Give your yard and pets freedom from flea-dom.

Mosquito Joe Prevent Flea's from ruining you outdoor spaces

Reclaim your outdoor spaces with Mosquito Joe flea control!

Don’t mistake fleas as mere annoyances for cats, dogs, and sometimes even humans. Flea bites are itchy, their saliva contains a rash-causing allergen, and the bites can cause serious skin infections for cats or dogs that scratch incessantly. Many people don’t realize that fleas also carry diseases, just like mosquitoes and ticks. That’s why flea control is essential to keeping your family and pets healthy and happy.

With Mosquito Joe’s flea control services and your own flea-prevention efforts, you can reclaim your lawn and backyard for your family’s enjoyment.

Flea Control

Mosquito Joe does more than rid your yard of mosquitoes — we also provide efficient, effective flea control. Our friendly service professional comes to your home to carefully spray your property along the borders, in thick grass, overgrown shrubs, and all locations where fleas like to hide. 

Our barrier spray eliminates adult fleas on contact. It penetrates the tough exoskeleton, which makes them so tough to kill. Although fleas can jump enormous distances relative to their size, our application methods cut down their escape routes. Our monthly flea control service provides the most successful flea control solution.

Flea Control and Prevention

At Mosquito Joe, we know it’s not enough to rid your yard of adult fleas. To enjoy your patio and outdoor spaces bite-free, we must target the flea life cycle at every stage. Addressing the entire flea life cycle is critical to producing effective flea control and prevention. 

A female flea can lay 2,000 eggs, and it takes anywhere from three weeks to several months to complete the life cycle, depending on conditions. Genuine flea prevention requires addressing all stages of development and killing eggs, larvae, pupae, and biting adults. 

According to the ASPCA, fleas can consume 15 times their own body weight in blood, and they can cause anemia and a significant amount of blood loss in humans and their pets over time. In some cases, flea anemia can be lethal, especially for very young or elderly cats and dogs. Flea bites can also cause severe skin rashes in people or animals who are allergic to them.

 A single adult flea can bite up to 400 times a day; this makes effective flea control and prevention essential to your family’s and your pets’ health care.

Types of Flea Control & Prevention Techniques

Several flea control and prevention techniques are available to pet owners and homeowners, and it is generally best to employ more than one. The options include:

  • Topical Medications – Monthly applications of topical flea control medication can protect your pets by killing and repelling biting adults. These topicals remain effective for several weeks so long as the animal does not get wet. However, make sure you check potential side effects before applying.
  • Oral Medications – There are also oral medications that not only provide flea control but also prevent heartworm disease in dogs and cats. Similar to topical applications, review the possible side effects carefully before using.
  • Sprays – Another approach to flea control applied to your pet comes in a spray form. Some flea and tick sprays remain effective for several months unless the animal gets wet. 
  • Shampoos – Flea and tick shampoos do a nice job removing adult insects and eggs from your pet’s skin and fur. However, they do nothing to prevent fleas from moving back in. Shampoos are most effective as part of a larger flea control strategy.
  • Collars – Flea and tick collars kill and repel fleas by distributing the active ingredient throughout your pet’s fur. Helpful for flea control, collars tend to have a strong smell that some people find off-putting.
  • Diatomaceous Earth – Diatomaceous earth, or DE, is a naturally occurring soft rock. In powder form, DE can be sprinkled on pet bedding, carpets, and other areas where fleas congregate. DE dries out fleas, killing them. However, you should avoid applying directly to your pet unless your vet says it’s okay to do so. 
  • Professional Flea Control – Fleas require a comprehensive approach to ensure you can enjoy your property free from biters. Regular barrier spray treatments from Mosquito Joe are essential to any flea control strategy.

Tips & Tricks for Additional Flea Prevention

Call Mosquito Joe, and our efficient and effective flea control service can help protect you, your pets, and your yard from fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. But there are additional steps you can take to keep your property free from biting fleas:

  • Keep grass mowed and trees trimmed. This is the opposite of curb appeal for fleas – they have nowhere to hide!
  • Take care not to overwater your lawn or garden. Fleas love moisture. Without it, your yard is less hospitable to fleas.
  • Don’t leave pet food unattended in your yard. This encourages feral pets and wildlife to investigate, and they’ll bring their fleas with them! An essential part of flea control is preventing new infestations. Opossums, raccoons, and stray cats are the worst offenders.
  • Use a monthly topical flea control treatment for your pets to eliminate the fleas’ primary food source.
  • Trim back any tree branches and high shrubs that would allow animals to crawl into your attic. If mice or rats can find their way in, fleas will come with them. Seal off any openings to crawl spaces, garages, sheds, or under decks where wild animals or stray dogs, or cats could gain entrance to your home. Flea prevention often comes down to reducing the potential of their places on your property where fleas can make a home.

With these techniques and professional pest control services from Mosquito Joe, flea control is within your reach. You can reduce your family’s exposure to fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, and the health risks they carry.
