Fleas and Flea Control
Regular clean up, and giving our pets a shower with anti-flea shampoos, medication and other flea treatments could
prevent infestation by fleas.
Flea control is imperative if we do have pets at home, and always keeping a very close watch on our pets is important.
Any scratching by our pet would indicate an infestation, and immediate flea treatments have to be taken.
Ignoring it could have disastrous consequences, as flea infestation can take place within a few weeks.
Regular flea control has to be carried out on our pets to keep them free from fleas, healthy and active, and for our good
When you do find fleas on your pet or some around your home even though you do not have a pet at home, it is best not
to panic. Vacuuming your floor, carpets, furniture and other likely places for them to be regularly will reduce your flea
Once you have vacuumed you must ensure that the bag is thoroughly cleaned up or disposed off, as the case may be.
Regular vacuuming is known to be a very effective method of flea control. About 70-80 % of all stages of fleas are readily
Adults being only about 5 %, it is necessary that the early stages are also controlled so that re-infestation does not occur.
Floors of wood and tiles that have minute cracks and crevices are ideal hiding places for fleas. Vacuuming will suck them
out, and then taking corrective measures like mopping with disinfectants would help.
Flea Control Treatments in Winston Salem by Go-Forth Pest Control
There are natural ingredients like citronella oil that is used effectively in flea control. Giving your pet regular baths with
a citronella based shampoo, would reduce the incidence of fleas, on it’s body and around the house.
Regular brushing of your pet with a flea comb would also reduce the quantum of fleas on it’s body. If you have a garden
where your pet is very likely to play could also harbor eggs, larvae, pupae and adults.
Any treatment that would be carried out on your pet will have to be extended to the garden as well.
Experienced and trained flea exterminators have the ability to identify the various species and employ the most
effective methods and insecticides to counter them.
Like all other pests fleas too cannot be eliminated or exterminated, they can only be controlled and that too, on a very
consistent and sustained exercise.
The strict regimen that we put into place is good for our pets as they would grow with no visits to the veterinarian, and
grow into healthy animals.
Their coats if dogs and cats would give a more gleaning look rather than a dull disarranged look after regular scratching.
Regular scratching would also drop their fur, and would look sickly and frail. Their appetites would drop and will be
prone to various other sicknesses.
