Therefore, unless the flea infestation is full-blown, Hollywood Florida Pest Control recommends safer and gentler methods for flea control and extermination.
Why Do You Need Fleas & Ticks Control Services?
Ticks and fleas should be taken seriously since they suck blood and some pets especially puppies could become anemic and could even die if heavily infested. Fleas can also transmit tapeworms to the pets. Moreover, pets could contract many diseases from ticks such as Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain among others. These diseases do not only kill pets, but they also cause a lot of pain, which is not a pleasant sight to see.
Even though you can easily see ticks on your pet, it is not easy to see fleas. Pest Control Hollywood Florida recommends fleas comb as the best method to determine if your pet has fleas. You should comb through the pets' fur and gather some hair and dirt that you should squeeze between two wet paper towels. The towels should then be pressed together, and if the dirt leaves some red stains on the towels,it is clear that fleas were present and the dirt is just their feces. If you continue combing you may end up trapping some fleas especially from the tail and tummy. You could get rid of them by drowning them in soapy water since fleas are known to jump out of plain water. Even though it may sound tedious, it is advisable to comb the pet daily since it is beneficial as you use other remedies such as sprays and environmental care.
There are many tropical shampoos and sprays in the market claiming to kill pests, but most of them are made of chemicals and pesticides that are highly toxic. Cats are sensitive to such products because they continuously groom themselves and they eat whatever is in their fur. Also, sprays used on dogs can be transferred to rugs or furniture, and the cat can take them from there. Hence if you choose to use chemicals, ultimate care should be observed.
Hollywood Florida Pest Control uses the safest method for flea and tick control; oil-based non-chemical products, to ensure that fleas and ticks stay away from your pets. Aerosols and shampoos with natural oil do not only keep fleas and ticks away from the pets, but they also nurture and treat skin irritations. Oil blends with plant extracts are also an effective repellent used in dogs. You could combine the repellent aerosol with flea combing since it would also be an excellent method of spreading the natural lubrication through the coat. The region under the dogs’ legs, belly and at the base of the tail should be focused on. These products should not be overdone especially if they have a strong smell since dogs and cats have a stronger sense of smell than human beings, and it could affect them, if overdone.
Derived from Geranium flowers, Geraniol is a highly effective flea repellent. For years, geraniums have been grown around homes and in window boxes to keep away pests such as mosquitoes and fleas. Hence the industry has come up with geraniol which is over 400 percent more effective than citronella in repelling pests. It is a natural pet squeeze; one that is safe and also lasts longer on the dog and cat.
Hollywood Florida Pest Control does not only focus on getting rid of pests but also taking care of your pet with healthy products. For more information on flea and tick control, contact (954) 361-6126.
