Why control Fleas?
There is little evidence in the U.K that Fleas spread disease. However Flea bites can cause intense irritation around the bite. Certain people react differently to a bite, both in terms of degree of reaction and time taken to react.
How to get rid of Fleas:
For a Flea infestation, we strongly recommend you contact us at Shire Pest Solutions . We are trained professionals and have the technical knowledge and access to professional insecticides which are not available to the public.
Prior to an insecticide treatment, clear as much floor space as possible. To ensure that treatment is as thorough as possible. Vacuuming all areas helps to remove any debris, eggs, larvae and adult fleas. The vibration of the vacuum cleaner also helps to stimulate adults to hatch from their cocoon stage.
Remember to remove the waste from the vacuum cleaner, and dispose of it in an outside bin as you may have collected eggs, larvae and adult fleas while vacuuming.
The standard treatment for infested premises is the application of a residual insecticide such as a liquid spray. The insecticide is applied to all floor surfaces. Ensure you do not vacuum or wash the floors for at least 1 to 2 weeks (or longer if possible), or you'll be in danger of eliminating the residual insecticide which will lead to a failed treatment.
