- Put out lawn granules in your yard (they typically last 3 months)
- Spray the inside of your house with an insecticide/larvacide spray. If you don’t add an insect growth regulator, you will not kill the larvae and stop the cycle!
- Treat your pets with a spot on product whether it is chemical or organic.
Another important note is to change whatever chemical method you use as soon as you see it is not working as well as it had been. Fleas actually become immune to a particular chemical if it is used continuously.
Tick collars are a wonderful way to give added protection to your pets when spot on treatments aren’t effective enough. Cat collars need to be breakaway so they won’t get choked if snagged on a fixed object. Flea & Tick collars can last from 6 months to 9 months depending on the brand.
