Controlling fleas in your home can be relatively easy, but it can take time to wipe out the entire infestation. The initial treatment of fleas will wipe out the adults, however there will still be eggs waiting to hatch and removal can be difficult. To overcome this it is crucial to also apply a growth inhibitor, this will interfere with the moulting stage of the larvae and wipe out all of the flea population.
Household pets are great places for fleas to live and breed, often the regular treatment of your pet will keep the fleas under control, unfortunately what can happen when the pet passes away or a house is vacated with pets, there is no longer any flea control mechanism in the building, within a few weeks there can be an outbreak of fleas.
When fleas are present, it is important to vacuum all floors and furniture prior to treatment, if you have a bag vacuum, dispose of the bag, if it’s bag less, then wash the dirt containment part of the vacuum cleaner.
