Fleas may be present in the yard, in the house, or both depending on where the pet(s) live. Flea control in the yard is accomplished with a broadcast spray of Talstar®. The insecticide kills fleas on contact and leaves a residual control that continues to kill fleas as they emerge from eggs. Indoors, a combination of Talstar® and Precor® (a growth hormone) is applied to carpets, floors, upholstered furniture and other areas where pets spend time. Prices depend on the square footage of house and yard.
Broadcast applications of a granular insecticide (Talstar®) provide months of fire ant control in the yard. Rates are dependent on the size of the area to be treated.
Yellow Jackets, Bees, and Bumble Bees
Yellow jackets, hornets, honey bees, and bumble bees will be controlled using Sevin® dust. Rates are $80.00 for nests at ground level.
Pharaoh ants are very small, light red to tan colored ants that nest inside walls and attics. Pharaoh ants can be controlled with Pharaoh ant bait stations (Maxforce®) placed throughout the house, attic, and garage. A residual insecticide application is made around the perimeter of the house in conjunction with the bait placement. Price is dependent on the square footage of the house.
