Fighting fleas to protect your pets

When your furry friend comes inside, they can carry unwanted pests in. Fleas jump on your dog or cat and then find other places to burrow in your house, like pet beds or carpet. Port City Pest helps guard your pet and your home from an unwanted infestation. All of our pesticides are registered with the EPS and are used responsibly in your home.

Spotting and eliminating fleas

Fleas are small, brown insects with compressed bodies that make it easy for them to move through your pet’s hair. They don’t have wings, but they can jump far distances. Fleas need a host in order to survive, and unfortunately, that can mean feeding on people. You’ll likely experience a flea bite before you see evidence of fleas unless you’ve seen Fido scratching frequently. Bites are itchy and can cause allergic reactions or even transmit diseases. At the first sign of fleas, it’s important to treat your pet and your property. Simply give us a call and we’ll visit your home for an assessment and recommend an immediate treatment and ongoing prevention.

Addressing Spiders in your home

If you ask us, eight legs are six too many. Spiders are one of the most common household insects, but they typically pose little to no threat. But their presence can still make living in your home uncomfortable, and some species can be venomous. Port City Pest exterminates arachnids both inside and outside your home.

Spotting and eliminating spiders

Spiders have eight legs and two body sections. They do not have wings, and they come in varying shades of brown and black. They’re likely entering your home through cracks in exterior doors and windows, or when items stored outside are brought in. Starting with extermination and moving to ongoing prevention, Port City Pest will design a program that fits the needs of your home. Call us for an assessment and treat at the first sign of spiders.

Port City Pest will never ask you to sign a contract. We want to earn your business with superior customer service and effective pest relief. You can cancel our services any time before your next scheduled treatment. If you aren’t happy with a treatment, we’ll happily refund your money.
