When it comes to pest control, Temecula Valley residents often share the same goals: to rid their house and pet of annoying and potentially dangerous fleas. A single flea carrying eggs can quickly turn into a monstrous infestation, and once that happens simply giving your pet a bath will not be nearly enough to alleviate the problem. If it gets that that point, Black Knight is here to protect your home and family from the fleas, but it’s always better to prevent the problem or keep it from coming back. Here are some important tips to help you keep your home and pet free from these tiny pests:
Start with Monthly Flea Treatments
A regular schedule of monthly flea treatments is the first step to preventative flea control. Temecula Valley pet-owners are encouraged to start a monthly flea treatment regimen as soon as possible, so ask your veterinarian which products they recommend for your pet and schedule the first treatment as soon as possible. There is a variety of shampoos and other topical products to choose from. Just make sure to use the highest quality product available and maintain the routine year-round.
Keep Your Temecula Valley Home Clean and Flea-Free
There are some bugs that are going to get into your home no matter what you do or how clean your home is, which we often see when customers inquire about termite control. Temecula Valley homeowners can prevent many other pests from entering their homes, however, by keeping the environment as clean as possible. And this is something the whole family can and should get involved in. Your cleaning routine should include:
- regularly washing pet bedding,
- cleaning all areas where your pet(s) likes to hang out,
- vacuuming all carpets and cushioning on a regular basis,
- emptying the vacuum bag after each use, and
- treating any furniture that has come in contact with fleas to prevent further infestations.
