even when you kill the fleas that are present, the eggs, larva and pupa can remain, and you’ll have a new batch of adults showing up before long. Since a flea can live up to a year, it is easy to understand how just a few can create a continual, chronic flea problem. Keeping your pet and your home free from fleas is a far better option than struggling with a flea infestation that can take months to overcome.

Flea Control

It isn’t enough to put a flea collar on your pet or even use a topical remedy. Even with those in place, they can transport fleas into your home from your yard. In fact, you can also be an unwilling host to hitchhiking fleas. If you want to be protected from that, your best course of action is professional yard flea control.

Yard flea control is also a great alternative if you would prefer not to use a flea treatment directly on your pet. They can’t accumulate fleas if there aren’t any in their territory to begin with. This might be a good option if you have an older pet or one with health issues that might not be able to tolerate a topical flea preventative.
