Often, thoroughly vacuum carpets and soft furnishings along with treating pets with Flea products can prevent or help to clear an infestation. It's important to pay attention to corners, edges and under furniture where eggs and fleas will hide. Many pet shops sell insecticides to treat mild infestations, however for more severe infestations you should contact the Pest Control team.
For the treatment of fleas you will need to provide an insect sample and carry out all the required preparation work. We spray a residual insecticide to all floor surfaces, for which you will need to stay away from your home for a minimum of 2-3 hours. Do not vacuum or mop for 2 weeks after treatment as this will remove the insecticide.
Contact the Pest Control team for advice about commercial infestations.
