Insect Pest Control : How to Rid Your Home of Fleas


Hi, I’m Trevor with Monster Pest Control,
we’re located in American Fork, UT. I’m here to talk to you about ridding your house of
insects, the topic is how to get rid of fleas in your home. I’ve got my hand held sprayer,
which I’ve added, what we call an IGR, which is a insect growth regulator. When you do
this, you spray all of your carpets back and forth, evenly. All of the baseboard areas,
as well as around windows and doors, to treat them. Once you are done with this, you need
to stay off the carpet for, at least, four hours until it dries, after that, you need
to wait about a day and vacuum your carpet really well. Once you’re done vacuuming, remove,
either if it’s a bag or bagless, remove the bag, or dump out the bagless, and throw it
away, make sure that you dispose of that properly.

  1. i'm in the pest control industry and he does make some good points, but there is a helluva lot more to fleas than this. i promise

  2. We treated our cats with Comfortis. After two weeks of DIY & storebought failure – I had my house professionally treated last week. I’m still seeing fleas here & there. I’m getting bitten, but not nearly as much as before. I brush my cats & have bathed them & get quite a few dead fleas off them daily. I also still find some half dead, jittering fleas around my house.
    How long after a professional spray, as well as continuous daily cleaning & laundry, will we see no fleas?
    Should I have them come back & treat my house again? The stuff they used had a growth inhibitor.
    I understand they have cycles, and I’m wondering if the fleas I’m finding are the ones that are hatching.
