Itching to get rid of your pet's fleas? We can help
The fleas on your dog, cat, or other pet are not just an itchy nuisance. Fleas can transmit various diseases and ailments to you and your furry friend. The illnesses include:
A flea that has fed on a plague-infested rodent can pass multiple forms of the plague to your pet and, ultimately, to you and your family
This disease can cause a fever and body aches for your pet and you.
If a pet is allergic to flea saliva, they can develop this painful skin issue.
Cat Scratch Disease
Also known as Bartonella henselae, this disease is transmitted by cat fleas and can lead to swollen lymph nodes and blisters on the body.
This infection, also called Flea Tapeworm, forms in cats when they ingest an infected flea during their frequent grooming sessions.
When a large population of fleas are feasting on you or your pet, the loss of blood will lead to further complications.
Our Three-Step Flea Treatment Process
Finding fleas on your pet can be very unsettling. Especially because you likely don’t know the full extent of the flea infestation. Fleas can lay eggs just about anywhere, and they can be difficult to eradicate from your home.
Our experienced technicians can search your home for flea eggs and destroy all of the little invaders in your Boise area home and keep them from terrorizing you and your pets. During an inspection, we will:
- Identify the fleas affecting the home
- Examine the ground, cracks, carpets, rugs, bedding, and upholstery for flea eggs
- Inspect the home in search of other animals, such as rodents or feral cats, that can be a source of food for the fleas
We need to understand the extent of the problem so we can create a proper flea treatment plan for your Boise area home.

Habits of Fleas in Boise, Idaho
Adult fleas are small and barely noticeable to the human eye. They are wingless but can still travel far by jumping. Fleas are a shiny orange color and, when looking under a microscope, you can see tiny little hairs that make it easier for them to traverse around an animal host.
Flea larvae don’t feed on blood, but they do consume organic debris, including the fecal matter of adults containing undigested blood. Once they reach adulthood, fleas will then select a host to feast upon. Fleas prefer hairy beasts as their host because of the protection the hair provides. Dogs, cats, rabbits, squirrels, rats, and mice — both wild and domestic — are their most common hosts.
The most common fleas in Boise, Idaho are cat fleas and dog fleas. Fleas usually gain entry into your home by hitching a ride from their host, such as a mouse, onto your pet. If fleas choose your lovable pet as your host, you might notice:
- Excessive scratching
- Hair or fur loss
- Red skin
- Flea feces on pet beds, carpet, or rugs
Dogs are usually infested in the hind quarter area, whereas cats seem to be more susceptible to fleas on their head and necks. Getting rid of fleas can be extremely difficult, which is why it is best to call a professional pest expert to treat your home.
