How to Eliminate Fleas from Your Home & Yard

Massachusetts provides a thriving environment with a variety of wildlife to latch onto. These insects can get a ride very close to your home and then latch onto your family pet to get inside of your residence. Fleas are wingless insects that measure to be about 1/8 inch in length, which can make them difficult to see. Although these insects do not have wings, they do have very long legs; which give them the ability to jump long distances to get onto their next host. A flea has a 7 inch vertical leap and can jump horizontally over a foot. They can easily jump from wildlife to family pet to inside of your home. Do not discredit the abilities of the flea, they will make every effort to find a new host and begin to lay eggs.
