Flea and Tick Treatment in Hollywood
With so many Americans working from home, as well as students starting at-home learning, expect to see a flea outbreak due to the effect of stay-at-home lifestyles. Since people and pets are home all day, likely spending more time outdoors, there are countless opportunities for them to pick up fleas and bring them into the house.
Before Treatment: The Customer’s Role
Aside from knowing they don’t want them in their homes, homeowners tend to not know much about fleas.
- We recommend homeowners take all their pets to the veterinarian or groomer during the time technicians are treating the home.
- Vacuum several times a day for several days to remove eggs, larvae, and feces. Areas to focus on: vacuum all rugs, drapes, upholstered furniture, mattresses, and cushions. It’s important to seal and discard the vacuum bag outside after cleaning.
- Wash or dispose of all pet bedding and clear their bowls and toys, as well as any other items on the floor.
- Clear and clean all floors, and mop all tile and vinyl floors.
A Flea-Free Protocol Program: Time to Treat
Insect growth regulators (IGRs) are our go-to product when treating for fleas. In addition to incorporating IGRs into service protocols, a big part of treating fleas successfully is identifying the source of the infestation. We will need to:
- Determine where fleas are coming from. We generally find that fleas are carried into yards and homes by wildlife. We will also need to know where the homeowners’ pets sleep, rest, and eat.
- Check the attic and or crawlspace in addition to the usual flea hiding places.
- Apply treatment using IGRs to help prevent pre-adult fleas from maturing into breeding, biting adults.
Post-Flea Treatment: Now What
Since pupae may continue to develop and emerge from their cocoons for several days or weeks, customers should continue to vacuum for 2-3 weeks at intervals of 3-4 days. The vacuum’s mechanical pressure will improve the effectiveness of the insecticide.
