Our Flea Control Service
Fleas are tiny, wingless, parasitic insects. If a flea were scaled up to human size, it would be able to leap over a 30 story building! Not only do fleas annoy cats and dogs, but they also bite humans, causing skin irritation, allergies, and diseases like typhus and tularemia. So we recommend putting your pets on a flea and tick prevention, then calling the experts at Dayton Pest Control, LLC to treat your property. This combination will ensure your family and four-legged friends are protected from fleas, especially during the warmer months.
Our Unique Approach To Flea Control
A successful flea treatment requires a lot of help from the customer. Properly preparing the home for your treatment before our arrival will significantly increase the chance for a successful service!
1. FLEA INSPECTION
If necessary, we’ll determine the severity of the infestation by inspecting the entire property. Once it is confirmed that you’re dealing with a flea problem, we’ll move forward with our flea treatment. Many homes can be successfully treated with just one visit, while some may require follow-up treatment.
2. INTERIOR TREATMENT
We’ll carefully apply aerosol residual and insect growth regulators (IGR) on all floor surfaces, paying particular attention to the areas your pets spend most of their time. Not only does this approach kill fleas on contact, but it also interrupts the breeding cycle. Best of all, this method lasts for 4-6 months!
3. PET MEDICATION
Dayton Pest Control recommends that you contact your vet and have your pet put on a medication regimen for flea control in conjunction with our treatment. This is important to successfully eliminating and preventing future infestations.

If you’re dealing with a flea infestation, or want to safeguard your home from these jumping pests, call 937-478-5776 today!
Flea bites leave you with swollen, itchy marks. Hence the reason why your pets scratch so much after they’ve been bitten. And, in some cases, flea bites cause allergic reactions in humans. But the real problem is fleas carry insect-borne diseases just like mosquitoes and ticks. According to the CDC, the number of illnesses caused by flea bites tripled from 2004 to 2016. So if you’re dealing with a flea infestation, you need to act fast!
Flea control starts with your pet(s). There are plenty of options available to treat your cat or dog, and these should be discussed with your veterinarian. Next, call us at 937-478-5776 to schedule your flea treatment.
