I have 2 eskie dogs. They are both on frontline. My male is bothered by the flea/bites..he is now on Comfortis. The lawn will be sprayed tomorrow but I wish to treat the interior of home, laminate floors w/ area rugs, but I get bites on my low back while in fabric recliner. What can I use on upholstered furniture along baseboards and on the rugs? Thanks.
For spot treatments like the upholstered furniture, apply PRECOR 2000. It comes out as a light aerosol that can be sprayed lightly over these areas. Ideally suited for furniture, tiled flooring and even carpets, Precor 2000 will kill both the adults and egg stages.
Now since it’s an aerosol, you’ll need to use it 1-2 a month till the problem is gone. So if you want something more “permanent”, go with the once a year FIRST DEFENSE which is a dry, granular product ideal for carpeting. It can be applied under cushions too but since it won’t kill adults, the Precor 2000 should be sprayed over the top to help with current activity. The big advantage with this product is that it will last up to a year or more making it easy to use and very efficient.
Lastly, setting out some FLEA TRAPS in the home can really help. They’ll monitor the areas alerting you to any problem areas you may have missed during the treatment. They’ll also catch a bunch of fleas which will no doubt make it easier for your pets and anyone living in the home. And these traps can last for years so you can keep them working as your first line of defense for future issues.
