Fleas & Ticks

Southwest Florida has the perfect climate for fleas & ticks to thrive

The first line of defense against these dangerous pests is prevention.

Our pest control professionals will perform a perimeter service to eliminate the presence of fleas and ticks.

Keep your family, and furry best friends, safe from fleas. Not only do fleas cause unpleasant and uncomfortable bites and bumps, they are also known carriers of insect-borne illnesses. Because these pests are difficult to see with the human eye, they often enter your home undetected and quickly spread. Flea control requires two steps, treating your pets and treating the premises. What can you do to get rid of fleas? Personalized Pest Control will create a custom treatment plan to ensure that fleas in your home or business are eliminated.

How to Prepare for 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 surfaces. Discard the water. Throw away the vacuum bag outside the dwelling.
  • Remove animals from treatment area for at least 2 hours after treatment.
  • All occupants should 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 of the initial treatment to aid in breaking the life cycle of the fleas/ticks as well as treat any new egg hatchings.
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 harborage 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 tick infestation.
