Solutions for Fleas Infestation

Oh well, after the earlier post on the investigation on fleas infestation, let me share with you all on the solutions which have been taken in solving the problem.

Generally, as the scenario mentioned in the earlier post, the first step in order to get rid of the fleas is to get rid of the rats. Reason being is, the fleas were brought by the rats. Your rat control at the external compound needs to be in tip top condition. If it is an individual compound with fencing, set first, second and third line defences. You may read my past old post on Campus Infested With Rats in order for you to understand more on how to control rats at the external compound.

Why do I stress so much on the external compound instead of internal compound? As I always mention, rats infestation is always come from external to internal. Therefore, if you have a good control at the external, you will automatically solve the internal problem.

Next will be proof all the potential entry points for the rats. Stop them from coming in again and this will be part of your building structural maintenance programme. 

You can do it this way. If the fleas infestation is very heavy, carry out misting treatment immediately. Proof the rats entry points as soon as possible. This will help from having fleas re-infestation problem. After the proofing, carry out another round of misting. Dispose any unused items and do your housekeeping practice. Depends on how heavy is the infestation. By doing housekeeping and removal of unused items, you are actually disturbing their harbouraging area and trigger the hidden fleas activity. If there are still some active fleas around, do another round of misting. However, most of the time 2 rounds of misting will be able to treat the infestation.
