Fleas In The House
Individuals who keep dogs as pets need to make sure that they are responsible enough in
providing adequate care and protection to their pet dog. It is important to ensure that your pet dog has a clean
place to sleep in and proper training is given to your pet dog when it comes to potty training. This will help to
ensure that your dog stays in a clean environment. Grooming your pet dog on a regular basis is also quite
important. This will involve cleaning your dog and brushing its hair to remove any unwanted substances and give it
a shinier and healthier coat.
Proper grooming and cleaning of your pet and your environment is the first
step to prevent the infestation of fleas in the house. In the case where fleas have found their way
into your home there are certain things you can do to make sure that fleas in the house are completely
eradicated. The two most popular methods of eradicating fleas from your pet dog and your home is by
using adulticides or insect growth regulators.
Experts on fleas have noted that the best and only way to completely get rid of fleas in the house and from your pet dog is by using both the adulticides
and insect growth regulators. The main purpose of the adulticides is to kill all the fleas presently infesting your
dog. Adulticides are quite effective since from the moment it sprayed on your dog all the fleas will die
within a period of 24 hours. Once all the fleas are killed then you can use the insect growth regulator which
works by destroying the eggs and larvae that are yet to hatch. When these are destroyed then your pet dog will be
completely free of fleas.
Adulticides and the insect growth regulator are both used externally. However there are various
other products used to eradicate fleas which are normally administered orally. A good example of this is the
Capster flea treatment which is used on dogs. This drug is a combination of both the adulticides and insect growth
regulator. After orally giving this drug to your pet dog, it goes straight to the bloodstream. This works quite
effectively since when a flea bites such a dog, insect growth regulators are passed on to the eggs of the fleas and
prevent them from hatching.
The effectiveness of this oral medication is quite evident. However, experts have always
emphasized on the importance of using a household spray as the first step of getting rid of fleas in the house.
Such types of household sprays include the Indorex household flea spray. This will help to ensure that all the
fleas found around the house are completely killed. From this point you can be assured that your dog will not
suffer from another flea infestation even after using the necessary medication. It is also important to use this
spray regularly around your household in order to keep fleas at bay.
