Flea Control

Simpsonville Flea Control for Homes

Where Do Fleas Hide?

Inside the house, fleas are often found in carpeted areas and near animal bedding, furniture, and baseboards. Outside the house, they are typically found in crawlspaces, under decks, in mulch, or in shaded areas. 

Our flea control service starts with a thorough inspection of your home. Our pest control experts have extensive knowledge of fleas, including their development, how to identify them, and effective pest control solutions for getting rid of fleas. 

If you’ve had flea problems in the past, you know the difficulty of getting rid of them. Fleas can enter your home on your pet or from animals that travel through your yard. No matter how they get in, you can count on the pros at Action Pest Services to get them out. We offer reliable flea control at an affordable price. 

Fleas are challenging to control, but our treatment process has been honed to ensure that your home remains pest free. Are fleas bothering you and your pets? Call (864) 301-6535 for a free estimate for flea control service. 

Flea Removal Process & FAQs

The first step in effective flea control is to identify the problem and find where fleas are congregating. Once we have inspected your home and identified your flea problem, we provide flea treatment. This includes treating the inside and outside of the house. For the exterior of your home, we focus on areas that harbor fleas. A granular flea control product is used in most areas, with a liquid treatment in some areas. 

A growth regulating hormone is applied to prevent the development of immature fleas, which helps control the population, we treat:

  • Carpeted areas
  • Rugs 
  • Around furniture 
  • Baseboards
  • And any other areas where fleas are found

Here are some helpful facts about fleas: 

  • Their eggs are about a half millimeter in length and a pearly white color
  • Females lay an egg every hour for their entire life
  • Larvae feed on “flea dust,” which is adult flea fecal droppings
  • Fleas remain in the pupa stage until stimulated by movement or vibration
  • Fleas typically remain on their host for life
  • They can jump about seven inches high

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I know if I have a flea infestation in my home?

You may notice your pets scratching excessively, red and irritated skin on your pets, or small black dots on your pet's skin, which could be flea dirt. Additionally, you may see fleas jumping on your furniture or carpet.

Can fleas survive in cold weather?

Fleas prefer warm and humid environments, but they can survive in colder temperatures. They may seek shelter indoors during colder months, making flea control essential year-round.

What are some natural ways to prevent fleas in my home?

Regular vacuuming, grooming your pets, and washing their bedding in hot water can help prevent fleas. Additionally, using essential oils like cedarwood, lavender, or peppermint can act as natural repellents for fleas.

The effectiveness of flea control treatments can vary depending on the severity of the infestation and environmental factors. In general, professional flea control treatments can provide protection for several weeks to a few months.
