Sharing buttons:

please are you kidding me this is one of

the worst external parasites for your

pet hi I'm Keith McCoy with solutions

pest in line please live and breed on

warm blooded animals consuming blood and

also cause our pets to scratch

constantly until they're raw but you're

not exempt either they will attack you

as well that's why it's important that

we get immediate control before it

spreads throughout the yard and the

house in order to do this we need to

follow the solutions four-step process

in eliminating fleas the first step to

the process is identification

what do fleas look like what symptoms

should you look for well you need to

know that fleas go through complete

metamorphosis that means they go through

an egg stage larva pupa and adult the

adult stage is the most common of these

that you'll see it represents about

three to five percent of the total

infestation fleas are about a sixteenth

of an inch long brown in color and their

bodies are vertically flat which enables

them to very easily maneuver throughout

the hair of their host as for symptoms

and what to look for on your pet well

the most obvious they'll keep you up all

night long from scratching on you you're

looking for raised red whelps something

similar to a mosquito or a bedbug bite

the second part of the process is

inspection you know maybe you woke up

one morning you had red welts on your

body or maybe your dog or cat kept you

up all night long scratching these would

be some concerns that you might have an

infestation here are some things that we

can do to confirm if you have fleas or

not the first thing we want to do is the

most obvious let's check your pet you'll

want to start by combing through your

pet's hair either using your fingers or

a brush you're wanting to look for adult

fleas or black specks that will be laid

on the skin that resemble black pepper

these are actually adult flea feces now

it's time to move on to the inside of

the house we want to focus on where our

pets frequent the most this likely is

where your pet either rests or sleep

if you have a cat that might be a

windowsill if you have a cat or a dog

maybe they sleep in a pet bed or they

sleep on the floor next to a window all

of these areas will need to be very

closely inspected remember we're looking

for adult flea feces it resembles black

pepper if you confirm that you have

fleas inside then you can be assured

that you have a problem outside because

fleas got transported to the inside

either from your pet or from you we also

want to take a look on the outside and

inspect those areas where our pets

frequent the most flower beds ground

cover under shade trees all of these

areas will need to be thoroughly and

closely looked at the third step of the

process is control now that we've

verified that we have a flea problem

we'll want to start with preparing the

inside of the house for the application

we want to make sure we pick up all

loose items remove pet bed covers wash

and dry them vacuum the floors and the

furniture if using a bag vacuum cleaner

remove the bag and dispose of outside or

if you're using a canister type make

sure you rinse it after using now that

we have the inside prepared we're ready

to apply we're going to use a product

called Nova sided Nova side is ready to

use aerosol that combines four different

types of chemicals also it has an insect

growth regulator in it that will prevent

future reproduction of fleas Nova sides

not only label for fleas but also many

other types of insects it can be used on

many different types of floor surfaces

carpet linoleum tile ceramic tile wood

floors you'll want to start at the back

of the house you'll turn the can upside

down and apply right at knee height

directly to the floor surface working

your way out towards the front of the

house make sure that you stay off the

treated area until it dries your spray

pattern should overlap about 10 to 15

percent moving on to the exterior we're

going to use two different products one

by FNL P granules to reclaim IT

concentrate we'll want to make a fresh

cut on the turfgrass first then we're

going to apply by Finnell P granules

using either a hand spreader or

spreader we're gonna apply it to the

entire turf also make sure you focus on

those areas where your pets rest more

frequently such as flower beds ground

cover shady areas underneath trees once

we have applied the product then we're

going to start using the reclaim IT

we're gonna apply the product using

either a hose end sprayer pump sprayer

or backpack sprayer whichever you choose

we want to make sure that we use enough

water to carry our concentrate down to

the soil it does this absolutely no good

to just wet the turf grass you start at

the back of the yard you work your way

out towards the front make sure that you

have a nice even coat that covers the

yard keep your dogs and cats and

yourself off the turf area until it

dries if you have a house that's up on

blocks make sure that you apply the

product up underneath there as well next

we can't forget about our pet

unfortunately they're the reason why we

have the problem in the first place

we'll want to make sure we use an

approved product such as preferred spot

owned or pet coir flea spray check out

our video on how to properly apply these

products to your dog or cat

the fourth step to the process is

prevention the prevention of fleas is no

different than the control process for

an active infestation you'll use the

same products Nova side on the inside

reclaim IT and biphenyl P granules on

the outside the only difference is we're

going to use these products in the

spring in the summertime that's when

fleas are most active we'll also want to

make sure that we continue to vacuum on

a regular basis on the inside remember

if it's a bagged vacuum cleaner dispose

of it outside after each vacuum if it's

a canister rinse it out also make sure

that we treat our pets on a regular

basis either with the preferred spot own

or with the pet core flea spray flea

control can be difficult don't get

discouraged if you don't have immediate

success oftentimes it takes two to four

weeks before you eliminate the flea

problem be patient diligent follow the

solutions four-step process if you do

that we guarantee you 100% that you

eliminate your flea infestation for more
