The first absolute "must" for an indoor flea job is
to use products that are labeled for indoor flea use.
In order for an insecticide concentrate to be given an indoor flea label, it is
tested for specific safety measures. Once this type of product has been
properly applied and treated surfaces have been allowed to dry, the treated
areas must be safe for people and pets. Professionals in charge of
formulating, testing and marketing indoor flea products have extensive knowledge
of various situations or environments where these pesticides are to be
used. For instance, they know that cats and dogs lay on these surfaces and
that they groom themselves, licking their paws and feet. Small
children crawl and play on these surfaces; small children also pick up many
items off the floor and place them in their mouths. All of these
situations (as well as many others) are taken into consideration before an
insecticide or IGR concentrate is given the all important "indoor flea
Indoor Flea Control Products
When dealing with an indoor infestation of fleas, a
combination of products should be used. You need an insecticide and an insect
growth regulator (IGR) used in together. The products we suggest for
use indoors have the important indoor broadcast label
needed to safely do the job. The insecticide kills adult
fleas as they hatch; the IGR prevents all eggs and larvae from growing up or
maturing into biting, jumping, reproducing adult fleas.
When choosing products for an indoor flea problem, you will
want to use an odorless or super low odor combination. We have had great
results using Permethrin
SFR (concentrated professional strength Permethrin) or Onslaught
insecticides; use NyGuard
IGR or Nylar IGR
with initial indoor spray treatment.
Each 1 ounce bottle of Nylar IGR will cover up to 1,500 square
feet of flooring and furniture. If your home is larger than 1,500 square
feet, order extra IGR so that your home is covered sufficiently. The
Petcor Flea Spray is for spraying dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and pet beds or
resting areas. Petcor contains natural pyrethrins and Methoprene.
The pyrethrins will give you a quick knock down of existing fleas on your
pet. Methoprene is an IGR that will inhibit the growth of flea eggs and
flea larvae on and around your pets.
When faced with an outdoor flea infestation, use the Outdoor Flea Kit.
