by | May 20, 2019 | Pest Control

Beyond Pest Control is a family-owned and operated business that serves the residents of New York City and the surrounding area. It prides itself on using green and organic products that harm only specific pests, not pets or children. Beyond Pest Control will tackle any unwanted insect or animal including rats, bedbugs, fleas, roaches, and mice.

How does Beyond Pest Control handle a flea infestation in NYC?
Fighting a flea infestation is a massive undertaking, for both the affected animals and their home need to be treated. While adult fleas generally spend the bulk of their time on their host, usually a dog or cat, their eggs fall off and land on carpet or bedding. It generally takes a week or two for a flea larva to reach the pupa stage; after it emerges, it will jump on the pet. That is why only treating the animal is futile.

Beyond Pest Control will treat the animals and their home. They will thus clean the carpet, bedding, and other places often visited by the pet. If the owner has a yard, they will treat that as well. In this situation, animal control may be needed, for wild animals like opossums and rats can carry fleas.

How do they handle bedbugs?
The first thing the exterminator will do is ascertain the presence of bedbugs, which both emit carbon dioxide and are attracted to high carbon dioxide emissions. They will thus use a machine that detects carbon dioxide. If it indicates a bedbug infestation, the exterminator will use an industrial-strength insecticide that will not harm people or their pets. Beyond Pest Control does not recommend throwing away a mattress before treating it, for the bed bugs will eventually leave it and infest another building.
