how to treat 6 week old kitten for fleas

I have just got a kitten six weeks old an he has fleas I was wondering how best to treat him and my house as soon as I can I have only had him for two days.

First the easy answer; treating the home with one of the methods listed in our FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE will do the job. Since you just got the kitten, I strongly recommend the ONCE A YEAR FLEA TREATMENT combined with at least 1 FLEA TRAP. This process is both easy and highly effective.

Second, puppies or kittens under the age of 12 weeks old are at a disadvantage for treating since there are almost no remedies that have animals this young on the label. The only item we know is safe to use is ECO EXEMPT. Essentially made from food, this item is federally exempt and considered a low impact type product. As such it has a lot of label advantages including a section that allows for the treatment of pets with no age restrictions.

Here are direct links to the products and information mentioned above:
