Clackamas is replete with family neighborhoods, and Lair Hill is absolutely one of the most charming. Through the streets and avenues of Lair Hill, you’ll find family home after family home, complete with backyard BBQs, minivans, and children frolicking with their pets—also it is these same pets that put each Lair home in danger of flea infestations every year.
Fleas are an external parasite that can be very bothersome to have in the house. Just about everyone has had a flea infestation at some point and it can be quite annoying. In addition, they can multiply very quickly and the worse that it gets, the harder they are to exterminate.
The first thing that you should do when trying to address a flea problem is to look at the pets. Be sure to use a quality flea control product like Advantage or Frontline. If your pets don’t have fleas or you don’t even have pets, fleas can come from other sources. For example, if you have rodents or any other animals living under your home, your crawl space might be infested with fleas that are making their way up to your living space. It might be worth having a pest control company doing a free crawl space inspection to let you know if there is a problem down there.
As mentioned, it is important to act quickly when dealing with fleas. A female can lay about 20 eggs at a time and over 5,000 in a lifetime! On top of this, an egg matures into an adult in just 3 to 4 weeks, so you can see how quickly things can get worse.
