Fleas infest pets, pet quarters, rooms, carpets, and upholstered furniture. These pests are usually introduced into the home by infested pets.
Treat infested pets by spraying, dusting, or shampooing them with a product made for killing fleas. Destroy infested pet bedding, or wash it in hot, soapy water. Vacuum carpeting, chairs, sofas, and other areas or objects that may contain eggs and larvae-ridden lint or debris, and then dispose of the vacuum bag. To prevent reinfestation, do not allow infested animals to enter the house and yard, and keep pets away from infested areas. Flea collars help prevent fleas from multiplying.
