FLEAS IN THE HOUSE, HOW TO GET RID OF THEM?

If your dog or cat has fleas all the time, chances are your home is also infested. Indeed, the place of life of the animal is a breeding ground for fleas. In the event of an infestation, the animal and the house must be treated.

HOW IS THE HOUSE INFESTED?

The invasion of your home by fleas is due to a veritable infernal cycle. Adult fleas live on your pet. They lay eggs which fall into the house wherever he goes, and more particularly in the places he likes (his basket, the sofa, the cushions…). From these eggs come out larvae which move to take shelter under the parquet slats, in fabrics, rugs, and carpets...

They then weave a protective cocoon in which they can survive for several months in your home. When they become adult fleas, they will parasitize your cat or dog again and start laying eggs.

HOW TO GET RID OF FLEAS IN A HOUSE?

During a massive infestation of your home, a few reflexes are needed to get rid of fleas: these actions must be carried out simultaneously, on the same day, for optimal efficiency.  Whatever the natural tick remover for cats you use to get rid of ticks on cats or dogs, make sure that it does not harm your pet.

1 - VACUUM EVERYWHERE

Floors, rugs, carpets, sofas, and armchairs...vacuum as much as possible. Take care to dispose of the bag to eliminate live fleas and prevent them from escaping back into the house. Empty and wash the vacuum tank if it is a bagless unit.

2 - WASH EVERYTHING THAT CAN BE WASHED

Think particularly of blankets, cushions, plaids… wherever your pet sleeps.

3 - USE AN ANTI-FLEA SMOKE BOMB FOR THE HABITAT

Eliminate the biggest fleas with a flea repellent in the form of an aerosol or a diffuser (also called a fogger). A diffuser is designed for one room and for a maximum surface area, so it may be necessary to have several to treat all the rooms. Tip: a habitat insecticide spray can allow you to reach the more difficult to access areas (baseboards, niches, car, etc.)!

4 - TREAT YOUR CAT AND/OR YOUR DOG

Break the infernal cycle by using FRONTLINE Combo cat or tick remover for dogs regularly on your animals.

TNT Ticks Combo has a double action: it kills adult fleas on your cat, and it blocks the reproduction cycle of the flea to prevent the infestation of your habitat by eggs and larvae. FRONTLINE TRI-ACT is so fast-acting that it does not give fleas time to lay eggs in your home.

Applied regularly to the animal, these TNT Ticks solutions effectively prevent the appearance of new fleas in your habitat.

Note: all animals in the house must receive appropriate antiparasitic treatment.
