All adult fleas will be killed instantly and the pending eggs will be killed when they hatch in approximately 21 days.
Comprehensive Flea Extermination Program
Please be aware that a comprehensive flea extermination program typically requires treatment of all furred pets that live in the home, as well as treatment of the lawn where fleas typically live and breed, and the structure where the pets live, as well. We will provide a la carte flea extermination services. However, our guarantee applies only when the entire flea eradication protocol has been followed.
Fleas are very tough and persistent pests. During particularly bad flea years, we have even witnessed flea infestations in homes where no pets live. In these cases, there tend to be neighbors who have failed to follow standard flea control measures and the fleas have migrated into the neighboring lawns and homes. We will create a flea barrier for your property that will protect your home and family even in the midst of a neighborhood-wide flea infestation.
The Dangers of Flea Infestations
Aside from the obvious discomfort of being bitten by fleas and suffering from the itchiness, dermatitis, and potential infections from scratching the bites, there are several serious dangers of allowing flea infestations to continue unabated, including the potential to contract the following health threats:
- Rickettsial Infections (Typhus and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever)
- Bartonella/Cat-Scratch Fever
Severe infestations can also cause anemia as a result of blood loss.
Flea Extermination Preparation
Our flea extermination program is safe, but intense. The following preparation steps should be completed before your home is treated:
- All Areas of the House Must be Easily Accessible
- All Food Items, Toys, and Clothing Should be Stored Away
- Birds Must be Removed From the Premises During Treatment
- Companion Animals Must be Treated With Appropriate Flea Medications Before or During the Procedure
- Fish Tanks Must be Covered and Pumps Must be Turned Off
- Floors Should All be Uncluttered and Thoroughly Cleaned
All people and companion animals must vacate the area during the treatment. You and your pets will typically be allowed to return back to the premises within one to three hours following completion of the treatment application. When the treatment has dried, re-entry will be safe and virtually odorless. Within 21 days, all hatching fleas should emerge and die upon contact with the treatment. You should continue to apply flea treatment medication to your companion animals on a monthly basis.
