Treating the Pet
First step for flea control is to eliminate the breeding site. According to one flea research expert, the Cat Flea adult is “a permanent ecto-parasite on pets”, meaning it does not jump on and off the pet, but stays on board, hidden in the dense fur. It only gets off as an adult flea if it is forced off by your brushing or the dog’s chewing.
There are many materials now available to use on the pet, and the best ones (Petcor Flea Spray) will affect not only the adult fleas, but also the eggs that they lay. These contain a growth regulator that kills the eggs that come in contact with the chemical. This same chemical can be applied to your carpets and furniture and it keeps the flea larvae ever from becoming biting adults. There is, of course, also regular bathing of the pets, possibly with a flea shampoo that can definitely be an effective pest control.
“Ultrasonic” flea collars, that claim to set up “flea free” zones around your pets do not work in any way, shape or form. Dozens of studies around the world at several universities (including U of Florida) have come to that same conclusion.
