Fleas

Fleas

Fleas are pests of humans and their pets.  A female will lay a few eggs each day up to 400. Most eggs will hatch within a few days in ideal conditions.  Flea Larvae are maggot like creatures that feed on fecal dropping of adult fleas. If a home is left vacant, flea eggs can actually lay dormant for almost a year. Vibrations will trigger emergence from the egg. We suggest vacuuming as much as you can before our application. Most homeowners spend more money trying to rid the problem themselves, then then it would by calling us. The problem with the “Foggers” is that they don’t leave a residual, this means they just kill the adults. Our products contain “IGRS” or Insect Growth Regulators”  with adulticides. So we are able to pursue flea control by destroying the adults and with the IGR’s interrupt the development of the fleas growth. These products leave a residual which will also help with the egg emergence issue. We recommend all pets to see a veterinarian. You will have to leave home for at least 4 hours the day of treatment. Depending on the severity of the problem, you may need a follow up in 2 weeks.
