How to control fleas
These pests mostly get their nutrition from their host animals and can live for months without food. If they have moved from their host and hid in carpets or other parts of your home where you might not see them easily, you and your family may be in trouble.
Part of the job of a pest control specialist is to inspect both the interior and exterior of the premises and to determine how bad the infestation is. Then a treatment will be made by spraying to all susceptible areas such as around furniture, carpets, skirting boards, garden beds and grassed areas.
Your pest control specialist may even recommend doing the procedure again since flea eggs can survive for weeks. During the treatment make sure to help the specialist by cleaning the house regularly and checking your pets if they still have fleas.
