Flea Control


Few things are as irritating as a flea bite. South Africa’s warm climate enables flea populations to survive throughout most of the year, which means that getting a handle on flea control is challenging, to say the least. Fleas reproduce at an alarmingly rate – faster than you can kill them. If you share your home with four-legged friends, it’s safe to say that flea control is an ongoing battle.

De-fleaing your pets is only half of the battle won, as fleas make their homes in carpets, bedding and wooden floors. Proper flea control entails a thorough approach that tackles the source of the problem.

Flea control tips from the experts:
  • A vacuum cleaner is your best friend when facing a flea infestation.
  • Regular vacuuming of floors, upholstery and bedding is the first step to eliminating fleas.
  • A regular de-fleaing schedule is crucial for eradicating fleas that enter your home via your four-legged family members.
  • Natural repellents, like citronella, peppermint or mint essential oils are useful alternatives for humans – NB: Animals are allergic to these, so take care when using them on you and your family.
  • If a flea problem still persists, contact a professional pest control provider who’ll assess the situation and advise as to the best plan of action.
