Fleas Management

Adult fleas are parasites that draw blood from a host. Larvae feed on organic debris, particularly the feces of adult fleas, which contain undigested blood. Fleas commonly prefer to feed on hairy animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, squirrels, rats, mice and other domesticated or wild animals. Fleas do not have wings, although they are capable of jumping long distances. Eggs are not attached to the host. Eggs will hatch on the ground, in rugs, carpet, bedding, upholstery or cracks in the floor. Most hatch within two days.

Tips on flea control
  • Purchase a good flea comb and use it every day to remove adult fleas from your animals’ coats. This will provide instant relief as well as helping you keep tabs on the flea population.
  • Bathe your animals with a gentle shampoo containing calendula, oatmeal, or aloe once every week or two. Throw their bedding into the washer while you’re at it.
  • Vacuum your house as frequently as possible, and stow the vacuum bag inside a plastic bag in your freezer to kill any fleas or flea eggs that you happened to vacuum up.
  • Give your animals a B-complex vitamin supplement every day to boost the health of their coat.

The complete eradication of fleas requires expertise and thorough treatments. MAJOR’s offers a two-step, two-in-one treatment programme. A combination of adulticide chemicals and an Insect Growth Regulator is applied on affected areas via an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) mist. The microscopic mist particles easily penetrate inaccessible areas including crevices, cracks in the wall, false ceilings and upholstery. Further to this, a targeted aerosol treatment is carried out at the areas where fleas are found. The combination treatment eliminates adult fleas whilst impeding the growth of the nymphs. About 14 days later, a second follow up treatment targets remaining fleas which survived the first purge. It is also targeted at the nymphs that may have hatched after the 1st treatment. Thus, the thoroughness of MAJOR’s two-step treatment programme largely helps in preventing recurring infestations.
