How Many of You Can't Get Rid of Fleas?

  •     The first thing to know about fleas is they do not live on your pet or just outside. Fleas jump on your pet to feed and the rest of the time they are embedded in your carpet, upholstery, etc. laying eggs. You must treat all pets and environment to successfully get rid of fleas!
  •     Treat all dogs and cats in the house with a reliable top spot. We recommend using Frontline Plus, sold through veterinarians. This product is absorbed into the skin and dispersed through the hair, killing fleas that jump on your pet for 30 days.
  •     If you want to get serious about getting rid of the fleas we also recommend treating with Capstar. It is a tablet that starts killing fleas on the pet within 30 minutes, but only lasts for 24 hours. If you give the capstar the same time as applying the Frontline Plus, by the time the capstar has worn off, the Frontline Plus should be at work.
  •     Vacuum your home well. Spray your home with an environmental pesticide that contains an insect growth regulator (IGR). We recommend using Knockout E.S. by Virbac. We do not recommend using "bombs" as they go up and down and cannot be directed where you need to go. A spray can be directed to treat all the areas that fleas like to hide, anywhere warm, dark, and moist. Spray as a mist, do not saturate. Treat all areas carpeted, and spray your base-boards for any wood, tile, or linoleum floors. Direct your spray under appliances and furniture. Wash any bedding where your pet sleeps. Be sure to treat your vehicle(s) if your pet(s) have been in them.
  •     You must re-treat your home / vehicle in 3 weeks! There is a stage in the flea life cycle called the pupae stage that nothing kills. That stage will hatch out in 21 days. If you miss the 3 week repeat treatment, the fleas will already be reproducing, laying eggs, etc. And then the cycle starts all over again and you have to start from scratch.
  •     It is strongly recommended that you re-treat your pet(s) with Frontline Plus every 30 days. Your pet should stay on Frontline during the spring through the fall, or at least until there is a hard frost that sticks. If you use wood to heat your home, it is recommended to spray your wood with Knockout E.S. before bringing it into your home, and keep your pet on Frontline year round.
  •     If you continue to treat your pet(s) monthly with Frontline Plus, you should not have to repeat treatment on your home/vehicle after the initial 2 treatments.
  •     Please be cautious of fraudulent products, and products purchased at your local store such as Walmart and Tractor Supply. Some products can be harmful or fatal to your pet. We have seen first hand in our clinic what toxic flea medication can do. Visit www.hartzvictims.org to read some stories, or share some of your own.
