There are a number of things you can do to alleviate or maybe get rid of the problem yourself.

The first thing you must do, is vacuum all carpets paying particular attention to edges and joins, furnishings, joins and edges of laminate, and cracks in floorboards. This will assist in getting rid of adult fleas as well as larvae and eggs. The larvae feed on adult flea faeces, and other organic matter which collect in joints and edges as well as carpets and rugs. To rid the property of this source of food is important.

It is vital your vacuum cleaner is emptied away from the house because adult fleas will still be alive and may jump out and back into the property.

Pet bedding should be washed at a minimum of 60°c , or disposed of.

Washing at lower temperature will not eliminate the problem.

Your pets should be treated with a suitable product.

We recommend you consult your vet as many over the counter flea control treatments are now being reported as ineffective.

If the problem persists, it is time to call a professional as in our experience once a flea infestation has taken hold within the property it is very difficult to eradicate with over the counter products.

What can you do yourself ?

If you have any suspicions that your  infestation has been present for more  than a very short period of time,  it may be more cost effective to call us first. We are regularly called to treat properties  where the house holder has spent more on  D.I.Y. products prior to calling us  than our treatment costs.
