If you're a pet owner you already know what fleas are. These tiny insects prey on cats and dogs and cause your pet to scratch all the time. Fleas also feed on the blood of humans and other animals so even if you don't have pets you could end up with a flea infestation in your home. And sad to say, adult fleas have the ability to live for months without food.
If you have pets then it is likely fleas entered your home on the back of your dog or cat. Fleas are also excellent jumpers, capable of jumping 6 inches straight up. They also come indoors on shoes and clothes so having pets is not a prerequisite for flea infestations. Once fleas find a host they will feed, mate and lay eggs in between the hairs of their host.
Fleas are bothersome to both pets and people. Their bites may cause persistent itching. They also host tapeworm and have spread serious health conditions such as the plague and murine typhus.
Well you could attempt to get rid of these pests on your own but a better solution would be to contact McCauley Services. We offer effective flea control services that are far more effective than any product you might buy at the hardware store.

First, we recommend contacting your vet if you are a pet owner. They will be able to help you find a flea (and tick) control product suitable for your pet(s). You should also vacuum often to take care of any pests your pet may carry inside. Pay close attention to dog beds and other spaces that your pets enjoy. Outside you may consider making your property less appealing to wildlife that could play host to fleas. Remove potential food sources (i.e. bird feeders, overripe fruit and gardens etc.). Consider erecting a barrier between woods and your lawn to keep animals from crossing over. You may also consider a year round pest control program to keep your structure and property a pest free zone. For homeowners we recommend our Prescribed Home Protection Program. And for businesses fighting pests our Prescribed Commercial Program offers superior protection.
