How can I get rid of fleas?
Fleas can be easily managed but the key to overcoming a flea infestation is to ensure that both the pet and their surroundings are treated. One treatment is usually sufficient to control the infestation, as the products used carry on working for some weeks. The fleas should die off gradually after coming into contact with the insecticide. In some cases, depending on the scale of the infestation, a second treatment may be required or if resistance in suspected. Where very high populations of fleas are present, a single application of insecticide may not be sufficient, as even a 99% kill rate can still leave sufficient survivors to form the basis of a new infestation. If there is still a problem 2-3 weeks after the treatment, you can contact Pest Solution to book a further treatment.
