Fleas Pest Control Service in Central Wisconsin
Fleas are a well-known and somewhat scary pest for homeowners, especially those with pests. They are small, wingless insects around 2.5mm long with shiny, reddish-brown bodies. While they do not have wings, they are capable of jumping long distances which makes it easier for them to travel from animal to animal. They are holometabolous insects, which means they go through four complete lifecycle stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Flea populations have an approximate distribution of 50% eggs, 35% larvae, 10% pupae, and only 5% adults, and adults must feed on blood before they can reproduce.
Flea infestations are next to impossible to handle by yourself and require the help of multiple professionals. While you will want to trust a professional pest control service like 1st Choice Pest Control for flea removal from your property, you’ll also need to address the source of the fleas which is likely a pet. This means you’ll need to simultaneously coordinate with your pest control company and your veterinarian to attack the problem from all sides.
