Flea Control North County San Diego

WHY DO I HAVE FLEAS?

Fleas are small, reddish-brown parasites with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts. Fleas drop many eggs in the places they infest. Eggs are typically deposited in animal fur, carpets or fabrics. These eggs can lay dormant for a year before hatching, typically brought on by warm weather, physical activity, or the presence of carbon dioxide.

Flea infestations are possible even for homeowners without pets. These pests can be introduced to a yard in a variety of ways if other pests like rats, rabbits or gophers are present. People can also bring them home by walking through an infested parks, trails or yards. It is important to treat a home inside and out when dealing with fleas, as well as have all animals in the home treated at the same time to avoid recontamination.

Fleas have a 4 stage life cycle: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Typical flea populations consist of 50% eggs, 35% larvae, 10% pupa and 5% adults. No chemical treatments are able to kill fleas in the egg or pupa stages. However, after hatching, fleas can be effectively treated with growth regulators and pesticides.

THE MAJOR LEAGUE FLEA CONTROL DIFFERENCE

When you choose Major League to service your home our trained and state licensed technician will inspect and create a pest management program that integrates treatment or makes recommendations based on the needs of your property. Our policy of low impact solutions provides you with the most effective methods for total control. Some homeowners attempt to control flea issues themselves. However, the misapplication of chemicals can re-route flea activity by causing pushing populations to new locations and potentially contaminating your environment. Our professionals are trained to identify pest threats and treat the areas of your home most susceptible to pest activity. Major League Pest has the technology and training needed to not only treat adult fleas, but help eliminate all stages of fleas. Our dedication to safety ensures a custom-tailored solution best suited to your family, pets and surroundings.

WE TAKE THE HASSLE OUT OF PEST CONTROL

Over-the-counter flea control products do not last long and therefore must be applied frequently, forcing you to spend more money on more products. The products a licensed professional company can utilize are much more effective than the products available to consumers. When homeowners do the math, they quickly realize that after purchasing the products and the time they spend applying them, they could have had a professional take care of the problem for the same or less amount of money.

INITIAL FLEA CONTROL SERVICE

Always prepare the interior of your home before a flea service by vacuuming all carpeted surfaces. Vacuuming will trigger the flea eggs to hatch because fleas are attracted to the heat and movement of the vacuum. If you wish to have your carpets cleaned, please do so before your first treatment as deep cleaning can remove treatment material and greatly reduce residual effectiveness. It is also a good idea to have your pets treated for fleas and wash all pet bedding. Once your pets are treated, they will not reintroduce fleas to the home.

The first pest service at your home is called the initial service.  Once completed, you will notice an immediate impact on the pest infestation levels around your home. Fleas will be flushed out and levels will be reduced. Flea eggs and pupa will continue to hatch after treatment and you may still see fleas between the initial service and the first regular service until control is achieved. We recommend vacuuming your floors every day after treatment for 2 weeks to eliminate as many flea eggs and pupa as possible. Heavy infestations of fleas will require an additional treatment 2-3 weeks after the initial treatment. Your first regular service will begin approximately one month after the initial service.

REGULAR FLEA CONTROL SERVICE

Your first regular service will break the life cycle of the insects around your home and help to prevent future infestations. Beginning a regular service program 30 days after the initial service is the key to permanently controlling pests around the home. Once you have had your first regular service, pest presence will be reduced to a minimum level. Through ongoing regular scheduled services, your home will continue to be pest free.

It’s always good to have peace of mind knowing your service is fully backed with a promise of quality. That’s why if you experience pest problems after a regular service treatment, Major League Pest will return and retreat your home for free.

“The technician was friendly, attentive and professional. The work was completed as promised and I was informed about how our every three month service would work. I especially like that Major League will come out between service dates in case there is a new problem. This was my first experience with a pest control company and I am glad it was with Major League. They were recommended by a family member and I understand why. This may be a life-long relationship.”

“They recently "prepped" my house including repairs and replacement of fascia boards, outside rafters, etc., prior to tenting the house in order to eliminate termites. Their "prep" work was done, including new matching paint, (in less than five hours) on at least five different locations on the exterior of the house. Not only were they very professional and competent; just as importantly, they were very courteous, and responsive to all questions that I asked.”
