Flea prevention tips
Combating a flea infestation in the home takes patience as for every flea found on an animal there are many more developing in the home.
Many spot-on insecticides may kill the fleas on a family cat or dog, but may turn the pet itself into a roving fleatrap as it collects newly hatched fleas.
To rid your home of fleas, it should be treated with a fogger or spray insecticide containing an approved insect growth regulator.
Frequent vacuuming may also help, providing that you immediately dispose of the vacuum bag afterwards.
May flea collars, powders and shampoos still contain organophosphate-based insecticides, despite the fact that many strains of insects have become resistant to those compounds. They may also display an unacceptably high level of toxicity toward mammals.
