During the treatment, your pest control professional will excuse you and your pets from the home for a period of a few hours. For maximum efficacy, a residual flea control product of choice will be used. The active ingredient(s) have two long-acting components to help to control fleas and break the reproductive life cycle.
These components are:
1. Adulticide – Designed to kill adult fleas and developing fleas (larval stage) on contact.
2. Insect Growth Regulator‐ Only affects developing fleas. Any larval stages of fleas that come into contact with the growth regulator will be unable to develop into an adult, thereby interrupting the reproductive life cycle
What to expect after treatment?
Bradenton Termite and Pest Control flea treatments generally result in an immediate reduction in the number of adult fleas in the home. It is common, however, to see more fleas within seven to fourteen days following the treatment. These fleas were in a pre-adult or “pupal” stage of development at the time of the initial treatment and have not yet come into direct contact with the adulticide used to control them. They should die within a few hours of coming into contact with the residual insecticide.
Daily vacuuming post‐treatment will also help to eliminate individual fleas that emerge following the initial treatment.
