HostGuard is a New Organic Flea Control Solution

New flea control system protects applicators while helping to monitor and control flea infestations.


The HostGuard System Flea System is a new organic flea control solution developed by a pest management professional: Jeff Honeycutt, owner of Apex Pest Control, Asheville, N.C. 

The system consists of a set of Tyvek pants; one pair of socks, booties and gloves; and Guardalone, a natural flea attractant and adhesive. After suiting up, pest management professionals visit suspected “hot spots” where they become the target hosts for adult fleas.

Once the adult fleas are captured in Guardalone they can be easily disposed of; PMPs then do a treatment with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) to kill fleas in the egg and larval stages of development.

I got the idea after I had been bitten during a flea treatment. I have many times been 100% successful on mild to medium flea infestations with only one treatment with HostGuard,” Honeycutt said.

The benefits of the HostGuard System are three-fold: (1) to provide protection to service professionals; (2) to monitor flea infestation levels; and (3) to manage flea populations by catching them in the Guardalone product. To learn more visit
