We had Spectrum treat our home for ants this spring. Once the weather warmed up in April we were finding them in every room of the house. It took a few days to get rid of all of them, but finally we are ant free.

Common Monroeville Bugs
Fleas in Monroeville PA
For homes that have indoor or outdoor pets, fleas may become an issue. Bites from these bugs can transmit disease from animals to humans and vice versa. This is just one of the reasons that control is important.
In order to understand how to get rid of them, it is important to understand the life cycle of these pests. They have 4 life cycles: egg, larva, pupa and adult. In order for the larvae to transform into pupae, it must remain in the cocoon for a period of 2 to 4 weeks. A standard population will consist of 5% adults, 10% pupae, 35% larvae, and 50% eggs. The larvae will avoid light and are blind. The bodies of the bug can withstand a great amount of pressure, which can make them tricky to kill.
For pet owners, controlling fleas should be a part of your daily routine. Floors should be vacuumed on a regular basis in order to remove any existing eggs. Make sure that you vacuum in the corners and the upholstery of your furniture as well. Pets should only be allowed to sleep on bedding that can be cleaned easily. Blankets or towels make a soft bed for a pet and can be easily tossed into a washing machine. It is also a good idea to only allow your pets into areas that can be cleaned easily as well.
One of the obvious signs that your pet is affected by fleas is excessive itching. To help cut down on their exposure, try to keep them away from weeds, wooded areas and tall grasses when they are outside. There are certain medications that can be used to treat their skin and fur monthly. This medication will help keep the bugs from attaching to your animals and ending up in your home. If an over the counter method is not working for your pets, speak with your veterinarian about some of the advanced options that may be available.
Methods of Flea Removal
If there is an infestation in your home, there are several proactive steps that you should take in order to get rid of them. First, vacuuming daily will be the most effective way to quickly get rid of these pests. A steam cleaner will help kill any fleas that are in the carpet as well. Make sure that any fabrics that are affected are washed in hot water as soon as you notice any activity of these bugs. If the infestation is severe, a spray or fogger may be used in order to kill them off. Make sure to follow the instructions for these products as many can be toxic.
The best way to decrease the populations of these pests is to practice control early before the adults can have a blood meal and then breed. An adult can live for up to a year without eating, which is why it is important to get rid of them as soon as possible.
However, if you have a particularly severe infestation, the professional help of an exterminator may be needed. Give Spectrum Pest Control a call for same day service in Monroeville, PA!
