Knowing you have a flea infestation is an uncomfortable thought, with many customers attempting to get rid of fleas with shop-bought products, too embarrassed to admit they have a ‘flea problem’. But we have dealt with many flea infestations and know only too well, that it can happen to anyone.
Adult fleas lay all of their eggs (up to 50 per day) on the pet. However, the eggs soon fall off the animal into carpeting, beneath the cushions of furniture, and wherever else the pet rests, sleeps or spends most of its time. This is where you the homeowners should focus control measures.
Treatment of Pet:
It is important that the pet be treated in conjunction with the premises, preferably on the same day. Adult fleas spend virtually their entire life on the animal -- not in the carpet. Untreated pets will continue to be bothered by fleas. They may also transport fleas in from outdoors, eventually overcoming the effectiveness of the insecticide applied inside the home.
