Serving the Humble Community & The Surrounding Areas


Fleas   Photo


Spending time outside with family and friends is something we all like to do; unfortunately, when you do, you are always among the insects that call the Humble area of Texas home. Some insects are just a nuisance to be around, while other pose threats by biting, stinging, or spreading diseases. Fleas are an example of biting pests we regularly encounter in outdoor spaces, including our backyards. Parks, fields, meadows, sandy areas, and wooded areas are full of biting fleas.

Fleas are prolific breeders, and wherever they end up, they will form large populations if environmental conditions are right. The warm, humid weather in Texas allows these pests to thrive year-round, and they are a constant threat both indoors and outdoors. Fleas are blood-feeding pests; their preferred hosts are cats, dogs, rodents, and other wild animals. They are constantly being introduced into our yards by stray pets and wild animals. Fleas enter our homes after coming into contact with us or our pets. These insects also regularly move from place to place on secondhand items like upholstered furniture or rugs.

To make your yard as unattractive to fleas as possible, we want to provide you with the following prevention tips:

  • Make sure you aren't unintentionally attracting rodents and other wild animals to your yard. Keep lids on trash cans, pick up uneaten pet food, and remove bird feeders.
  • Keep your grass cut short; fleas love to hide in tall grass.
  • Remove brush piles, leaf piles, and other debris that provides fleas with a damp, shady place to live.
  • Before bringing used rugs, upholstered furniture, bedding, or clothing into your home, inspect the items for hiding fleas.
  • Keep mice and other animals out of your house by sealing spaces you discover in its exterior.
