Malden Flea Control
There is a popular misconception regarding insects in the Northern United States. This enduring rumor holds that pest insects “up north” are few and far between when compared to anywhere else. The people of Massachusetts know this to be anything but the case.
Spiders, ticks, mosquitos, and all other sorts of insects are right at home in states like Massachusetts. Along with them come the diseases, West Nile Virus, Lyme Disease, and others. This is certainly no good for anyone, no matter where you are from.
One pest that pet owners in particular are familiar with is the notorious flea. These tiny but agile blood-suckers jump from place to place searching for the next victim to bite. Pets and people alike make great meals. The result is itchy, burning flea bites that are an annoyance and susceptibility to infection. Hundreds and even thousands of fleas can take over a home or yard space, and can actually kill an animal when numbers are great enough.
Flea lifecycle in Maden
The lifecycle of the flea lends to its high rank in the world of pests. Flea larva begin life quickly searching for any organic matter to feed on. They soon develop into adult fleas, hunting for blood and reproducing via hearty eggs that can prosper in many conditions. This whole process takes place in under a month. The flea’s life span and physiological programming ultimately make it a top of the line pest.
Many people are tempted to address their flea problems by self-treating. This is certainly admirable, but is often an unrealistic option. With potentially thousands of fleas and their eggs scattered throughout the home’s interior and exterior, it is no wonder that the common complaint with self-treating is that minimal impact was noticed initially and that total annihilation is difficult and a very rare occurrence for the non-professional.
