Professional Flea Treatment & Control

 Professional Flea Treatment


Fleas can be a real pain. It is a common misconception that you can only get fleas in your home if you have a dog or cat as a pet. This is not actually true. Whilst those with pets are more susceptible to getting flea infestations, fleas are not exclusive to homes with furry friends. Dogs and cats are regularly treated for fleas with medication provided by vets, and these are very effective. However, it does not completely eradicate the issue of fleas. Fleas will also live on foxes and rodents.

This is due to the way fleas can move from host to host. They are able to jump considerable distances with the use of their long back legs. They do not fly as they do not have wings so they get about by jumping. This means that if a host has fleas, and you are within 20cm of that host, a flea can get to you. 

Adult fleas like nothing more than a blood meal. These parasites will feed on your blood until they are ready to burst. Fleas are attracted to the production of carbon dioxide, so where there is CO2, fleas will gravitate towards it. Although their initial bites will not hurt, the bite site afterwards can become itchy and inflamed. They are very small so can be hard to spot and their eggs are even smaller!

Fleas can be really tricky to get rid of which is why it is necessary to call in the professionals. Fleas will likely not be contained in one room of your home as you and/or your pets frequent lots of different rooms within the house which means that treating just one room will not get rid of them completely. Here at Devon Pest Control, we will come in and survey the level of infestation and then tailor our treatments accordingly. What we use to treat these kinds of issues is professional grade so it is extremely effective. We will be sure to leave you flea free! Get in touch today.

Professional Pest Controllers - SOS Pest Control

 Professional Pest Controllers - SOS Pest Control


We know it is always nice to save money where possible. Everyone likes to look after the pennies and many people opt to do jobs around the home themselves. Do it yourself pest control is no different. There are many products you can purchase at your local super market or DIY store that profess to sort out your pest problem. Whilst these products are useful for a one off, small pest problem, they are not suitable for dealing with infestations. This is because the ingredients are not as strong as what certified pest controllers can use to deal with your pest problem.

Employing a qualified and insured pest controller means you are paying for their knowledge, expertise and access to the best pest control products to eradicate your pest problem quickly and efficiently. They deal with all sorts of pests each day, they know how these pests gain access to your property, and what issues they can cause now and if left without being dealt with. Not only this, proofing your property is just as important. From a site survey, our pest controllers will be able to show you any potential access points for birds, rodents and insects. By getting your property professionally pest proofed, you will be able to enjoy your home or business without the worry of dealing with any pest issues.
