Flea Control

 

Fleas are the bane of pet owners. According to a 2015 study by Nielsen, Americans spend $379.1 million annually on flea and tick products. But you don’t have to have a pet to experience fleas. Other pests, such as rats and bats can carry fleas, and if the previous owner of your home kept a pet with fleas, these pests may still live in the carpets.

Why Fleas Are Troublesome

Fleas feed on the blood of a host animal—usually cats, dogs, and livestock—by biting and sucking out blood. Flea bites are not initially painful, but bites quickly become itchy and inflamed, causing pain as they develop. As pets or humans scratch the bites, the lesions may bleed or become infected.

Where Fleas Are Found

Fleas will happily live in both pet and human bedding—mattresses, pillows, and blankets are all susceptible. Carpets, area rugs, and furniture make good places for fleas to hide as well. Dog houses, kitty posts, and other pet accessories are also prime locations to find fleas.

Why Fleas Are Tough to Get Rid Of

The life cycle of fleas gives these pests an incredible survival ability. Fleas are not easily controlled by over-the-counter products. Prevention is the best way to ensure you don’t experience an infestation, but if you’re already dealing with a flea problem then you’ll need a long-acting insecticide. If you are already dealing with an infestation, contact us for treatment that can break the lifecycle and eliminate the problem.

Putman Peat Management has been providing service for us at 2 different houses over the last year 1/2. They have done a variety of projects for us from an initial termite/pest inspection to annual reinspections and installing new crawl space liner and vents. They were professional as well as personable in their service and reasonable in the coat of their work. Very happy to continue working with them.

When I bought my house, it hadn't been lived in for 3 years so the bugs had made it their home. Putman went above and beyond to make sure they all went away.Recently I had an issue with mice, and not only did they come out to take care of them, they came back out to remove the dead mouse under my house.Love this company, especially since it is local!

Professional, prompt service. Marty and Richard are courteous, friendly and knowledgeable! After treating our home initially, Richard called us every year around our anniversary date to schedule an annual maintenance check, without our having to keep up with it. He arrived on time, inspected the entire crawl space thoroughly and even alerted us to small non-pest-related maintenance issues (insulation which needing tacking back up, etc.) We appreciate Putman's excellent service and commitment to keeping our home safe from pests and other problems. Call them before getting quotes from anyone else. They are top-notch.
