Safeguarding Homes and Businesses from Pests
Flea infestations are known to be a common occurrence within a premises throughout urban and rural environments which has long been and will always remain a serious problem due to their native environment which is grassland areas. That being said, fleas are easily able to transfer themselves between hosts and objects giving their ability to jump any where between 18 - 33 centimeters (depending at which axis). Owning a pet is the highest possibility of fleas being brought into the a the premises due to them walking through grassland areas or interacting with other animals which happen to be infested though a lower possibility of being brought in by an unsuspecting guest also exists.
Fleas can be extremely cryptic only making themselves visible when it's feeding time, and in relation to feeding, fleas are to be considered dangerous as they are capable of transmitting disease if they were to feed on animals from an unsanitary environment. A premises that is occupied by humans or animals can rapidly become overran by an infestation as a constant food source would assist reproduction which is why professionals like ourselves should be contacted as soon as signs or even suspicion becomes apparent.
