Conquering pest infestations in countless homes and businesses for over 20 years, Terminix Canada’s Ontario branch has the professional ﬂea control you need.
Our reliable and highly trained ﬂea exterminators know what it takes to remove bloodsucking ﬂeas from your home. Living on the bodies of your beloved pets like cats and dogs, ﬂeas feed on the blood of these animals to produce eggs. That’s why they’re often found in your pets’ resting areas. Elsewhere, ﬂeas can bite human skin too after being transported from your pet’s fur. Releasing histamine, this causes red, itchy bumps to form that are typically discovered on the legs and feet.
Rest assured, our team of ﬂea pest control professionals at Terminix Canada’s Ontario branch are experienced in controlling ﬂea populations.
For more information about ﬂeas, visit our Pest Library.
Flea infestations start when ﬂeas attach themselves to pets from infested grassy areas and yards outdoors. When pets return indoors, ﬂeas are transported inside and reproduce. Before you know it, a full-scale ﬂea infestation has taken place!
Urban wildlife like raccoons and opossums can also transport these biting nuisances into residential environments. That’s why we use environmentally friendly methods for eﬀectively controlling ﬂea infestations.
Besides pets’ resting areas, ﬂeas are often found on bedding, carpets, furniture and cracks in ﬂooring. In other words, areas where your pet cat or dog has been living. Fleas prefer warm and moist spaces with most ﬂea infestations taking place during summer where a favourable warmer climate aids their survival.
Signs that a ﬂea infestation has taken place include:
• Pets excessively scratching, licking or biting their fur
• Spotting dotted insects on your pet’s fur
• Spotting ﬂeas on your carpet or furniture
If you’ve suﬀered a ﬂea infestation in Toronto or throughout southern Ontario, Terminix Canada’s quality ﬂea control service includes four steps.
• Remove all items from the ﬂoor (E.g. toys, clothes, pet food)
• Wash or replace pet bedding
• Vacuum carpets, rugs, and areas beneath beds and furniture
• Clean all ﬂooring by sweeping and mopping
• Clean concrete ﬂoors with soap and water
• Remove all pets
• Make all outdoor shaded areas and crawlspaces available for treatment
• Arrange to leave home for several hours while the ﬂea treatment has time to dry
• Pets should be treated at the same time a home is treated. Pet treatment should always take place under the direction of a veterinarian.
• Terminix Canada’s professional ﬂea removal gets rid of ﬂeas by using the latest ﬂea control products. Where ﬂea infestations are active, our professional ﬂea exterminators will apply a residual treatment combined with an insect growth regulator, especially in places where pets rest or sleep.
• Treatment is usually applied to shaded areas, shrubs and decks where pets rest and sleep
Our trained, government-licensed pest exterminators will protect your home against pests.
