Fleas & Ticks Belong Outdoors, Not In Your Home
There are many great reasons to spend some time under the sun when you live here in Oklahoma City, but beware of bringing undesired passengers back inside when you return to your home! Fleas and ticks are common pests in Oklahoma City that are eager to hitch a ride right into your home. These parasitic pests would love nothing more than to make a meal out of you, your family, and your pets and should never be allowed to live in your house.
Fleas are primarily a concern for pet owners, but they're especially a problem here in Oklahoma City, where our warm summers allow them to thrive. Ticks are arachnids and are more closely related to spiders than insects. Ticks transmit a greater diversity of disease-causing organisms to animals and humans than any other arthropod. Tick bites can also cause paralysis, toxicosis, and allergic reactions.
When experiencing problems with fleas and ticks, it is important to contact a professional for assistance. Killin' It Termite and Pest is your local authority on Oklahoma City pest pressures. Our family-owned-and-operated company uses advanced Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods and the highest-rated products available to provide you with the ultimate pest control experience.

Our Oklahoma City, OK Flea & Tick Service
One question people always ask is, "How do I get rid of fleas and ticks?" Once you've got them, these tiny pests can be tough to detect and even tougher to kill. When you're in the heat of a flea and tick infestation, the temptation may be to attempt to control the problem yourself. Killin' It Termite and Pest always recommends professional services as there are many concerns where DIY pest control methods are concerned. Unfortunately, DIY pest control methods and products often cause more harm than good. Proper pest control requires chemical applications that can be dangerous if not handled by a trained professional, and these materials are just not as effective as professional products. Professional exterminators have the training to use pesticides responsibly. The wrong products and treatments may drive pests away temporarily, only for them to return in larger numbers than before.
At Killin' It Termite and Pest, we provide expert solutions for fleas and ticks near your home. We begin by assigning you homework. Don't worry; it's only some simple preparations!
- Clean and vacuum your furniture.
- Launder pet bedding in hot water or replace it.
- Treat pets for fleas on the day of our service.
- Pick up all items from floors and under beds.
- Vacuum all carpeted areas and mop non-carpeted areas as often as possible.
- Seal any used vacuum cleaner bags and throw them away outside.
- Wash all linens in hot water, especially if pets sleep in beds.
Every service begins with a visual inspection. Once we've determined the source of your activity, we can start our treatment. We apply a liquid treatment to baseboards and wall voids and treat carpets with an aerosol product. We also recommend purchasing PetCore, a pet-friendly flea treatment.
For ticks, we focus on the exterior by misting trees in the yard and heavily treating high-traffic areas. Keeping the lawn well-manicured helps to keep our treatment effective. Learn more about our flea and tick control options by reaching out today.
