Fleas & Flea Control in Nairobi

Home Owners: Learn about fleas, and
safe and effective flea control methods
 
Fleas are obnoxious pests...
 
fleas
Fleas are a parasite which feed on the blood of warm blooded animals, including humans.
They pierce the skin, inject an anti-coagulant chemical into the host to prevent blood clotting and suck out the blood some passing straight through their rectum in order to lay their eggs.
A flea bite can cause acute irritation, infection and transfer of other parasites, such as, tapeworms.

Fleas often enter a building on dogs and cats, and are commonly deposited in carpeted areas, in the garden, yard and under the building.
Flea eggs can take several weeks to more than 12 months to hatch - generally during hot humid weather causing an instant infestation of plague proportions.
 
Pest Control for Fleas
 
It is essential for carpets to be thoroughly vacuumed especially in low traffic areas, under furniture, etc, before habitat areas are treated with a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide containing an insect growth regulator which inhibits development during the egg and larvae stage of their life cycle.
To help prevent reinfestation the home owner should regularly vacuum carpets and wash your pet (dogs and cats) with shampoo containing a flea control product.

Restrict access of your dog and/or cat, to internal and sub-floor areas particularly during the summer months.

What will it cost for professional pest control? For flea control in residential premises, the price varies depending on the size home, garden area and ease of access to various areas of the house, using the safer (more expensive) effective flea control products. Due to the likelihood of a reinfestation from insects carried in on your pets, a recurring service program may be advisable and more cost effective in the long run.

CONSUMER NOTE: cheaper prices for flea control abound in the market-place - usually from companies using the cheaper solvent based pesticides in and around the home - which are definitely NOT recommended, especially if residents have asthma or bronchial ailments. Service warranties vary depending upon the risk of reinfestation.

5 Things Your Pest Control Technician Wants You to Understand

 5 Things Your Pest Control Technician Wants You to Understand

There are a lot of misconceptions about what pest control is and what to expect from your technician. No one wants to see bugs or rodents on their property, particularly if they have made their way indoors. However, it is important to stay calm and listen to the expertise of the technician that comes out to service your property. They can help you understand how to prevent future problems and address current issues. To get you started, the following tips will clue you in to five things that pest control technicians wish their customers understood.

 

1. A technician is not an “exterminator.”

What do you think of when you hear the word “exterminator”? Most people envision someone letting loose a toxic cloud of chemicals on their property in an effort to get rid of all pests in the immediate vicinity. However, while the word “exterminator” is commonly used to refer to pest control technicians, it is not an accurate way to describe the work they do for you. Technicians come out, assess the problem, and put together a comprehensive plan to safely ward off bugs and other “critters.”

 

2. Keeping your kitchen clean doesn’t guarantee against pests.

There are a lot of things that make your house attractive to pests, and food is just one of them. For example, bugs also like moisture; they may target your house because they have access to water. It is important to walk around your property, identify areas where moisture is pooling, and figure out how to address the problem. Keeping your home clean is another positive step, but don’t be surprised if doing so doesn’t keep pests out entirely.

3. One time treatments are a band aid, not a permanent fix.

One time pest control treatments often make an immediate, positive difference in your pest activity. However, it is important to note that just because you don’t see any bugs right now doesn’t mean they can’t come back. And, they probably will. If you are serious about getting pests under control at your property, it is best to sign up for a recurring service. Look for someone that offers free call backs in-between visits, so you always know you are covered.

4. Technicians need your help.

When a technician comes out to treat, they may also make recommendations to the homeowner. In order for the problem to be treated effectively, those recommendations must be followed. Even something as simple as closing the garage door can make a big difference. However, it is also important to note that homeowners should not try and take matters into their own hands. “Helping” the technician by applying your own product may have disastrous consequences, like contaminating the professional treatment the technician put down.

5. Some pest activity is good.

No homeowner wants to spot a termite infestation. Similarly, roaches and ants are also an unwelcome nuisance. That said, there are some “pests” that you might want to see around your property. Ladybugs, for example, can help gardeners get rid of pesky aphids. Even most spiders are helpful, as they eat other insects. Still, if you are concerned, call and speak to a technician to see what they recommend.
It is possible to successfully rid your home of bugs and rodents. However, in order to do so, you must find and cooperate with a knowledgeable pest control technician.

Stage 1  prior to the slab being poured, protection of plumbing and service pipes.
