How To Keep The Tampa Fleas At Bay

Fleas are a common household pest in the Tampa area. Fleas have many ways to get into your home, and once there can be difficult to eliminate. Fleas need blood to reproduce, and if they are inside your home they will subject you, your family, and your pets to painful, repetitive bites as they seek blood. Fleas have fast reproduction rates. They shed eggs everywhere, which can survive for up to 10 days. The average flea can lay up to 2,000 eggs in its lifetime, and as such it only takes a few fleas to cause a big problem.  

Flea bites can cause you endless grief. If you are struggling with fleas in your home, call EcoTech Pest Control. We can help you with any pest control in Tampa.

  • Sores. If your pets are showing signs of bites on their skin, it can very likely be fleas that are causing them.
  • Seeing dark specks on your pet’s fur. These are flea droppings.
