Fleas are No Simple Problem.
Fleas are more than a nuisance. They are annoying to humans, but they are also a danger to you and your pet’s health. Fleas are much more difficult to get rid of … and keep removed … than most retail products would have you believe. It can take several weeks and treatments to eliminate fleas altogether. B&B’s flea programs, however, are the proven solution to protect your home and pets from fleas.
B&B provides comprehensive indoor and outdoor programs designed to work on all stages of the flea life cycle. It is really the only way to assure flea control.
Over 2,000 Kinds of Fleas!
Not all fleas are alike; in fact there are over 2000 described species of fleas. But by far the most common domestic flea is the cat flea. Cat fleas are about 1-3 mm in length, reddish-brown to black, and wingless, with strong hind legs that are well adapted for jumping and running through hair and feathers. The adults remain on the hosts and the females require a blood meal to produce eggs, which hatch within two days. One female flea can lay up to 27 eggs per day for around 9 days. The young fleas feed on dandruff, grain particles, skin flakes and adult flea fecal matter. The eggs are commonly found in pet bedding, carpet and upholstery.
More than annoying, fleas can transmit disease and cause skin irritation, plus transmit diseases and allergens to other pets. And their bites itch!
You’ve Got To Eliminate Fleas Everywhere! Effective control requires eradication from the pet, the home, and the yard. Removal from the pet alone is inadequate, it doesn’t solve the problem.
Flea Control is a THREE Part Process.
- Treat the pet. (B&B can also help you with that. We offer Frontline Flea Control for cats & dogs.) Removal of the fleas by a veterinarian, grooming parlor or pet owner on the same day the home is treated.
- Vacuum the home prior to treatment. Concentrate on all areas the pet frequents. Wash pet bedding and all throw rugs.
- Treat the yard.
B&B’s Flea Programs are designed to effectively protect your home, family and pets. They work together inside and outside on all stages of the flea life cycle. Our indoor treatment is applied in the areas where the fleas live and breed with an effective product that includes an Insect Growth Regulator to prevent eggs from becoming active adults. Our outdoor treatment is applied to areas that surround the home and all areas that pets may visit.
