What our Flea Removal Service Wants You to Know About Fleas
As mentioned, it’s difficult to see fleas, unless you are looking out for them and realize they are there. Unless you have a light-colored pet, you might have a difficult time seeing them on dogs and cats, too. In most cases, fleas get into your home from your dogs and cats, and they can pick them upright in your back yard or from other animals. If you bring a puppy home, it’s crucial that you make sure it doesn’t have fleas, too.
What do fleas look like? They are generally flat and small with a brownish-red color. They move quickly, and they can jump far distances. Their bodies are made of a tough exterior, so you can’t even always kill them by squeezing them if you can catch them, so trying to take care of them on your own can be difficult.
Often mistaken for lice or bedbugs, fleas feed on blood, and when they bite you, the effect is a red and itchy bump. People often mistake these for mosquito bites, as they look similar. However, flea bites often appear around the ankles, as they settle into the carpet, and the flea often bites several times, so you might see a cluster of bumps, which might look like acne.
Fleas don’t just live on dogs and cats. They also live on furry pet rodents, like guinea pigs, rats, and mice, and rabbits. The fleas lay eggs in beds, carpet, and even in the cracks of wooden or tile floors, and another sign you have fleas is the appearance of a substance that looks like coarse ground black pepper, which is the feces of fleas. At the end of the day, you will need our flea control services.
We can help eradicate fleas from your home in all 50 states, including in the following areas:
- Newport News

Advice from our Flea Exterminator
If you have tall grass on your property, a flea exterminator will tell you that it is likely that fleas are living in there. Once your pet…or even yourself, walk through it, you can bring them right into the home without realizing it. You can also get fleas in your home from other people or animals who come in. Once the flea transfers to your pet, they can multiply quickly.
You can partially avoid this by making sure your puppy, cats, or dogs are on a flea preventative medication from your vet. You should make sure to spray the yard, too, especially in overgrown areas.
