ID / Biology / Behavior:

Fleas are Insecta, order Siphonaptera – an agile, dark colored, wingless insect with tube-like mouth-parts allowing them to feed on a variety of warm-blooded vertebrates including dogs, cats, humans, chickens, rabbits, squirrels, rats, ferrets or mice. Species include the Cat Flea, Dog Flea, Human Flea, Moorhen Flea (South America), Northern Rat Flea (rats and mice) and Oriental Rat Flea (tropical).

Fleas are able to jump vertically up to 7 inches – horizontally up to 13 inches. Comparably, if we had a Flea’s power, a 6-foot human could jump vertically up to 160 feet – horizontally up to 295 feet!

Flea Control Phoenix AZ

A Flea’s body is laterally compressed, allowing ease of movement through hairs, feathers or (in humans) under clothing. An adult Flea’s diet consists of fresh blood. In order to reproduce, a Flea must first feed on blood. More than three-quarters of a Flea’s life is spent somewhere other than on a host.

Habitat:

Fleas lay eggs in batches, usually on the blood host. After reaching their adult stage, Fleas ‘rest’ until a signal (vibrations including sound, heat, and carbon dioxide) is received that a host is near.

Prevention Tips / Treatment:

Fleas on humans can be treated with anti-itch creams or calamine lotion. In the home, frequent vacuuming is helpful. Diatomaceous earth is used as a remedy; however, its dust is harmful to pets and humans so use of a dust mask is strongly recommended. The grade used for pool filters should NOT be used for Fleas as it is not effective and, when inhaled, causes silicosis (lung disease marked by inflammation and scarring in upper lobes). Borax (a laundry booster) kills Fleas but pet safety is untested.

With antibiotics and improved hygiene practices, the recent confirmation of Fleas in the Flagstaff area carrying the plague (see ‘the Black Death’) is not a cause for concern (per staff at the Center for Microbial Genetics and Genomics at NAU).

Our Pest Control Process

We utilize an Integrated Pest Management (I.P.M.) approach for Arizona Pest Control. This comprehensive approach includes:

  • Inspection - Service specialists conduct a thorough inspection of the property.
  • Identification - Pests are identified for appropriate control measures.
  • Environmental Modification - All possible environmental modification solutions are considered prior to any material application.
  • Material Application - When a thorough inspection has been performed, a proper identification has been assessed, and all environmental modification options have been made (if applicable), a material application will be performed in a judicious, environmentally responsible manner.

OUR PROCESS

Pest Control Prevention Tips

A successful Arizona Pest Control program requires more than simply relying solely on your recurring Pest Control services. Understanding that recurring Pest Control plays a critical role, supplemental Pest Control methods include the client’s cooperation in properly preparing and maintaining the property being serviced. Properly preparing and maintaining a Pest-free environment includes:

Interior Considerations: Seal holes in walls and around pipes, cables and wires. Seal cracks and crevices with paint or caulk. Seal other holes ¼” or larger. Fix leaky plumbing. Correct excessive moisture problems. Remove clutter. Organize storage rooms/closets. Store Pest nesting material (fabric, paper, rug scraps, plastic, and insulation) in Pest-proof containers. Clean and screen drains. Cap drains in basement floors. Store human and pet food in Pest-proof containers. Maintain excellent sanitation conditions. Dispose of Pest- or Rodent-infested goods. Remove fecal matter (rodents, bats, birds). Sanitize animal fecal matter after removal. Investigate secondary Pest potential from primary Pest infestation (e.g. fleas, mites).

Exterior Considerations: Cut vegetation back from building walls at least 18″. Remove ivy and other vines from sides of buildings or nearby trees. Trim back tree branches that touch or rub against building. Seal and/or repair air conditioning unit(s). Seal holes in walls and around pipes, cables, and wires. Seal other holes ¼” or larger. Repair damaged roof. Move compost into Pest-proof containers. Fix leaking irrigation. Eliminate standing water. Maintain properly functioning drains. Maintain order in storage shed(s) and/or garage(s). Store Pest nesting material (fabric, paper, rug scraps, plastic, and insulation) in Pest-proof containers. Store grass seed and pet food in Pest-proof containers. Remove debris, lumber and/or rock piles. Move firewood piles as far away from the structure as possible. Cut grass and eliminate weeds. Remove fallen fruit or nuts. Remove fecal matter (rodents, bats, birds). Sanitize animal fecal matter after removal. Investigate secondary Pest potential from primary Pest infestation (e.g. fleas, mites).
