It could be fleas!

Pest Facts from HomeTeam

Fleas are small, reddish-brown, wingless insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Not only are they a source of irritation, but can carry and spread disease. Controlling fleas is a large annual expense for some pet owners. But even when you have no pets, structures can still become infested. Animals such as bats, rats and raccoons can reside in structures and might be the source of the problem.

One of the best ways to control fleas is by thoroughly cleaning. If you suspect you have fleas, treat your pets and clean their areas on a regular basis. Vacuuming can remove flea larvae and eggs from carpets. Be sure to clean under furniture and along walls and discard your vacuum bags.

If the problem persists contact the branch office nearest to you to find out how HomeTeam can help you control fleas in and around your home.
