Keep Your Home Safe with Tick and Flea Pest Control
Ticks and fleas don’t stand a chance!
Why is tick and flea control important?
Ticks and fleas can transmit a range of harmful diseases and often carry pathogens that cause illnesses like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and other serious health conditions.
These pests can also trigger allergic reactions in humans and pets, leading to skin irritation, hair loss, and potential secondary infections caused by scratching. Moreover, once an infestation takes hold, it can be challenging to eradicate due to the rapid reproduction rates of these pests. Therefore, effective tick and flea control is essential to prevent health risks and maintain a pest-free environment.
Professional Tick and Flea Pest Control Services
These insects reproduce rapidly, making it challenging to eradicate them without professional assistance. Professional pest control services for tick pest control and flea infestations should be considered when the invasion is extensive, difficult to manage independently, or if a significant risk is posed to the health of household members or pets. Our professional pest control services offer access to more potent treatments than DIY solutions, and we have the knowledge and experience needed to apply them safely and effectively.
We utilise a systematic approach to your infestation. Initially, a detailed inspection of your property is conducted to assess the extent of the problem and identify key problem areas. Based on our findings, we create a customised treatment plan developed to involve a combination of solutions. Once finalised, we execute this plan, ensuring all areas are treated effectively. Post-treatment, we typically provide advice on how to prevent future infestations and may schedule follow-up visits to ensure that the pests have been completely eradicated.
While an immediate reduction in adult fleas and ticks is often seen after treatment, it may take a few weeks to fully eliminate these pests due to their life cycles. During this period, it’s normal to see some fleas or ticks as eggs continue to hatch, but these should decrease over time.
Identifying An Infestation
Careful observation of your pets and your home environment is required to identify the infestations of these insects. Pets, particularly dogs and cats, are often the first to show the signs through excessive scratching, biting, or licking of certain areas, restlessness, red or irritated skin, and visible tiny dark specks in their fur. The presence of flea dirt, which looks like tiny black or reddish-brown specks on your pet’s coat or bedding, is another tell-tale sign.
