How to Get Rid of Fleas?
Some of our methods include:
- Chemical Management – Fleas have become very resistant to pyrethroid insecticides, so proper chemical management is very important.
- Steam Treatment – This is effective but the temperature must reach 150 to 170 degrees. It is labor-intensive, tedious and time-consuming.
- Vacuuming – Vacuuming is effective but it must be done consistently and must be complemented by use of pesticides.
Because of the proximity of humans to the infested areas, we take extra precautions to avoid any toxicity or allergies developing in our customers.
