How to keep FLEAS out of your home and yard

Although you may be treating your pet for fleas you also need to control the fleas in your home and yard at the same time it’s important to treat the grassy area the lawn but, also the areas where the pet likes to rest.

Once inside the house check the same areas which are most used by the pets.

One way to determine if fleas are active is to place a white cloth on the floor in this area.  Fleas are attracted to white and will appear on the cloth.

Once the home has been treated, people and pets need to stay out until the product is dry. Insect growth regulators can be added to the treatment eliminating the need for any indoor follow-up applications.

But, the yard will need a second treatment two weeks after the initial one.  This will break the lifecycle of the fleas.
