Opt for Your Superb Flea Control in Melbourne Today and Defend Your Home
Fleas are tiny bugs, that can easily get inside of your home through your pets without you even noticing. They can hide between your pet’s fur and reproduce and infest your whole house. It’s also common for fleas to feed on you, with their bites leaving itchy red lumps. All in all, a flea infestation is a lot more than a minor inconvenience. And because of that, the best way is hiring flea control services.
Flea treatment is a complex task and as such, it cannot be performed using over the counter insecticides. That simply wouldn’t work. What will work, however, is hiring professional flea control experts to get rid of your nightmares.
Signs of a flea infestation
A flea infestation shouldn’t be taken lightly. Fleas can find their way into your home even from your garden, shoes or clothes. Humans, as well as pets, can be infected with various diseases from flea bites.
- If your pet starts to scratch its body frequently and more aggressively, check the fur thoroughly for redness or loss of hair on spots.
- Check for flea droppings on your pet’s fur and on carpets, rugs and sitting areas. The droppings are red or black in colour.
- Examine your property including the garden for larvae and eggs.
- Noticing even one of the tiny bugs on your pets is the main sign of an infestation. You should act fast and get rid of the infestation immediately.
If you have pets, at the end of your lease you are required to conduct a flea treatment on any carpeted area in your house and provide your landlord with the invoice about the conducted service.
The flea pest control process
InspectionPlease make sure that the technician will have access to your property on the day of your service. When he arrives, he will carefully examine the affected areas in order to determine the level of the infestation. After the assessment, the specialist will make preparations to start the treatment.
What you can do before the service - vacuum and clean totally everything in your home because after treatment it's not recommended to vacuum and mop for a period of 3 weeks.
TreatmentUsually, just a single visitation is necessary for the flea control Melbourne service. Your technician will apply a special insecticide on the affected areas that will eliminate the pesky fleas and their eggs. It also has a prolonged residual effect that will protect your property for about three months. No one can stay in the house for three hours after our treatment, including pets.
Guaranteed ServiceWe provide 3 months service warranty. So, stay vigilant and make sure to contact us in case you notice any flea activity in the weeks after that first treatment.
If you have a pet - you have to treat the pet n the same day as the service is, or the day before. It's necessary to show a certificate to the exterminators. Otherwise, we don't give a warranty.
PreventionWhen the pest controller is done with the treatment, he will be happy to talk to you regarding how you can protect your property from the tiny biting buggers and future infestations. If other pests bother you, we can take care of them, too. Fantastic Pest Control can also deal with your cockroaches, exterminate your ants, rid you of the pesky rats, and more.
Right now, you are probably wondering
Is there something I should do prior to the service?
It is important for the pest technician to have unobstructed access to the affected areas so he can treat them properly. You can also vacuum-clean the room(s) meticulously in order to remove some of the adult fleas that are hiding around.
What should I do after the service?
We strongly urge you not to mop or vacuum-clean the affected areas for at least 4 days after the treatment. This will allow for the applied insecticide to settle and do its magic.
Are fleas dangerous?
A flea bite is particularly painful and unpleasant, leaving an itchy rash that takes few days to fully heal. On the other hand, fleas can actually transmit tapeworms to cats and dogs.
What are the first signs of flea infestation?
Oh, you just can't miss them! Somebody is getting bitten one way or the other. Fleas are tiny bloodsuckers and they won't hesitate to jump on a person or a warm-blooded pet.
