Southwest Florida has the perfect climate for fleas and ticks to thrive
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A FLEA or TICK SERVICE:
- Pick up any toys, clothes, shoes, etc. off the floor.
- Pick up ALL animal bedding and toys. Wash and dry these items, leaving them in the dryer until completion of the treatment.
- Any bedding that is touching the floor should be pulled up and placed on top of the bed.
- Vacuum/mop all floor surface. Discard the water. Throw away the vacuum bag outside the dwelling.
- Remove animals from treatment area for at least 2 hours after treatment.
- We recommend that all occupants vacate the treatment area as well for at least 2 hours after treatment.
- Do NOT vacuum/mop for at least 72 hours after the treatment.
- The animal(s) must also receive a flea treatment PRIOR to re-entering the home. We recommend a flea/tick bath used in conjunction with a flea prevention product as prescribed by your vet.
- A follow-up treatment will be scheduled within 7-10 days of the initial treatment to aid in breaking the life cycle of the fleas/ticks as well as treat any new egg hatchlings.
Following these guidelines will ensure that our technician is able to thoroughly treat the infested areas of the home. Personal items and/or clutter that remains on the floor or up against baseboards provide harbor-age for fleas while we are treating. To effectively control a flea/tick infestation, the chemical must be able to penetrate ALL areas of the dwelling.
IMPORTANT: In order to guarantee our work, both the pet and the environment must be treated. The absence of one of these treatments will not be effective in eliminating a flea or rick infestation.
