Why Professional Treatment For Flea Problems Is Worth It

When you spot pests in your home, the first thought you might have is to run to the store to find some product to get rid of them. Unfortunately, with fleas in Elizabethtown, DIY treatments are often ineffective, and sometimes can do more harm than good. In the Elizabethtown area, you’ll want to turn to a professional to get treatment for flea control. The professionals at Action Pest Control will not only treat your flea problem, but also know how to help you reduce access points (for pests that can carry fleas inside) and can provide ongoing protection against fleas.

Difficulties of DIY flea treatments

DIY flea treatments like bombs or sprays may kill some fleas on contact but, if even one flea is left behind, you will have a flea problem all over again. Additionally, DIY treatments don’t tend to address the underlying problem of how fleas are getting access to your house. If your pets are bringing them in, that is an issue for your veterinarian. If you don’t have any pets and are still getting fleas, you might have another pest problem, such as mice or squirrels. It’s difficult to solve the whole problem with DIY treatments.

How professional flea treatment works

When you call a professional for home pest control, you gain a partner who will work with you and show you how to get rid of fleas. You’ll do some initial prep of your home - including vacuuming carpets and upholstery, and washing all loose items, such as pet beds. Your technician will locate entry points and issues outside your home that may be contributing to your flea problem. They will help you resolve these issues and will perform a flea treatment. After the initial treatment, you’ll need to do your part to continue to vacuum and follow your pest control professional's instructions.
