For effective flea removal in Portland, don’t wait to contact Family Home Pest Control. Fleas live by a blood meal from a host which includes people, pets and other animals. Most often fleas are brought into the home from the outside by pets or people.
Fleas can jump quite high. They jump onto pets and hitch a ride into the house. As time goes by they reproduce eggs and those eggs drop off the pet and turn into larvae. Before you know it you have an infestation in your structure that requires professional flea removal in Portland.
Our pest control service has been providing Portland with flea removal for many years. Here in Portland, we have several species and some are more difficult to deal with than others. In preparation for flea treatment, as much floor space as possible needs to be cleared. This does not include beds and large furniture but closets and general floorspace needs to be cleared for treatment.
If the customer has a cat living in the house, more places may need to be cleared such as under beds. Cats can get almost anywhere and drop flea eggs. That’s why it’s important to clear more of the floorspace as possible to get an effective flea treatment.
During a flea treatment, our company uses multiple different types of pesticides. They are used for different reasons. Some are used as an IGR, or an insect growth regulator. That is a critical component of the treatment. It’s toxicity is extremely low and it is used to render the flea infertile on a longer-term basis, thereby terminating it’s reproductive ability. This way if the flea does not actually die from the insecticide it will at least not be able to reproduce, thus terminating the infestation. Your flea problem can be controlled with flea removal services.
In addition to our flea removal services we also provide bee, spider, cockroach, and ant removal services!

How do you prevent pests?Pest prevention depends on what you’re trying to prevent. Some best practices we always advise customers to follow are to keep all food items (including those for pets) in air-tight containers. Make sure there are no leaks in your home (including the attic and basement). Mechanical exclusion involves sealing off all entry points into the home. This is difficult for homeowners to accomplish without help, but you can keep your lawn and surrounding areas clean and free of debris. If there are any trees or bushes that provide roof access for pests, move these away from the home or trim them shorter than the roof line.
How do you control pests?Our exterminators use the right method for the job. We take into account the property, pest type,
and residents of the home. Certain methods aren’t used when small animals or children are present. We always target our efforts as well. That means identifying paths your pest uses, where they are present, and using their feeding areas and times against them to achieve the fastest and most complete results.
How is pest control done?
There are three types of pest control procedures:
- Biological pest control: This uses chemical agents and may involve baits, pheromones, sprays, and repellants.
- Physical pest control: Exterminators manually remove pests and use control methods like barriers, sealants, and environmental manipulation to control pests.
- Mechanical pest control: Mechanical devices include traps, bait stations, and other devices designed to prey on the behavior of a specific pest.
