Corky’s Flea Control Service for the Yard
Flea invasions in yards and landscapes are very hard to combat, but with Corky’s system of extermination, long term control is possible.
Fleas transmit serious diseases that affect both man and animals. It is important for our health and that of our pets to control and prevent flea infestations. View our Flea Identification page to learn about the most prevalent species found in Southern California.
Protect yourself, your family, your pets and your guests, with this outdoor home and yard flea control service. Each property is different therefore our customized treatments focus on the flea’s resting and breeding areas unique to your property. This two-step service (includes 2 treatments two weeks apart) is charged per application.
Here’s an overview of what you may expect our service to include.
Property Inspection: We inspect the property for the most likely harborage areas. Most fleas rest or rather lie in wait for a meal in areas such as tall grasses, under and in shrubs and trees, in leaf litter and along fence-lines or anywhere where pets or feral animals frequent.
Treatment: In order to gain effective control, we perform 2 treatments, 2 weeks apart. The first treatment targets the adult insects and the second targets the newly hatched and hungry fleas. Depending on the level of infestation additional treatments may be necessary and are charged separately.
Recommendations: Your technician will make recommendations as to measures that will promote successful control of these pests on your property. The following should be accomplished before any service is performed in order to ensure a successful treatment. Other recommendations specific to your property may be made at the time of service.
Make sure your pets are on a flea control program. Flea baths and flea collars are not consistently effective but they will contribute somewhat to the protection of your four footed, furry family members. Consult your veterinarian as to what is appropriate for your pet.
Interior services: In some cases, inside flea treatments are necessary. When this is the case, the interior flea service is priced separately and still involves two separate treatments 14 days apart. An interior service is always accompanied by an exterior one in order to provide effective results.
It is our commitment to provide timely and effect control/prevention for our customers, but without a regularly scheduled maintenance program, infestations are sure to recur since fleas are brought in on pets, feral animals and even by ourselves. This is why flea prevention is included (after an initial flea service) with Corky’s Ultimate Pest Control Service Plan.
