Do you need to get rid of fleas in and around your home? Protect your family and pets by calling the flea control experts at AllPro Pest control
Are you or your family noticing small red itchy spots on your skin around your ankles and lower legs? It may be the start of a flea infestation. If you’ve a full-blown flea infestation, you’ll know about it!
Act now to protect yourself, your family and your pets from scratching, skin irritations and potential infection.
Fleas are not only a nuisance for pets, but they can be irritating to humans too. In Australia, fleas are a significant pest. Flea bites can become frequent and occur both inside and outside your home. Any bite allows the possibility of secondary infection, which means you need to seek a specialist flea control treatment to protect you and your family.
Our general pest control treatment doesn’t cover fleas. Flea control requires the use of specialised products and treatment inside and outside the house. We need to treat all the areas your pet hangs out.
At AllPro Pest Control, we apply insecticides (sprays and/or dusts) and insect growth regulators to specific areas inside and outside your home. This includes the sub-floor and your pet’s favourite resting places in the yard. The insecticide kills the adult fleas and larvae present. The insect growth regulator takes care of the eggs, breaking the breeding cycle. This treatment combination will prevent future flea infestations for many months.
Our flea treatments target your pet's favourite areas in the yard
Working with you, the coordination and timing of house cleaning, getting your pet treated and our specialist flea treatment should combine to allow you to enjoy your home free from fleas. Depending on the severity of the outbreak, we may require more than one visit.
We need your help to complete steps 1 and 2 of the process before we arrive.
Treating your pet for fleas
Treat your pet – get advice from a vet and apply an appropriate veterinary product
Cleaning your home and yard
Clean (vacuum) all areas of the house where pets like to hang out and sleep.
Vacuum carpets and upholstered furniture, throwing away used vacuum bags, which will contain fleas, flea eggs and larvae. Repeat this step daily – flea eggs can lay dormant for several weeks.
Vacuum between the cracks in floorboards and wash the floors.
Clear any stored goods in the subfloor so the area can be treated.
If pets sleep on your bed, then wash all your bedding as well.
Our professional flea treatment
Our specialist flea treatment takes about an hour. People and pets need to stay out of the treated areas during application and until the treatment is dry (normally a couple of hours). This includes keeping pets away from treated outdoor areas and the sub-floor (if present).
Wash all pet bedding.
If pets sleep on your bed - wash your bedding!
We guarantee we’ll get rid of your flea problem. Whilst our treatment normally prevents fleas developing in treated areas for at least 6 months, we cannot provide a guarantee. The length of time depends on you. It’s influenced by how often you clean the floors and whether you keep your pet’s flea treatment up to date.
Please note: Insecticides cannot penetrate flea pupae. These developing adults will hatch 1-2 weeks after treatment. When they do, the residual treatment should kill them. However, occasionally they’ll get a bite in before they die. In cases of severe flea infestation we may need to book a supplementary treatment 2 weeks after the main treatment to ensure control.
