Pestrol Flea trap
Pestrol Flea Trap takes care of the fleas in your home in a unique, eco-friendly and effective way. It works by attracting fleas from the surroundings by an alternating light, using a “shadowing” technique.
While most flea traps operate with a constant light source, myFleaTrap® uses an intermittent light source. Research has shown that fleas are more attracted to changing light than a constant light. They will interpret the change as the shadow of an animal passing by and jump after it. Furthermore, the trap applies green light of a specific wavelength (525-nm) that has been shown to be very attractive to fleas.
Fleas can hide in your clothes, on your pets and in your carpets and rugs, which can make your life very uncomfortable. A flea bite is intensely itchy and can cause serious infections by scratching. Professional flea control treatments can cost you thousands of dollars and the chemical sprays can be very harmful to children and pets. Pestrol Flea Trap is an electrical device that monitors and controls flea infestations in your home. Completely Chemical Free, 100% safe and guaranteed to work.
Pestrol Flea Trap will lure and catches fleas from your carpet overnight and will continue to collect fleas as they emerge in your home.
The Pestrol Flea Trap will even work while you sleep. Actually, it works best in the dark during the evening and night.
Based on knowledge and many years of field experience, the Pestrol Flea Trap was originally developed by experts at Kansas State University. Remembering, that beside serving the main purpose, the device should work in private homes and be used near people and their beloved pets. After comprehensive studies and testing, the experts produced a flea trap that not only is environmentally safe & user-friendly but also highly effective.
In fact the Pestrol Flea Trap is today widely trusted and accepted by specialists as a standard tool in international flea research.
Pestrol is the most trusted DIY pest control company on both Australia and New Zealand.
