Customized Flea Control Program for Your Pet
1. Adult: Attaches to and sucks blood from your pet. Lays eggs within 48 hours. Lives for 2-3 months and can live under your carpet and the foundations of the house.
2. Egg: Nearly invisible. Hatches quickly in warmer temperatures (70-89° F), usually within 1-10 days.
3. Larva: Hatches from eggs and resembles maggots. Burrows deep into carpeting, rugs and furniture. Pupates within 7-18 days.
4. Pupae: This is the final stage. It takes from 7-10 days for larva to develop into an adult flea. Highly resistant to insecticides, pupae nestle into cracks, crevices, carpet, and rug fibers. They are barely visible to the naked eye.
Dealing with fleas requires the right approach. Each pet you own needs to be treated, and their living environment cleaned and vacuumed. In addition to removing the current fleas, our products will stop flea eggs and larvae from becoming adults, which is when they are the hardest to kill.
Ticks emerge in the spring and last through early fall. During feeding, they can transmit diseases like Tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Lyme disease. They can eat 600 times their body weight, gorging on your pet for several days before falling off and hiding under your carpets, rugs, mats and furniture.
Destroying fleas and ticks does not have to feel like an uphill battle. Our team can show you how to protect your pet and home by providing you with Siphotrol or Revolution, home-friendly sprays that can be used on any surface.
