Interior and Exterior Flea Control
At Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions, we believe in applying a holistic, environmentally-friendly approach to flea control. From years of experience, we know that a comprehensive treatment plan should always include both interior and exterior measures to limit the chances of recurrence.
Preparation for the Flea Extermination Process
- Applying flea control products to the dog or cat
- Removing any fleas from pets on the day we arrive
- Washing all rugs and pet bedding
- Vacuuming all carpet and furniture
During the warmer months in Boca Raton, FL, our teams see an increase in flea infestations. Female fleas may lay eggs on furniture, pets, or even humans during the colder seasons, only for the eggs to hatch months later when the weather heats up. The life cycle of a flea takes between two weeks and several months, depending on the conditions.
Interior Flea Treatment
When the flea extermination process starts, we will first focus on areas frequented by pets. From there, we will begin to spread out and continue applying our high-quality, eco-friendly growth regulators. Once we have treated the entire home, we will turn our attention to the front yard and back yard.
Exterior Flea Treatment
Some customers ask us to treat their homes’ interiors only. However, we always recommend applying our flea control products in the yard, especially if the customer owns pets or regularly sees wild critters running across the lawn. It’s far too easy to track in a few fleas from outside to do away with the exterior flea control process.
Indications That Flea Treatment Is Necessary
- Humans experience multiple flea bites
- Pet suffers sores or hair loss from scratching
- Homeowner notices a flea once per day

Types of Terminates
These will live and infest in dry wood and do not require contact with the soil, unlike the subterranean and Formosan species. They feed on dry wood; however, you can still find them in woods near water. They can build multiple colonies in your home hence may be a bit difficult for you to treat. They will shed wings after swarming; thus can be easily noticed and differentiated from other types.
These social insects live in trees and other outside sources that also provide their food–cellulose or wood. These termites are aerial attackers and fly into your attic or ground crawlspace. They can also start their damaging presence by doors, windows, and siding. Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions offers several different, economical, and convenient treatment plans to eliminate these wood-destroying organisms from your house or business. Since they live differently, the treatment is also termite-specific.
Damp wood Termites:
These are termites that live in high moist content woods where they source their food. They infest homes from leaky pipes, places, or places where wood is touching a damp area. They don’t build mud tubes but cover their entry points with fecal matter.
Subterranean termites are the most common types of termites that tend to be found in every state. This kind of species will live underground and in moist areas aboveground, especially in secluded places. To gain access to food sources, they build mud tubes that protect them from the open air. They can be the most destructive when not controlled. They come in different species, e.g., the Formosan termites. They are much more harmful than their dry wood cousins, and a colony may contain up to a million termites. The economic impact upon your home can be mitigated with the professional application of Termidor.
Termite Extermination Process
No Tent Termite Control
“No Tent” refers to the preferred treatment against Drywood Termites. As with all our services, we thoroughly inspect your property for signs of an infestation. It may be iridescent wings in the attic or on a window sill. It may be the entire visible termite body. It could be swarming around a light in your house in the evening. If you should discover the frass (fecal pellets) of these termites, then you know that some damage, perhaps significant, has already occurred. Generally, in CBS block homes, localized treatments can remedy this infestation.
Our technicians can treat known galleries in the wood with an injection of a foam Termidor product. Before they die in several days, some of the dry wood termites will groom and feed other termites transferring the killing agent in the product. This will reduce, if not eradicate the colony, down to an insignificant number. The attic or crawlspace may be sprayed with Timbor to destroy and add residual protection against any future dry wood termite flights.
An honest and thorough inspection is needed to ascertain that the structure is treatable using the above processes. For older framed homes with heavy and numerous infestation points, a fumigation-TENTING- of the structure may be required. Most homes can forgo this intrusive and inconvenient service. But, if Shoreline
Environmental Pest Solutions thinks fumigation is a proper treatment; we would recommend that, though we do not offer this service. In this case, we would never attempt to provide an alternative service that would not solve your problem. We are a family-owned and operated company with an outstanding reputation. Our “No Tent” process offers numerous advantages over fumigation. Your family or business does not have to shut down and move out for several days, no removal of un-canned food, cosmetics, and medications. Your pets are not dislocated; there is no damage to exterior landscaping (that hopefully we fertilize and protect for you.) And the structure, and in particular, the roof, is not subjected to traumatic exposures. If we can offer our services for the treatment of Drywood Termites, we will provide a guarantee that is binding to the property as long as the annual renewal is paid.
By treating the perimeter of the foundation with liquid Termidor, removing any visible mud tubes (termite highways), and protecting access points, Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions can successfully eliminate the active infestations and safeguard your home.
We GUARANTEE IT!
Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions can provide both “No Tent” solutions for Drywood Termites and Termidor trenching, foaming, and spraying to eliminate subterranean termites from your home or place of business.
