Flea & Tick Control
Peerless Pest Control uses only the most up to date and best performing chemicals and procedures to eliminate fleas and ticks. Although fleas and ticks are different, they both come from the same place and both are around humans for the same reason. Blood. That is their food source. Fleas can become very abundant if you have pets or rodent issues. Ticks are primarily an outside pest. We have procedures to eliminate both.
Fleas are truly devoted to their work. In one day, a single flea can bite your cat or dog more than 400 times. During that same day, the flea can consume more than its body weight of your pet's blood. And before it's through, a female flea can lay hundreds of eggs on your pet, ensuring that its work will be carried on by generations to come.
Flea bites may be merely a nuisance to some pets, but to others, they can be dangerous. They can cause flea allergy dermatitis—an allergic reaction to proteins in flea saliva. A pet's constant scratching to rid itself of fleas can cause permanent hair loss and other skin problems. A pet can get a tapeworm if it eats a flea that has one. And flea feasts on your pet's blood can lead to anemia and, in rare cases, death.
Completion of life cycle from egg to adult varies from 2 weeks to 8 months. Usual hosts for fleas dogs, cats, rats, mice, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, opossums, foxes, chickens and humans.
In just 30 days, 10 female fleas under ideal conditions, can multiply to over a quarter million!
Along with treating your home for fleas, it is also recommended the animals be treated. Peerless Pest Control offers Petcor at each of our locations.

Gardening, camping, hiking, and playing outdoors - when enjoying these activities, don't forget to take steps to prevent bites from ticks that share the outdoors. Ticks can infect humans with bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause serious illness.
Know where to expect ticks. Ticks live in moist and humid environments, particularly in or near wooded or grassy areas. You may come into contact with ticks during outdoor activities around your home or when walking through leaf litter or near shrubs.
If you suspect that you have ticks on your property, have found ticks on your clothing, or have been bitten by a tick while outdoors, it is best to treat the areas where the ticks are living. Our technicians are trained to identify those areas and to treat them properly.
