Bristol Flea Control - Rapid Elimination of Cat and Dog Fleas


March is the time of year when fleas are woken by warm temperatures and scheduled building works etc, bring people back into property's after many weeks or months. People spending the winter in warmer parts of the world are also returning to homes not lived in for months. 

What greets them when they arrive is what at first looks like pepper on their legs, but as the pepper behind to crawl they realise it's fleas, and hundreds of them.

What can we do about fleas?

1. If a pet cat or dog is present, get it treated by the vet. Over the counter remedy's are no good at this advanced stage.

2. Perpetration for treatment. Get a decent vacuum with a rotary brush and intensively vacuum everywhere, paying particular attention to the perimeter of any rooms, and under ALL items of furniture. 

You also need to ensure that the edges of the room are easily accessible to be treated. 

3. Spraying. Sprays are not equal! The products we use professionally can be up to 100x more potent than those bought on line or from shops. The critical component that many sprays lack is an IGR or insect growth regulator. This stops the fleas life cycle in its tracks, so larvae cannot mature into biting fleas. The other important quality of our sprays is that they are residual. This means they go on working for months after we have applied them.

4. Fumigation. This only works at time of treatment and unlike the spray, is not residual. Fumigants get into the places the spray won't and is targeted at the adult fleas.

5. Once treated you will have achieved 99% control, with the final 1% getting mopped up and killed by your pet. Cat fleas and Dog fleas may continue to hatch out of pupae for up to a year. So complete control of that final 1% can take time.
