Flea Control

Fleas are more than annoying, they are a health hazard to humans, canines and felines too! Flea bites can cause itching, swelling and allergic reactions. Fleas can also transmit tapeworms to your pet if they are ingested. An infestation needs to be controlled as soon as possible because fleas multiply rapidly. While there are different types of fleas the most common is the Cat Flea (Don’t be fooled by the name it feeds on dogs and Humans too).

Flea control requires a partnership between Ransford and the home or business owner. It is also important to involve your Veterinarian and or Groomer. Teamwork and timed treatment is essential for a successful result. Ransford will supply you with a Flea Prep instruction sheet. Once the prep is done Ransford will treat your home, and your Vet or dog groomer will treat your pet at the same time. You will then follow the after treatment instructions Ransford will supply. Pet bedding will need to be laundered, and your home vacuumed frequently.

While it may be appealing to just buy a “FLEA BOMB” most people need to hire a pest control company to get long term control of Fleas. Please remember that the materials in the Flea Bomb can be Flammable and using too many at the same time can be an explosion hazard.

The Ransford Difference.

Ransford uses a blend of different materials to control fleas. We use a IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) for long term control, along with a Pyrethrin product to give Quick knockdown of adult Fleas. Material usage will depending on the floor type (Cement, Hardwood, Tile, Carpet) Ransford will use the right material for your particular floor needs.

Not only does pest control make life safer and healthier for the people in our lives, it can also do the same for our pets!
