Why are fleas becoming such a big problem?
Fleas have always been a problem for pet owners and as such they are seen as a summer problem with a peak in flea activity following wet weather in June, July and August. Another part of the flea infestation problem is that they are becoming resistance to the pet applied anti-flea treatments. Many pet owners are reporting to the pest control industry instances of serious infestations despite the animal being treated with pesticides, our advice is to switch products for the active ingredients if your dog or cat brings home fleas.
We don't have a pet but we are getting bitten by something, is it fleas?
Flea bites will usually be on the ankles and lower legs as the fleas will be on the carpet, it maybe that you have had a cat come into the house through an open door and in the case of this being a new property, the previous occupants most likely had an infested pet. If there is no food supply for them, fleas like all insects are capable of going into a torpid state and this may last for months. Once they pick up vibration from you walking about inside the house they awaken and will start feeding.
Maidenhead Pest Control for an effective flea eradication.
We carryout a surface treatment using cutting edge chemicals to eradicate a flea infestation, we ask the occupants to thoroughly vacuum the carpets which is followed by the application of a liquid pesticide. This pesticide will last for around four to six weeks so we then ask for no more vacuuming until at least twenty-one days have passed, this way the fleas absorb the chemical and die.
The property has to be vacated after the treatment for at least four hours to allow the chemical to dry, safe for mammals the pesticide affects the insects nervous system. Pets need to be kept away from the interior until the surfaces are dry as these may pick up a small dose on their feet and ingest through grooming. Our technicians will talk you through a safe return time.
