Fleas & Flea Control in Nairobi

Home Owners: Learn about fleas, and
safe and effective flea control methods
Fleas are obnoxious pests...
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.

How to Pest-Proof Your Attic & Basement

Many people are anxious about encountering unwanted pests, especially in their own homes. As such, homeowners often take preventative measures as part of their seasonal maintenance routine. However, there are several rooms in a house that can be easily overlooked in the process of pest proofing - the attic and basement.
Rodents such as mice and rats tend to be the most common invaders of attics and basements, but a slew of insects can also make themselves at home if given the chance. Cockroaches, spiders, ants and stink bugsare a few of the usual suspects. These tenacious pests usually seek shelter, food and water in homes due to changes in weather, such as extended periods of rain or the onset of cooler temperatures.
Pests can find entry points into homes through almost any opening, including cracks and crevices as small as a dime in the structure's exterior. Once mice and rats find their way into attics or basements, they can cause serious and costly property damage. Rodents are capable of destroying insulation in attics and chewing through walls, baseboards and electrical wires, causing up to 25 percent of house fires in the Kenya per year.
Luckily, there are many effective pest-proofingmeasures homeowners can use to discourage unwanted guests from taking shelter in the forgotten rooms of a home. It is important to pay special attention to the home's insulation by replacing loose mortar and weather stripping around the basement foundation. In addition, items that are kept in basements and attics should be stored in plastic, sealed containers off of the floor rather than cardboard boxes to prevent pests from nesting inside. Attics and basements should also be kept well ventilated and dry. In order to remove any known moisture or harborage sources, homeowners can run a dehumidifier and install gutters or diverts.
Pest proofing the forgotten rooms of a house should be viewed as a year-round commitment to protecting one's property and health from the threats associated with pest damage and disease. A licensed pest professional can recommend a prevention plan to help keep your home pest-free. To find a local, qualified pest professional in your area.
