Dealing with Fleas During Summer
Flea problems are common during the summer months as this is when fleas are at their most active, the flea larvae can lay dormant in carpets for 12 months, and will only merge into adult fleas when there is a blood meal for them and if weather conditions are suitable, the way they detect there is a blood meal is by vibrations, this can be made from just walking over the carpet in a room or by vacuuming, with outdoor fleas walking over the ground or even mowing the lawn will cause sufficient vibrations for the fleas to become active.
The temperature also has to be right for fleas to become active, and this is why our summers cause so many problems for home owners.
A professional pest control sunshine coast company should have a sound understanding of the habits and life cycle of fleas to rid them from a home; the pest controller should also have good communication skills to be able to explain the process to the customer.
Flea Problems at Home and the Office
When there is a flea problem in a home or office there is usually the presences of an animal maybe a cat or dog and they will probably be carriers of the fleas also. When there is a flea infestation in a home and there are also animals such as cats and dogs at the property, they should also be treated at the same time as the flea treatment, they are not to be sprayed by the pest controller, but the owner should have a flea preventative treatment for the animals that is applied to the back of the head or neck area.
Without the cooperation of the owner the problem will continue, this is where a professional pest control Gold Coast Company should explain the correct way in which to deal with the fleas and also the pets.
A good and thorough pre vacuum is best before a flea treatment is carried out, this is usually undertaken by the owner or tenant before the pest controller arrives, this will allow the flea larvae to merge into adults and will also make the treatment more successful.
In a bad infestation the use of a (IGR) insect growth regular will need to be used, they are designed to give long term control of the flea eggs.
