How Do I Prepare For Flea Extermination?

If you decide to professionally treat your home and lawn for fleas, there are several preparations and aftercare tips to get the best results. Any reliable pest control company, such as Hill Country Pest Control Fredericksburg, knows that flea treatment is a three-part process: indoor, outdoor, and pet.

  • In the days leading up to the removal, pay attention to the spots your pets spend the most time in - both indoors and outdoors.

  • Remove all pets from the home including small animals like hamsters and cover fish tanks.

  • Arrange an alternative location for your family and pets to be until the home has been treated. Usually, about 4-5 hours.

  • Take pets to the vet to be checked and treated for fleas. Keep freshly treated pets out of infested areas until they are treated. Residual control materials remain active for up to four weeks and many IGRs can last for months. This is long enough to kill any fleas that emerge after treatment. Most importantly, do not allow flea-infested pets to re-enter treated areas for at least four hours after treatment.

Keeping other unwanted pests from your property like mice, rats, and squirrels will keep fleas out of your home and away from your pets. Check all entryways to your home to check that rodents who carry fleas are not able to pass through. Even holes as small as 1/4 inch can let in unwanted pests and spread disease-carrying insects like fleas.
