Characteristics

Fleas are small, wingless insects ranging in size from 1-10 millimetres. You have more chance of finding them if you have a cat or a dog.

  • A laterally compressed body
  • Greatly enlarged hind legs allowing them to jump long distances
  • Piercing sucking mouthparts
  • Strong tarsal claws which enable them to grip their hosts
  • Rear pointing hairs and bristles to allow for easy movement through the hosts hair or fur.

The following 3 steps are proven to give the best results

1.    Pet treatment

Your animal needs to be treated before application. Consult with your Vet for best products. Ensure pets are treated with a suitable registered insecticide to avoid re-infestation of the treated premises.

2.    Clean Premises

Inside: A thorough vacuuming or steam cleaning of all interior floor surfaces must take place before our treatment. All floor areas should be thoroughly and frequently washed and swept as part of ongoing hygiene. Other areas are floorboard cracks and wall floor joints.

Pick up all clothes etc from the floor and where practical hot wash them.

Vacuuming may collect eggs and other stages of the flea life cycle. However, larvae tend to hold onto the base of the carpet fibres.

You will need to vacuum areas where pet hair and lint accumulate, carpet edges, under furniture and in areas where the pet sleeps. Ensure that the vacuum bag is emptied outside into a garbage bin or bag less cleaners are emptied into a bag that is then sealed and disposed of outside and in the bin. Any pet bedding should be disposed of washed or dry cleaned.

Outdoors: the grass must be closely mowed to enable a thorough treatment. If possible dampen soil areas.

3.    Insecticide application

We will treat internally with an Insect Growth regulator. If used alone on established pest populations it may take up to 3-4 weeks for fleas for populations to decline.
