FLEAS

Thank you for choosing Launceston Carpet Cleaning and Pest Management. We recommend regular servicing as the most effective means of pest management although you can help keep infestation to a minimum by following a few simple precautions.

Fleas obtain food largely from animals including dogs, cats, pigs and some birds. fleas enjoy humid, warm dry areas. floor areas should be thoroughly swept, vacuumed, washed or steam cleaned, with attention given to undisturbed areas such as carpet edges and under furniture. pets should be washed and inspected regularly and their bedding kept clean. restricting pet access to dry underfloor areas will help reduce the spread of fleas. consult your local veterinarian for the treatment of fleas on your pets. rats encourage fleas and should be removed from the property.

chemical treatments are limited in effect if these precautions are not followed.
