For effective flea control and treatment in Adelaide, call your local Jim’s Pest Control expert on 131 546.
Humans are ideal hosts for fleas, and even our pets are also often affected. Adult fleas need blood and will quite readily feed on us and our pets.
In warmer weather they can multiply at an astonishing rate, and therefore it is important to put in place an effective flea control program to break the cycle.
Fleas bite and cause skin irritation, including and localised swelling. The swelling is raised and red with a single bite mark in the middle of the swelling.
They are also very good at spreading disease, and even death in certain cases.
What flea control treatment can Jim’s provide?
We thoroughly inspect areas for flea infestation, and make sure everything is safe before we start with treatment.
We use a variety of formulations around your property for different areas. There is a special dust we use in your roof void and also your sub floor.
Other areas in your home are also treated, including hard floor surfaces, carpets, rugs, sofas, and under furniture. We treat outside your home too, including patios.
We use the safest pesticides available and recommend an insect growth regulator (IGR) which interrupts the life cycle of the flea. These IGR’s enhance the treatment and are among the safest flea control products available.
When it comes to flea control, what you can do with Jim’s help and advice
Please ensure your pet is being treated for fleas. You can obtain formulations from the supermarket or your local vet which are safe and effective.
You can also give your pet a flea bath, or call Jim’s Dog Wash and they will happily provide this service as well.
Your bedding needs to be washed in hot water. You will need to do the same with your pet’s bedding too.
Thorough vacuuming of all hard floor surfaces, carpets, and rugs is also important. After, ensure the contents of your vacuum cleaner are double bagged before disposal.
With your help and co-operation we can ensure a flea free zone for you and your pets.
