Durham Flea Control

Fleas are parasitic insects that are most commonly found on cats and dogs. In fact, when pets spend considerable periods of time outdoors, they are likely to become infested with fleas. Once inside the house, the insects can spread from room to room. Severe infestations can leave household residents with bite marks over significant portions of the body. At Sorenson Pest Control, we’ll use a number of sophisticated techniques to eradicate the fleas once and for all.

Fleas are often first suspected when homeowners discover unpleasant red marks on the arms, legs, and ankles. In some instances, the rash may be accompanied by hives, and some men and women may become plagued by severe itching sensations. Rashes that do not receive immediate medical treatment can eventually spread to other regions of the body. Certain areas of the skin might also become inflamed.

Beyond the physical symptoms associated with flea bites, the critters can also pose more serious dangers. Many fleas carry tapeworms, which can be passed on to humans and pets. In other cases, fleas can transmit pathogens that may trigger anemia, loss of appetite, and skin discoloration. Because dogs are usually responsible for bringing the fleas into the household, they should be checked periodically for the pests. Certain medicated shampoos, in fact, can prevent fleas from infesting the family pet in the first place.

Because fleas are very small creatures that are hard to spot, property owners will likely need help. As consummate professionals, we’ll be able to determine the severity of the infestation. A broad array of treatment techniques can then be utilized to eliminate the insects. Concerned homeowners should contact Sorenson for a free quote.
