Guaranteed Flea Control For Jacksonville & First Coast Residents

The climate in Florida means flea season is every season. Fleas are a potential problem both inside and outside of Jacksonville area homes, whether you have pets or not! Rodents, the growing number of stray cats across Florida, neighborhood dogs, and wildlife all can be a source of fleas in your yard. Once in your lawn, you or your pets can then bring them indoors. Lindsey Pest Services offers flea control solutions guaranteed for 90 days so you can rid the fleas from your house and reduce the population of fleas in the yard.

 

How We Get Rid Of Fleas

If you’re dealing with fleas in your home, it’s time to take action. Fleas can live for an average of 100 days even without a source of blood meal (you or your pets!) If the fleas in your home do have access to meals, the female fleas can lay eggs within 36 to 48 hours of sucking your blood. Before you know it, your house could be overrun by fleas!  Keep scrolling to learn more about our interior and exterior flea treatments. 

Interior Flea Treatments

To treat the interior of your home, we’ll need you to do some preparation work for us to make sure the treatment is effective. We’ll give you the instructions prior to your treatment appointment, but it will include things like vacuuming furniture and rugs, washing floors, and planning a relocation for your family and pets on the day of treatment. You will also need to show proof that any pets have been treated in order to activate your 90-day guarantee.

Exterior Flea Treatments

If you have a yard full of fleas, your pets will end up bringing them into the home. You can even end up bringing fleas in without even realizing it! If rodents get into your home, they are also common carriers of fleas that can then take up residence inside. As stray cats, possums, rats, and squirrels travel around the great outdoors, they drop fleas. To reduce the flea population on your property, we can provide exterior flea treatments on your lawn to greatly reduce the number of fleas that may be brought inside.

Multiple Flea Treatments Are Necessary

Fleas can be very difficult to remove from a home, which is why we recommend getting professional pest control services if you have fleas. When fleas lay eggs on your pets or even on humans, they hatch into larvae within about a week. From there, the little larva crawls into a dry area to spin the pupa case (like a caterpillar cocoon), where it will eventually emerge as an adult flea once it detects a warm-blooded host is in the area. Females only need one blood meal to begin the flea cycle again. During the cocoon stage, no chemicals or flea treatments will affect the flea. This means you may have flea treatments that eliminate all of your adult fleas and larvae, but any cocoons in your home would be protected and will still hatch. As a result, it’s necessary to do multiple flea treatments to rid your home of all fleas, but after your second treatment and proof of pet care, we’ll cover you with our 90-day guarantee.

Guaranteed For 90 Days

In order to activate your 90-day guarantee, you will need to show proof that any pets have been and will continue to be on regular flea treatment. Additionally, due to the flea life cycle, a minimum of two treatments will be needed for all situations.

In the case of a complete flea infestation, more than two paid treatments may be necessary to eradicate the fleas and guarantee a flea-free home for three months. Don’t worry; we’d discuss this with you at the initial service so there are no surprises!
