Pet stores and veterinarian offices aren’t the only places that get infested with fleas! It only takes the presence of a pet in your home or office to invite them in. Even though the pet may only be inside for a little while, what they left behind may be around a long time!
Fleas are common in homes that have pets, especially dogs and cats, feeding on the blood of animals and humans. Their bites leave a red itchy mark by don’t swell like mosquito bites or bee stings. These bites are a sure sign of these pests in your home.
Our treatment service allows you to make your home safe from these annoying pests. It is important to note that infestation does not only effect pets in your home, but you and your family too. That’s why it is important to call a specialist to identify the hotspots and free your home of the infestation.
Before The Flea Treatment
Remember, a treatment requires you to work with us in order to succeed with wiping out these pests from your home. Before one of our technicians comes for an inspection, here are some important things you need to do:
- Remove pets before the treatment starts in your home.
- Sweep and vacuum your home before the treatment; they love to hide under the carpets, furniture, and bedding.
- Clear all items including dishes and toys, furniture, and bedding; don’t leave anything for the them to hold on to.
- Mow your lawn before the treatment so they get no chance to hide in the grass or leaves when the treatment is done outdoors.
- Dispose of items that are heavily infested.
Since the main source of inviting them into your home is your pets, make sure to inform the pest exterminator about the area where your pet sleeps, eats, plays and moves around. All these measures are necessary to make sure your treatment is successful.
