Flea Exterminator Near Seattle

When your pet starts scratching and just won’t stop, it’s time to see if you have a flea problem. While you probably treat your furry companions for fleas and ticks on a regular basis, sometimes these pests can slip through the cracks. This poses a real issue, as once they’re in your home, fleas can spread to furniture, carpets and even human hosts.

Choose Whitworth Pest Solutions for Your Flea Extermination Needs

Fleas pose some danger to humans, but your pets are at the greatest risk of harm. Fleas feed on blood, which means anyone who has contact with them is at risk of getting bitten. The bites themselves are usually not too serious, though you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Swelling

Whitworth Pest Solutions can rid your house of these pests and protect family and pets from the dangerous diseases they may carry. Our experts can verify if fleas are the issue and successfully clear out problematic areas.

  • Pets constantly scratching or chewing on their fur
  • Small, dot-like bugs moving on your upholstery

Why You Should Hire an Exterminator

The fleas likely came from the yard, so if you clear out your house, but then let pets play outdoors, you may be inviting the problem right back in.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fleas

Will Flea Bites Hurt Anyone?
Some people and pets are very sensitive to flea bites and scratching bites can lead to infection. Fleas also transmit tapeworms and a variety of diseases including bubonic plague.
Are Fleas Difficult To Control?
Fleas can be very difficult to control, especially if your cat or dog roams outside your home. Pets can spread fleas wherever they go. Once fleas get established, a thorough treatment is needed. This usually means treating the carpet, upholstered furniture, pet bedding and your lawn. Contact your veterinarian for advice on a variety of techniques to keep your pets flea free.
How Effective Are Flea Bombs And Flea Collars?
Flea bombs provide temporary relief for fleas, but they do not usually kill flea eggs and pupae. They leave no residue to kill these pests when they hatch. Flea collars for your pet reduce flea problems, but rarely eliminates fleas.
What Can I Do To Control Fleas?
Eliminating fleas on your pet will help keep them out of your home. Also wash or vacuum pet sleeping and eating areas regularly. During the peak flea months, usually June to September, do not allow your pets to roam freely or be in contact with other animals. If you cannot restrict your pets, then you or your vet should treat them regularly.
