Dog Fleas

Pest Identification

This flea is much like the cat flea, it looks very much like the cat flea, but it will have a wider variety of hosts to feed from.  They can live without food for several months, but cannot reproduce unless the female has a blood meal. 

Do you have Dog Fleas?

Our Method of Success

To control the flea, the host needs to be treated (K9 Advantix, new chewable methods, flea bath, etc.).  All floor areas need to be treated, especially carpeted areas and cloth furniture.  An insect growth regulator is added to the product to help control the egg stage of reproduction.  Once the treatment is completed, vacuuming twice a day will be necessary to help the adult flea to hatch out of the pupae.  A central vacuum is not ideal, but a vacuum with a rotating brush. Vibration from the vacuum is required, not the actual sucking up of dirt. Flea Control, sometimes, can take up to two weeks.
