Fleas and Ticks Control in South Florida is a top priority. Fleas and Ticks often result from cat fleas (Ctenocephalides felis), live in many South Florida homes. Dog fleas (Ctenocephalides canis) resemble cat fleas, but are rarely in Florida. Stick tight fleas (Echidnophaga gallinacea) become problematic, where pets frequent areas near poultry. Female stick tight fleas firmly attach themselves around the ears and eyes of their host, and are stubborn. Specialized Pest Control will competently rid you of pests with our outstanding Fleas and Tick Control in South Florida.
Because adult fleas are only about 1/8 inch long, it is difficult to see the characteristics which describe them. These reddish-brown, wingless insects look as if they are walking on edge. Cat fleas have both pronotal and genal combs, with piercing-sucking mouthparts through which they obtain blood meals from their hosts. At the first indication of any of these pests, call our experts, and get FREE In-Home evaluation and learn about your best options in our Programs for Flea and Tick Control in South Florida.
Our flea and tick Control South Florida expert team will tell you that Adult cat fleas remain on the host, feeding, mating, and egg laying. Females lay 20 to 50 eggs per day. Cat flea eggs are pearly white, oval, and about 1/32 inch long. Eggs fall from the pet, land on bedding/carpeting, and hatch in 2 to 5 days. Given these points, it is very important that you book our services regularly to determine your Flea and tick status.
Our experts on Flea and Tick Control in South Florida identify Flea larvae easily; 3/16 inch long, hairy, wormlike with a distinct, brownish head, no eyes or legs. Larvae feed on dried blood/excrement from adult fleas. Larval growth is rapid in areas of 75% relative humidity.
Larvae feed and crawl around for 8 to 15 days before building silken cocoons to pupate in, transforming into adults. Pet hair/skin/carpet fibers cover pupae, as camouflage. Flea larvae develop at high temperatures, 70° to 90°F. areas. At cool temperatures, fleas remain in cocoons for 12 months. Warm temperatures and pressure( walking on/vacuuming carpet) stimulate them from the cocoon. We know pests inside out! Book our Flea and Tick Control in South Florida.
