What Must You Do Before Your Home Is Treated For Fleas?

That's a good question. Some flea problems are very minor. You might only have to vacuum the rug, carpets and floors a couple of times, and that's the end of your flea problem. However, if vacuuming doesn't do the job for you, then you will need to contact A. Bailey Termite and Pest Control Inc.

What To Do Before We Come To Your Home?

1. Vacuum - all rugs, carpets, and furniture, especially between and under cushions. Dispose of vacuum bag upon completion.
2. Floors - including closet floors, must be cleared of all objects to give us access to all floor surfaces. Mop all tile and vinyl floors. Sweep all concrete floors.
3. Pets - take pets for a professional flea bath while your home is being treated. Pets cannot remain in the home during treatment. (Fish bowls and aquariums may remain if properly covered. We will give you further instruction on how to protect your fish)
4. Pet Bedding - clean or dispose of all pet bedding. If cleaning, was pet bedding separately from other clothing/linens.
5. Plants - plants don't have to be removed and can remain in your home.

Will All Fleas Die Immediately After Treatment?

Although nearly all fleas present will be killed by the time you return to your home, don't be alarmed if you see some fleas for a couple of weeks after treatment. These fleas are usually newly hatched from their protective pupal case and will be controlled by the residual effect of the product we have professionally applied.
