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.

What You Don't Know About Squirrels

You know those furry little creatures that scurry around trees with their cute fluffy tails? Squirrels are common all around the world, but that doesn't mean the world knows all about the squirrel.

We're going to give you some facts that you may not have known about squirrels: Some squirrels will eat meat. When food sources are low, they'll result to insect, lizards, mice and even snakes. Squirrels plant a lot of trees. Know the saying, "Nothing can come between a squirrel and his nuts?" Well sometimes not even the same squirrel can get to his own nuts. Squirrels are hoarders and like to bury the nuts that they find. When Spring comes, they may return to claim their buried treasure and find a tree sprout instead. Squirrel can't digest cellulose. You don't have to worry about them doing any termite-like damage. Since they can't digest it, they have a diet that consists of protein, carbohydrates and fats. They tend to eat most nuts and seeds but will also eat some fruits and vegetation Squirrels can mate twice a year--in the spring and the fall. This is thanks to their short pregnancies. A mother squirrel will carry her young for around 6 weeks and then raise them for around 10 weeks. Squirrels' behaviors may be different based on where they live. Ground-dwelling squirrels tend to be more social, living in communities. Tree-dwelling squirrels tend to be more solitary. Do you know any interesting squirrel facts? We'd love to hear them!
