Searching for “Flea Pest Control in Franklin”?
Fleas thrive in hot, humid weather which is just the kind of weather that Franklin (and all of Middle Tennessee) experiences in June, July and August. A small flea population can quickly become a major infestation. One female flea can lay up to 2,000 eggs throughout her 100-day lifetime. So, don’t delay. Your “flea pest control Franklin” search has taken you to the right place. Homeowners can depend on Bug Authority; we’re just a phone call away.
Flea infestations are more than a major irritation. Flea bites can also be a source of disease for humans and pets. For example, fleas can carry typhus which can be life threatening for humans. Flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) and tapeworms are problems your pets may experience due to flea bites.
Flea Infestations Generally Start in the Yard
Warm-blooded animals carry fleas into your yard. Dogs and cats are prime suspects to do this, but wild animals such as squirrels, rabbits, and raccoons also carry fleas.
Your yard can be an inviting environment for fleas. They thrive in moisture and darkness. You can do a lot to make your yard inhospitable for fleas by:
- Keeping your grass mowed
- Trimming shrubs to let the sunshine in
- Avoiding over-watering
It’s a short trip from the yard to the house. Fleas move inside by hitching a ride on you or your pets. Once inside, fleas lay eggs in carpets, pet bedding, and other places that pets might rest.
