Our Flea Exterminator Service
Cats and dogs hate fleas, and so do we! For good reason! Causing skin irritation, allergies, and diseases like typhus and tularemia, fleas can be a real problem. So we recommend putting your pets on a flea and tick prevention medication from your vet, then calling the experts at Zeroach Pest & Termite to treat your property. This combination will ensure your family and four-legged friends are protected from fleas, particularly during the spring and summer months.
Our Unique Approach To Flea Extermination
Fleas have gotten much tougher to control in recent years. Often they require that special preventative efforts be made before they show up. The best time to begin a flea control program is in Spring before you get adult fleas. But if you’ve already got a full-blown infestation, fleas must be controlled at every stage of their life cycle. The team at Zeroach Pest & Termite knows how to kill adult fleas and prevent future generations from breeding, giving you the long-term protection you deserve.
1. FLEA INSPECTION
We’ll first determine the severity of the infestation by inspecting the entire property. If you’re dealing with a flea problem, we’ll move forward with our flea treatment. Two or three services are often required to eliminate this pest.
2. INTERIOR TREATMENT
We’ll carefully apply the proper residual materials and insect growth regulators (IGR) on all floor surfaces, paying special attention to the areas your pets spend time. This could even be the grout on bathroom tile! Not only does this approach kill fleas on contact, but it also interrupts their breeding cycle. Best of all, this method lasts for 4-6 months!
3. EXTERIOR TREATMENT
For short-term, but faster results, we’ll carefully spray a combination of liquid residual and insect growth regulator (IGR) to the areas your pet(s) frequent or wherever there is flea activity. For long-term, but slower results, we’ll use a granulated insecticide to kill all adult fleas in your yard. This is a great preventative against fleas and ticks to add to your regular pest control service.
Why Choose Zeroach Pest & Termite
Frequently Asked Questions
Infestations typically start with your cat or dog. These pests have an affinity for certain animals in particular and will attach themselves to your pets when they’re outside, and then infest their fur and areas they (and you) sleep indoors. This means to control fleas successfully, you need to treat the inside of your home and your yard! Luckily, Zeroach Pest & Termite can help. If you’re dealing with a flea infestation, or want to safeguard your home from these jumping pests, call 806-543-0001 today!
Flea bites often leave you with red, itchy bumps. Thats the reason why your pets scratch so much after they’ve been bitten. The more these bumps are scratched, the worse they feel. But the real problem is fleas carry insect-borne diseases just like mosquitoes and ticks. According to the CDC, the number of illnesses caused by flea bites tripled from 2004 to 2016. So if you’re dealing with a flea infestation, don’t wait!
Complete flea control starts with your pet(s). Many options are available to treat your cat or dog, and these should be discussed with your veterinarian. Please, don’t just pick something up from the store because using ineffective treatments can add to the problem of pesticide resistance in flea populations and make them harder to treat in the end. Next, call us at 806-543-0001 to schedule your flea treatment. We’ll inspect your home, then use an insecticide and insect growth regulator to kill adult fleas and prevent future generations from breeding.
Fleas never stop looking for warm-blooded animals, like your pets. They can consume 15 times their body weight in blood, which can cause anemia and significant blood loss in extreme cases. So we recommend that you supplement your flea and tick preventative with 2-3 flea treatments during the warmer months in Lubbock, TX. This will improve your first line of defense against these pests so that you hardly even need to think about it.
Once we’ve treated your yard for fleas, just ensure the product is completely dry before going outside. Depending on a variety of factors, like outdoor temperatures and humidity, we recommend you wait at least AN HOUR to re-enter the serviced area. After this time has passed, it is safe for you and your family to enjoy your deck, pool, and yard again!
