Hi, I’m Amber with Domyownpestcontrol.com.
Today I’m going to show you how to get rid of fleas in your house as well as how to get
rid of fleas on your pet. Eliminating fleas from your home is a high priority to help
keep you and your pets safe and happy. The products you’ll want to use are a flea aerosol.
As with many of our flea aerosols on our website they all contain the main two key factors
to eliminating fleas. The have the “adulticide” which will kill the adult fleas in the area
as well as an IGR birth control for the fleas to help halt the reproductive cycle. You’ll
also use a flea dust. This will get sprinkled on the carpet raked in with a broom and then
excess will be vacuumed up. We’ll show you how to do these later. Then you’ll want to
treat the other main important part of your home, your pet. Treat them with a flea topical
as well as a flea spray on their coat to help eliminate the fleas. Now we’ll show you how
to do the treatment to get rid of fleas in your home. Step one to doing an indoor flea
treatment, vacuuming. The most important part of any indoor flea treatment is vacuuming.
Not vacuuming is usually the reason why many homeowners have a hard time getting rid of
fleas in their home. Vacuuming does a few things. First it will suck up some adult fleas
on the surface so when you are done you should dispose of the bag or dump out the reservoir
if it is bagless. Second and most important, vacuuming stimulates the flea eggs to hatch.
Fleas are protected in their eggs so getting them to hatch will make them exposed to the
products when you apply them. Step two, initial application. After vacuuming you’re read to
apply the aerosol product in your kit. Make sure there are no toys or items on the floor.
Kids and pets should be outside or in another part of the home. The aerosol contains an
“adulticide” to kill adult fleas, but most importantly, a flea IGR that prevents them
from reproducing. It’s kind of like birth control for fleas. This can is applied upside
down about three feet above the carpet. It is recommended to start in the back of the
room and work your way out. In a waving motion, like you were spraying spray paint on the
floor, depress the can top and thoroughly treat the room. It is important to get under
beds, chairs, as well as treat the bottom part of any draperies, couches, chairs, and
especially pet bedding. Once the entire home, carpets, upholstered areas, pet bedding, and
area rugs are treated, it will take a few hours for the product to completely dry. After
the flea aerosol has been applied, you should apply the Cimexa dust on all carpeted areas
and rugs. Sprinkle the product on the carpet and then work it in with a broom. You should
plan to leave the home with kids and pets after treating for a few hours to allow the
flea aerosol product to dry. Upon returning to the home, you should vacuum one more time
to stimulate the flea eggs and vacuum up any residual dust on the carpet. After the flea
aerosol is dry and you have vacuumed up any residual dust it is safe to allow kids and
pets back into the room. Step three, vacuum again! Fleas reproduce every 2 weeks. The
first application is typically effective for 10 to 14 days. The key to breaking the life
cycle is to continue vacuuming every day to stimulate the flea eggs. You should vacuum
every day that you can after the first treatment for 10 to 14 days. The more you vacuum, the
more effective the treatment. Step four, treat again! Our kits come with 2 cans, 1 for each
treatment. You should vacuum and re-treat just as you did the first time in exactly
14 days after the first treatment. Even if you have not seen any fleas after the first
treatment, you should still perform an indoor flea treatment again. Flea eggs can be deep
in the base of the carpet and may hatch again after 2 weeks. You want to make sure you have
a fresh flea treatment applied if any straggler eggs that did not hatch from your vacuuming
decide to hatch out. In bad flea infestations, more than 2 treatments may be required. You
should continue to vacuum often and treat every 2 weeks until the problem is resolved.
If you have fleas or ticks inside your home, your loyal dog or cat may be the reason why.
Don’t kick them out though…we have the solution to your pet’s flea and tick treatment needs.
We have with us today one of our loyal pets, Lily. She’s going to help us show you the
best way to do a treatment on your own pet. It’s important if you have pets in the home
that you take them to the Vet to get a flea and tick dip the same day you do the treatment
or you can use one of our professional products to do the treatment and solve the solution
yourself. We recommend Petcor Flea and Tick Spray as a great quick knockdown, and we also
recommend the Prefurred Plus flea and tick treatment for ongoing maintenance. When getting
ready to treat your pet, you always want to make sure you have on gloves to protect your
skin. When you’re using the Petcor you’re going to apply one to two pumps with the easy
spray bottle to the pet’s skin. Us your gloves and use your hands to rub the product into
the pet’s skin. You’ll normally use one to two pumps per pound of the pet that you have.
For smaller pets you may want to apply the product onto a towel and then rub the towel
on the pet. Petcor will treat fleas, ticks, and lice and kill them on contact, and continue
to kill for up to one week. Repeat weekly as needed to help protect your pet. For long-term
control for fleas and ticks on your pets we carry a full line of Prefurred flea and tick
protector. This is the same active ingredient as the popular brand fipronil but for a much
lower cost. Each box comes with a three month’s supply, and you apply it to your pet according
to the directions on the box. Our goal is to provide a safe and effective treatment
at a price you can afford. The average cost of a flea control treatment by a professional
pest control company can range from $250 to $500 depending on the amount of area to be
treated, and how many trips the company has to make. You can save money on indoor flea
treatments by purchasing our professional grade pest control products and using them
correctly. I hope this video helped you. We’re always here to help, and we appreciate your
