Flea and Tick Removal in Toronto
Fleas and Ticks
Adult fleas are about 1/16 to 1/8 inches long, dark reddish brown, wingless, hard-bodied, have three pairs of legs (hind legs are enlarged enabling jumping) and are flattened vertically or side to side allowing for easy movement between the hair, fur or feathers of the host. Fleas are excellent jumpers, leaping vertically up to seven inches and horizontally thirteen inches. They have piercing, sucking mouth parts and spines on the body projecting backward. Eggs are smooth, oval and white. Larvae are ¼ inch long, slender, straw colored, brown headed, wormlike, bristly-haired creatures that are legless, have chewing mouthparts, are active, and avoid light. Pupae are enclosed in silken cocoons covered with particles of debris and normally laid in lint or dust.
Unfortunately, having pets in the house can attract fleas and ticks that harm humans. Fleas can even jump on you and hitch a ride into your home. Flea and tick infestations can occur at an alarming rate thanks to their ability to multiply in a matter of days.
Flea and tick removal will take some extra work but ICE can get rid of them with ease. Simply schedule a flea and tick control expert to visit your home. We’ll treat the house and the yard and your fleas and ticks will disappear—as long as you do not bring more into the house.
We can fog your home to eliminate a flea and tick infestation. Similar to our procedure for fogging for mosquitoes, we use eco-friendly products that are safe for children after the fogging.
For the treatment, anyone under the age of six and pregnant women must be out for 24 hours, and anyone else (including pets) needs to be out for 4 hours.
