Fleas in the winter?

Many pet owners believe that once winter hits, they no longer need residential pest control because their pet’s flea infestations will be over…at least for a few months. However, fleas continue to be a problem during the winter, and if you like to keep your home nice and warm (who doesn't?), then those pesky fleas have the perfect home.
Where To Find Fleas
Your home is a great place for fleas to breed during the winter, which not only continues your flea problem, but it also sets the stage for a more severe infestation in the spring. While fleas might spend most of their time on your pet, you should also carefully inspect your carpet, living room furniture and beds to see if they’re hiding out there. Anywhere your pet has traveled in your home should be checked carefully.
Problems Fleas Cause
Fleas feed on blood from your pet when they bite. This can cause serious skin damage for your pet, and in kittens and puppies, the problems are magnified. Smaller animals can even become anemic after suffering too many bites. Not to mention, they can bite people too, even if such cases are rare.
Do-it-yourself residential pest control rarely works because the chemicals available in the store simply aren't strong enough. The best flea control method is by treating the area with professional-grade chemicals. Don’t let fleas get you or your pet down this winter. 

Contact your local residential pest control company for quick elimination of your flea problem before it gets out of control.
