Steps To Tackle a Pet Flea Infestation

How to break the flea life cycle

Did you know that to break the flea life cycle you must treat your home and yard, as well as your pet? Flea prevention products for your pet will only kill the fleas on your pet. They cannot stop newly-hatched fleas in your home and yard from jumping on your pet. Follow these steps for a flea-free home.

Start a flea prevention regimen

Make flea and tick prevention part of your pet care routine. Repelling fleas on a regular basis helps keep these pests from making your pet their home. Choosing a flea preventative that protects your pet for a full month makes it easier to stay consistent with flea protection.

Treat all pets in your home

Wash your pets with a natural flea shampoo or use a spray or tablet flea remover to quickly kill fleas on contact.

Kill fleas inside your home

Spray your home interior with an insecticide that kills fleas and larvae to help break the flea life cycle. You must spray again after 3-4 weeks to kill newly hatched fleas. Severe infestations may require the use of foggers, which work for several months.

Kill fleas in your yard

Kill fleas, eggs and larvae in your yard, sidewalk crevices and all around the perimeter of your house to prevent new intruders from entering your home. Neglecting this step will allow the flea life cycle to continue in and around your home.

Max's Tip
Max & Molly
Soft and flexible skin helps to effectively distribute flea medication once it is applied. If your pet has dry or flaky skin, give your pet Brite Coat Chews to help restore your pet's skin health.
