Flea control takes teamwork. Here is a checklist of things you can do to help us in treating your home for fleas.

Please follow these helpful hints and the success of our treatment will have a happy result.

Your home will need to be ready for us to treat before the appointment. If for some reason you are unable to prepare before your appointment please call us to reschedule for a more convenient time.


  • Clear all carpeted and floor areas of boxes, clothing, toys, and any other items that will prevent treatment.  (Please remember this includes closets too.)
