What we do to treat fleas..
We thoroughly inspect the areas for flea treatment and make sure everything is safe before we start.
We use a variety of formulations around your property. We use a special dust in your roof void and also your sub floor. We also treat various areas inside your home including hard floor surfaces, carpets, rugs, sofas and under furniture. We also treat outside areas as well including patios.
We use the safest pesticides available and recommend an insect growth regulator which interrupts the life cycle of the flea. These IGR’s enhance the treatment and are amongst the safest products available.
What you can do with our flea help and advice
Please ensure your pet is being treated for fleas. You can get formulations from the Supermarket or Vet which are safe and effective. You can also give your pet a flea bath or call Jim’s Dog Wash and they will happily provide this service as well.
Your bedding needs to be washed in hot water. You will need to do the same with your pet’s bedding as well.
Thorough vacuuming of all hard floor surfaces and carpets and rugs is also important. Ensure the contents of your vacuum cleaner are double bagged before disposal.
With your help and co-operation we can ensure a flea free zone for you and your pets.
