The town of Troutdale, at the entrance to the Columbia Gorge, is arguably one of the Portland areas most breathtaking areas. Residents in the Troutdale neighborhood of Beavercreek know firsthand just how gorgeous this area is, however, its proximity to both urban and rural areas makes it particularly vulnerable to invasive pests such as summertime fleas.
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; they can multiply very quickly and the worse that it gets, the harder they are to exterminate.
If your pets don’t have fleas or you don’t even have pets, fleas can arrive from many other sources. For example, if you have rodents or any other animals living under or around 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.
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.
