Keeping Fleas Off Your Portland Property

There’s something about being itchy that is almost unbearable. If you can’t scratch at an itch, it can become nearly impossible to concentrate on anything else. Unfortunately, even after you scratch an itch, it doesn’t always solve the problem. If you have bug bites that are itchy, you know it’s only a matter of time before they start to itch again.

The best way to avoid the annoyance of itchy bug bites is to avoid biting bugs. Unfortunately, that’s often easier said than done. However, when it comes to many pests, Kanga Pest can help you avoid bug bites, at least around your own home and property, by removing the pests that bite. In Portland, one of the most common of these annoying biting pests is the flea. 

Luckily, expert flea control in Portland is available from Kanga Pest. Many people think that fleas are only a problem for people with pets, but the truth is that any home, even one that doesn’t have dogs or cats, can end up with a flea infestation. If you’ve been waking up with bug bites all over your ankles, it’s likely that fleas have found their way into your home. Let Kanga Pest get rid of them for you.


Our Flea Control Services

To get rid of fleas in Portland, you have to have a treatment that is extremely thorough and spaced out over time. It’s important to interrupt the flea life cycle, which means multiple treatments are necessary to ensure you don’t end up with another issue a few weeks or months down the line.

At Kanga Pest, our flea treatment includes the whole interior of the home, exterior of the yard, and, if need be, the crawl space of the home. Because we are so detailed, we see fantastic results from our flea control services. 

During our treatment, the application is directly made to the flooring and couches of your home. If pet bedding is present and in need of treatment, we include this as well. The product we use is an adulticide and insect growth regulator mixed together. If you have a crawl space that needs to be treated, we can fog it. This eliminates any current population emerging from the crawl space while the yard is treated with granules.

Our flea control service includes three treatments that are done every two weeks. The price of this service is based on your home’s square footage. Although no guarantee is included in this service, if all of our treatments have concluded and you’ve done everything you need to do, we will offer a free service if the problem persists.


Why Portland Fleas Are Bad News

Fleas are persistent nuisances that often plague homes and pets, making them a significant source of frustration for affected homeowners. While small in size, don’t be fooled: what they lack in stature they more than make up for in numbers. 

These blood-sucking insects are notorious for their annoying bites, causing itching and discomfort for both humans and animals. Worse, flea infestations can quickly escalate, as a single flea can lay hundreds of eggs in a short period. This rapid reproduction cycle can lead to a full-blown infestation in a matter of weeks, making them particularly challenging to eradicate without professional intervention. However, fleas are not only irritating; they can also be  dangerous. They can transmit various diseases to both pets and humans, including tapeworms, Bartonella, and various fevers. Additionally, flea bites can lead to secondary skin infections due to excessive scratching, posing a significant health risk. 

Attempting to eliminate fleas with DIY methods can be a frustrating and ineffective endeavor. Fleas have evolved to become highly resilient pests, capable of hiding in cracks, crevices, and deep within carpets, making them difficult to target with over-the-counter treatments. Furthermore, flea eggs and pupae can remain dormant for extended periods, making it challenging to completely eradicate an infestation without professional expertise. 

For these reasons and more, when fleas are biting, it’s time to call the home pest control professionals at Kanga Pest Control. Between our comprehensive treatment methodology, our use of industry-leading tools and equipment, and our years of experiene, there is no one better-equipped to handle fleas in Portland or the surrounding areas.
