Biting Insect Control treatments are specialized and species specific.
Flea Control for instance, a long term micro encapsulated residual insecticide is mixed with an insect growth regulator and is applied to key areas. These key areas are usually areas where these insects frequent. In the case of Fleas, they frequent animal bedding, sandy areas where cats frequent such as litter boxes and sand pits. Thick carpeted areas are also targeted for eggs and flea larvae. A long term residual is applied because of the larvae and eggs. Modern day chemicals no longer penetrate deeply and kill off eggs etc. Because flea eggs can remain dormant for up to 18months an insect growth regulator is used to prevent fleas from further multiplying.
