Flea Bomb by tenant? (by Lois [CA]) Posted on: May 16, 2019 5:12 PM

I have a tenant leaving soon who brought in an "assistance" animal.

So I have a few questions.

If you know the tenant has a dog, do you require them to flea-bomb when they vacate?

I've been reading that all surfaces should be cleaned after fogging since it's poisonous.

I do require professional carpet cleaning on move-out.

Should cleaning then take place after fogging?

It could get complicated since the fog should really be left in place for a few days.

Bombs/foggers are generally ineffective unless used in conjunction with something else. The bombs/foggers are used to stir up the bugs and make them run over the secondary pesticide.

If you already require professional carpet cleaning, require a professional pest control treatment as well. --107.77.xxx.xx

This is a classic case of the owner pays for animal exhaust cleanup and that includes pro treatment of fleas, not just dog logs. --76.188.xxx.xx

Pro flea treatment. DIY stuff from Wal-Mart is rarely effective and requires multiple re-treat & vacuuming. Bill the tenant for the cost. I would add a pro-rated daily rent charge as well, due to the nature of the treatment requiring the home to be vacant. But you live in Cali, and so that probably won't work. --173.20.xxx.xxx

Be very careful. The propellant is PROPANE. Since the green folks got rid of other propellants, people have unknowingly been squirting propane all over themselves in flea bombs, hair sprays and others. If you leave it in the air for days a spark could ignite it. It has no odor itself. In fact if you have a grill and leave a blue canister in your car and it leaks out over night you could blow up your car. That's how the people in the Texas commune died years ago. The feds lobbed in tear gas canisters propelled by propane and the commune folks were using kerosene lamps for light and everything exploded. A couple of nice little old ladies from my garden club lost their grandchildren and greatgrandchildren there. --173.61.xxx.xx
