Flea Control Services for your home
There are more than 2,000 species of fleas, the most common of which is the cat flea. It feeds on cats, dogs, humans and other mammals. An interesting fact about the cat flea is that unlike other fleas, the cat flea can stay on its host and can consume up to 20 blood meals per day. The cat flea also has the potential of carrying many different diseases. After a flea bites a human, a small red dot with a single puncture point develops. The flea usually bites and feeds off its victims around the ankle areas.
There is a difference to keep in mind with ant and spider bites: they leave two puncture marks. Mosquito bites and bee stings normally result in swelling around the area.
A sure fire way to tell if your home is infested with fleas is to figure out where the fleas are concentrated and place a white piece of paper on the floor. Fleas are drawn to the color white, so they should collect on the paper.
Once you've confirmed and identified the infestation of fleas in your home, it's time to call in the flea control experts! Activ Pest specializes in natural flea control and can have your flea infestation eliminated in no time!
Delaware Rodent Control Services
As the winter months approach, mice - in particular, the Deer Mouse and the White Footed Mouse - are invading residential structures. They often seek refuge in garages, attics, crawlspaces, and sheds, leaving traces of fecal matter on your countertops, in your cabinets, on dishes, pots, and pans. Even scarier are the things that are not visible - traces of saliva and urine that contaminates your food and living space. Hantavirus has recently caught notoriety in the media with reports of seven infected people in California. Three of those people infected with Hantavirus were fatalities. The Center for Disease Control also has reported a case of Hantavirus in Pennsylvania and one in West Virginia. The Deer Mouse and the White Footed Mouse are known carriers of Hantavirus.
Rodent pest control in a residential structure is easily achieved by a Pest Management Professional by exclusion and baiting tactics. Contact Activ Pest Solutions, your Rodent Exterminator, at 302-645-1502 and schedule an evaluation of your home by one of our highly trained technicians.
Spider and Spider Mite Control
Activ Pest Solutions focuses on eliminating spiders from your residence as part of our regular service. In fact, we are one of the few companies that also routinely remove accessible webs during the treatment process. Some may find this surprising but many times we are asked by homeowners to try to avoid treating any spiders during their services. This is because they actually consume many other insects, and we are happy to accommodate such requests.
Spiders are predatory creatures, feeding on other insects. Our inspections focus on additional pest control issues, that you may be unaware of, yet may directly contribute to your spider problem. Our clients often complain of spiders setting up shop around front doors and porches. Many times this can be attributed to light sources in the evening attracting flying insects. This, in turn, attracts the spiders like a buffet. Customers who live in marsh land areas will often continue to experience this throughout much of the year. Routine pest management can suppress these types of ongoing issues.
Mites are another common pest in landscapes and gardens that feed on many fruit trees, veggies, and other plants. Although related to insects, mites are not insects but rather are members of the arachnid class along with spiders and ticks. Spider mites are the most common mite pests in the garden and on the farm. Call us today and inquire about our spider pest control services.
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Treatment
The brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) is an overly opportunistic winter house invader. When threatened, the BMSB emits a foul and unpleasant odor.
Starting in late August, BMSBs begin their search for an over wintering harborage site. Home owners are completely unaware that their home is being occupied by these tenacious pests until the cold weather sets in and the BMSBs start to make their appearance in the living areas of your home. Home owners battling this pest have described the invasion as maddening or overwhelming.
BMSB’s are difficult to control since they are resistant to most pesticides. At Activ Pest, we have nailed down a few very successful solutions that will extinguish this pest. The timing of preventative treatments is crucial. If you would like your home to be stink bug free, give us a call at 302-645-1502.

Bat Removal in Selbyville, DE
Delaware is home to the Little Brown Bat. These are small animals that rarely weigh more than 0.5 oz. They can eat up to half their body weight each night. In fact, little brown bats can be beneficial if you have a mosquito or moth problem due to how much they eat. Bats can carry diseases like rabies though.

Tick Control in Selbyville, DE
Ticks must feed on the blood of an animal in order to grow and reproduce. Ticks don’t fly or jump. Rather, a tick climbs to the ends of blades of grass or weeds and waits quietly with its front legs extended until it can grab onto a passing host. Ticks spread diseases to people, pets, and other animals. Germs that may be present in their saliva are transmitted as they feed on the person or animal. These germs include bacteria and viruses that cause such serious diseases as Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Human ehrlichiosis.
Ticks are most common in the woods or overgrown places and where the ground is covered with leaf litter, thick weeds or high grass. Ticks may also be found on well-mowed lawns, or even inside your home.
