Our Flea Control Service
Not only do fleas annoy cats and dogs, but they also bite humans, causing skin irritation, allergies, and diseases like typhus and tularemia. So we recommend putting your pets on a flea and tick prevention, then calling the experts at Dr. Pest Solutions to treat your property. This combination will ensure your family and four-legged friends are protected from fleas, especially during the warmer months.
Our Unique Approach To Flea Extermination
The best time to begin a flea control program is in Spring before you get adult fleas. But if you’re struggling with a full-blown infestation, fleas must be controlled at every stage of their life cycle. The team at Dr. Pest Solutions knows how to kill adult fleas and prevent future generations from breeding, giving you the long-term protection you deserve.
1. FLEA INSPECTION
We’ll first determine the severity of the infestation by inspecting the entire property. If you’re dealing with a flea problem, we’ll move forward with our flea treatment. Two or three services are required to eliminate this pest.
2. INTERIOR TREATMENT
We’ll carefully apply liquid residual and insect growth regulators (IGR) on all floor surfaces, paying attention to the areas your pets spend time. Not only does this approach kill fleas on contact, but it also interrupts the breeding cycle. Best of all, this method lasts for 4-6 months!
3. EXTERIOR TREATMENT
For short-term, but faster results, we’ll carefully spray a combination of liquid residual and insect growth regulator (IGR) to the areas your pet(s) frequent or wherever there is flea activity. For long-term, but slower results, we’ll use a granulated insecticide to kill all adult fleas in your yard.
Why Choose Dr. Pest Solutions
Frequently Asked Questions
Flea bites leave you with swollen, itchy marks. Hence the reason why your pets scratch so much after they’ve been bitten. And, in some cases, flea bites cause allergic reactions in humans. But the real problem is fleas carry insect-borne diseases just like mosquitoes and ticks. According to the CDC, the number of illnesses caused by flea bites tripled from 2004 to 2016. So if you’re dealing with a flea infestation, you need to act fast!
After we treat your yard for fleas, you need to ensure the product is completely dry before going outside. Depending on a variety of factors, like outdoor temperatures and humidity, we recommend you wait at least an hour to re-enter the service area. After this time has elapsed, it is safe for you and your family to enjoy your deck, pool, and yard again!
