Fleas Prevention Tips
- Vacuum all rugs, carpets and furniture-especially between and under cushions. Then, seal and dispose of the vacuum bag in an outside receptacle.
- Clear and clean all floors, even closets. Mop all tile and vinyl floors. Sweep all concrete floors.
- Remove all decorative items, pillows, pet food, water dishes and children’s toys-be sure to check for items under beds and furniture.
- Remove all pets. Fish bowls and aquariums may remain if properly covered and the air pump is shut off during treatment.
- Wash or dispose all pet bedding. If laundering, wash pet bedding separately from other linens.
- Mow your lawn and make sure everything on the ground outside has been removed.
- The homeowner needs to arrange for treating the pet. A number of on-animal treatment products are now available. Treatment of pets should be done under the direction of a veterinarian.
