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.

Mazda Recalls Vehicles Again Due to Spiders in Gas Lines

spider car
Everybody knows that spiders can be a nuisance if they get inside your home, but did you realize they could cause a recall by a major automotive manufacturer? It seems that one of the most common spiders in the United States, the yellow sac spider, is attracted to hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbons entice the spider to enter the vent hose of some Mazda6 models and weave a web. These webs clog the canister vent lines causing loss of pressurization and ventilation problems. This could stress a car’s fuel tank to the breaking point, which could make it leak fuel and possibly catch fire.
This development prompted a recall of approximately 65,000 vehicles in the U.S., Mexico and Canada in 2011. The yellow sacs are back, which has forced Mazda to recall its vehicles once more. Spider pest control is difficult. They’re very tenacious whether in a house or hidden in the hose of a car. The only option Mazda had was to check the canister vent lines and replace the parts that were affected. Another 42,000 vehicles are expected to be recalled this time.
In this case, spider extermination is the wrong approach. In newer models, Mazda has installed a spring to prevent the spiders from getting in the vent lines. If they manage to enter, however, Mazda also upgraded the software to reduce the pressure on the fuel tank to prevent splitting.
Alpha Ecological handles spider extermination regularly. We’re more environmentally friendly than most extermination companies that apply industrial-strength pesticides that can have health consequences for pets and children. We use the mildest pesticide possible – if we use any pesticide at all – for spider pest control. We prefer a method of prevention, client education and frequent examination to solve household problems. We’d rather eradicate the problem before the spiders can cause any damage to your home or harm to your family.
Give Alpha Ecological a call. We’ll send one of our technicians over to assess your problem right away.
