Prevent a Flea Infestation with These Simple Tips
Cats and dogs bring in fleas from the outdoors, causing flea infestations in your home. They are the most pervasive parasites that could crop up in a Northwest household and grow in moist areas, such as your cat’s litter box.
Keeping flea infestations away doesn’t have to be complicated. In this article, we give you 5 habits that can help you prevent an infestation at home.
Let’s get started.
Vacuum every day.
Keeping your house clean is the easiest way to prevent flea infestation. Vacuum carpets, rugs, and furniture thoroughly. Pay special attention to areas where your pets relax and sleep. Put the vacuum cleaner’s contents in a sealed plastic bag before throwing it away in an outdoor trash container.
Groom your pet.
Get the rodent population under control.
Clean your yard.
What to Do With an Infestation
Fleas are a common problem in the Seattle area during the spring, summer, and fall. During the hot months, their populations grow, and in preparation for the winter, they make an effort to migrate indoors. Fleas do not have wings, but they can leap great distances.
If you treat your pet for fleas at the same time as we treat the infestation, the likelihood of an infestation returning will be low. We recommend that you clean pet beds, linens, toys, and other items with detergent and hot water regularly.
