What is the best way to resolve a home infestation?

Flea infestations are unpleasant for you and your pets, and can take 3 months or more to resolve, so be patient. Follow our 5 steps to help resolve the problem:

  1. Ensure all cats, dogs and flea-bearing pets in your home are continually treated with an appropriate product at the recommended intervals for at least 3 consecutive months.
  2. Vacuum more often than usual – ideally daily - and include places your pet regularly visits, for example the car. The vibration caused by vacuuming helps to encourage pupae to hatch.
  3. Regularly wash your pet's bedding at a minimum of 60°C.
  4. Treat your home with a household flea spray containing an insect growth regulator (IGR), such as FRONTLINE HomeGard®. Always read the instructions on the can before use.
  5. Ensure your pets have access to all the same parts of the home that they usually do. Fleas present in those areas will be killed when they hop onto your treated pet.
