Pleasant Valley is Gresham’s answer to the idyllic bedroom community. And where there are young families, there are pets. And where there are pets, there are fleas. When topical flea preventions fail or oral medications are overlooked, summertime flea issues can explode, taking over your entire home. Fleas multiply very quickly and the worse it gets, the harder they are to exterminate.
Time is of the essence when dealing with fleas. A female can lay about 20 eggs at a time and over 5,000 in a lifetime. An egg matures into an adult in just 3 to 4 weeks. When prevention fails, managing a flea infestation can quickly become nightmarish.
Just about every customer that we meet has already tried some over the counter products to exterminate fleas, but many of them can be counterproductive. For example, probably the worse thing that you can do is use flea foggers. These are basically just a no-residual repellent that will drive the fleas deep into the walls and furniture. You might think that you made an impact for a while, but they will come back stronger.

We employ an approach to pest control called “Integrated Pest Management,” we believe that each home should be treated differently because each home is unique. Gresham’s many varied neighborhoods each have specific needs and vulnerabilities.
