Tips On How To Control Fleas
Do you need advice on how to control fleas from living in your home? Summer can be a cause for flea infestations due to the warm weather but flea larvae can stay alive through Winter. Fleas can deposit over 100 eggs per day in your carpet and home. Once you have fleas, they can be very difficult to get rid of without the assistance of a Professional Pest Control Technician.
There are some steps you can take to help prevent a flea infestation in the first place.
- Treatment of your pets
Pets are like family members and we love them dearly, but sometimes it is difficult to keep track of their health. If you have a pet that is not staying indoors all the time, then you need to get it on a flea prevention treatment regimen as soon as possible. Flea treatments available from your supermarket or vet are the first step for ensuring your pet is free of fleas. Your vet would be the best person to seek information from as to which pet medication is best for your pet. It is important to keep flea treatment up to date and a regular part of your pet’s care.
- Keep Your Home Clean
Ensure you vacuum regularly and get into all of the nooks and crannies, especially in areas where pets may sleep or socialise. Keep your pet’s bedding clean and washed with hot water, especially if you discover fleas on them. If they sleep in your bed or are on your furniture, wash these as well. After each vacuum clean out the bag or container to get rid of any potential flea eggs.
- Maintain Your Lawn
Fleas live happily outdoors in your garden and soil. Keep your garden clean and tidy – mow your lawns regularly and remove debris. Keeping pets away from overgrown garden waste will help prevent fleas from adopting your pet as their new home.
