Until your home is infested with fleas, you don't know how bad life can be. Infestations can reach the point where white socks look black just by entering a room.
This insect has a complete metamorphous, i.e., adults lay eggs which hatch into a larvae, which builds a cocoon around itself (pupae). The adult flea emerges from the pupae to start the cycle over again.
An adult flea lays about 300 to 500 eggs. Given this, when you think fleas are bad, you haven't seen anything yet. At any given time, only about 5% of the total population is in the adult stage.
Fleas need a host to reproduce...your pets will do just fine. Give them a little blood and they will be on their way.
We recommend that our customers who are pet owners, should consult with their vet about a product called "The Program". This is a hormone that after being ingested by the pet goes directly to the pet's blood stream. When a flea bites the pet for the shot of blood, it is basically sterilized by the hormone. Cool chemistry! The hormone has no impact on the pet's virility nor will it affect your ability to manage the size of your own family.
There is no such thing as a partial, successful flea treatment. Success or failure is directly correlated to the thoroughness of the job.
All floor surfaces throughout the house should be treated with an adulticide and an IGR (hormone). The yard surface adjacent to the home and where the pet or people traverse should be sprayed with an effective adulticide. Nematodes can be used for a non-toxic exterior treatment.
The following list of details must be attended to with care:
Vacuum all rugs, carpets & furniture, especially between and under the cushions. Dispose of the vacuum bag in an outdoor receptacle. Place an activated flea collar inside the new bag you install.
Clean & clear all floors, even the closet floors must be cleared of all objects to provide chemical application to floor surfaces. Be sure to get under the beds. Mop all tile and vinyl floors. Sweep concrete areas.
Remove pets. They can not remain at home. Treat the pet with a good low-toxic pet spray and an IGR before returning. Aquariums may remain, if covered. Their pumps should be turned off for four hours if possible without harming the fish.
Clean pet bedding - wash or dispose of all pet bedding.
Now begin spraying all floor surfaces with approved adulticide and IGR. Begin in one end of the home and work your way towards a door. Ventilate!
Do not step on treated surface until dry! You may not get harmed, but your foot print will remove the chemical, jeopardizing the treatment's effectiveness. You may return with pets after 3 to 4 hours.
After the lawn is mowed and watered, spray it with an approved adulticide. Treat shady areas and spaces under wood decks thoroughly.
Every 3 to 4 days, for a period of three weeks, thoroughly vacuum the carpet areas of the home.
If fleas are present after 21 days, repeat the process.
