If you have dogs and cats, you probably also have hundreds of other tiny pests that are hard to see living in your carpet, furniture, bed, and on you and your pets. Fleas and ticks can infest your entire home and reproduce at an alarming rate leaving you feeling helpless at winning the battle against them. There are many remedies for flea control including flea combs, spray, shampoo, bombs, and treatments that help reduce flea populations.
One of the treatments highly recommended for flea and tick control is Frontline. This product is available in several weight groups including frontline plus purple for dogs 45-88 lbs. Frontline breaks the lifecycles of fleas and tick by killing the pests before they have had a chance to reproduce. It kills fleas within twelve hours of the flea jumping on your pet and ticks within forty-eight hours.
If you already have a flea infestation in your home, Frontline may not be able to kill the entire population. Its use is primarily for killing the fleas and ticks that jump on your pet, not ones in the environment. When the fleas have taken over the house, flea bombs for homes are useful weapons against them. The flea bomb releases an airborne pesticide into your home killing all the fleas in its vicinity. It is extremely important that you follow the directions on the flea bomb because the chemicals released can be harmful to humans and pets. Proper ventilation after the use of the flea bomb will make your home safe for pets again.
If you and your animals cannot stop scratching, it may be time to flea bomb your home. Just be sure to follow the directions on the product and keep animals out of the home for the proper duration of time to prevent them from getting sick.
