If you read through our FLEA CONTROL article, you’ll learn that treatments like Advantage and other topical applications for dogs and cats won’t solve flea problems in the home or yard. And though such treatments might help take care of the fleas that get on your pet, if you don’t address where the fleas are coming from, your pet will keep getting more and more fleas making them very unhappy in the process.
Now it sounds like you’ve identified that this is the problem and that in fact, you’re ready to treat the home. This is a step in the right direction for sure. But whether you go with the ONCE A YEAR FLEA TREATMENT or the PERMETHRIN and NYLAR mix is really your choice. That being said, here is some more information that might help you decide.
Since the Once a Year treatment doesn’t kill adult fleas, if you’re seeing a lot of adults right now, like 25 or more, go with the spray since it will make life a lot more manageable right away. But since this treatment lasts so long, many people will apply it to their carpet and then spray over the top with Permethrin every week or two until the adult fleas are gone. This is a fine approach and in the long run, will save on the amount of spraying you need to do because once the granules kick in, you won’t have to spray for another year or so.
We also recommend setting out as many FLEA TRAPS as possible since these can really help collect rogue fleas and get the pupae casings to hatch out.
