Removing a flea infestation from your home can be difficult, but with persistence and care, it can be done. Getting rid of fleas is a multi-step process that will need to be carried out over weeks in order to destroy fleas at every life cycle and end the infestation once and for all.

how to get it:

About Fleas

Flea bites can be annoying, itchy, and can even become infected if they are scratched and left untreated. Flea bites are itchy, reddish, raised bumps that are commonly found around a person’s ankles. Fleas are most commonly found when people begin suffering bites or notice their pets scratching, but you may see live insects on your legs or in your pet’s fur.


Fleas are extremely small and may be difficult to spot. The most distinctive feature is their ability to jump great distances in comparison to their diminutive size. They are usually black or dark brown in color and may be seen crawling in a pet’s fur or on a human’s skin.

They will not remain on humans, finding it difficult to find hiding places. In fact, only 5% of the total flea population in your home will be found on your pet at any given time. Fleas like dark places and will seek out baseboards and carpets, as well as crevices in pet beds and other materials, for their hiding places.

Extermination & Treatment of Fleas

Flea treatment should be applied to pets as directed, to prevent re-infestation. Talk to your vet about options for the best way to treat your pets. In the home, it is necessary to remove as many hiding places as possible. Wash your pet’s bedding and toys in hot water to kill any fleas, larvae, and eggs. Use a spray, bomb, or powder treatment, and vacuum the rooms frequently, throwing away the bag each time to remove larvae and eggs from your home. Don’t forget the lawn. Fleas make their way inside by hitching rides on pets and people on their way indoors.

Exclusive Pest Control can help you decide which treatments will be the safest and most effective for your family.


John was very accommodating and went out of his way to satisfy our needs. We intend to keep his service and would highly recommend him to anyone. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

For the job I had for EPC I am very satisfied. He has made a huge difference - Unfortunately this house had a roach infestation before, but now we are taking the step to end this nightmare. When I contacted EPC for pest control John was very fast in response, so yes I would refer him to others, prices are good and the service is good as well. John was on time, we are very happy.

Being allergic to most bug sprays, I was skeptical about having our yard sprayed. And living in the low country my entire life, I had accepted the fact that mosquitoes are just part of our environment. John came out and sprayed the yard. It was unbelievable! I was literally able to go outside and read a book in the grass. I am a believer!

John responded immediately by phone and treated my house the next day. He was very professional and advised me with the next steps to take to keep my home protected. I'm a very pleased customer and would hire him again, if needed.

I have been using Exclusive Pest Control for 3 years. We live on the golf course with the marsh behind us. So we have a LOT of mosquitos! John has been wonderful to work with and guarantees his services. Without doubt, I can call on a whim to say the bugs are attacking and he comes to our rescue! I’ve even sent him a text message the day before I am having an event at my home and he is always quick to arrive.

I would highly recommend John McGee and Exclusive Pest Control. They are very thorough and professional. I get reminders when my maintenance is due, instead of a just bill for it and no one ever showing up. He is the only one that has actually kept the mosquitos away. When I need an extra mosquito spray because of all the rain, they are always available to get right out, none of this we’ll be in your area in two weeks.
