Treatment of all Pets
Regular professional grooming of pets can help prevent flea and tick infestations. Owners should also ensure that their pets are receiving regular flea and tick treatments. Talk to your veterinarian for the most appropriate flea and tick treatments for your pets.
Your Pest Control Technician knows the most up to date and effective methods to get your flea and tick infestation under control. They will focus on areas where your pets eat and sleep, as these will be where the highest concentration of fleas and ticks will occur.
Due to the nature of the treatment, all people and pets will be required to stay out of the treated home for at least two hours, or until treated areas have dried completely.
Upon inspection, your Pest Control Technician will determine the method of treatment that is most appropriate to meet your specific needs. Control of fleas and ticks outdoors is harder to achieve due to numerous factors, including water, sunlight, wind, stray animals, etc. Keeping your grass cut and yard debris removed can help keep the flea and tick population under control.
