    If someone has the stomach flu and they touch something that you have touched, then you are susceptible. People are more likely to get the stomach flu in the winter months, but it can pop up any time of the year.

    STEP 1 – VacuumKill fleasYour vacuum cleaner is your number one weapon in the warYour first step is to vacuum vacuum vacuum! Vacuum your entire house paying particular attention to corners, dark crevices, under furniture, under beds, pet beds, rugs and especially around skirting boards! Put the nozzle attachment on your vacuum cleaner and thoroughly vacuum around all baseboards and edges of fixtures!The vibrations from vacuuming also stimulates the fleas to emerge from their cocoons and thus they will be exposed to the insecticide that will be usedThis is what you are vacuuming up even though you cant see them:EGGSFleas that are living on your cat or dog lay eggs! The eggs drop off your pet and land on your carpet or floor!LARVAEThe eggs hatch and become larvae! These little worm like creature have hair like bristles that enable them to move around! They avoid the light and move to crevices, corners, under furniture, in cracks between floor boards and along skirting boards!PUPAEAfter a while the larvae pupate! This means that they spin a cocoon around themselves and begin a change! In the cocoon they are changing into adult fleas! It is just like a caterpillar which spins a cocoon and then emerges as a butterfly!The more of the pupae you vacuum up the better the outcome! The cocoon surrounding the developing flea is water tight and impervious to insecticides!When you have finished vacuuming dispose of the vacuum bag completely if you have disposable bags in your vacuum cleaner! STEP 2 – Spray Insecticide Flea Treatment For your House YardThe products shown here are for illustration purposes onlyWhen choosing an insecticide read the label! Look for the ingredient IGR (Insect Growth Regulator)IGR is the most important part of the whole flea control process Spray all carpets, rugs, floors and places your pet sleeps with a aerosol, flea bomb or fogger that kills flea eggs, larvae and emerging adult fleas! Check the label of sprays for active ingredients! Use one that contains IGR! Make sure you get into every nook and cranny and pay special attention around skirting boards and under rugs and furniture!A pressure sprayer can be usedIt is difficult to suggest flea control products worldwide as insecticide laws vary from country to country! Below are a few suggestions of products that contain IGR!Precor 2000 Plus (US Canada)Hartz 4 in 1 Flea Fogger (US Canada)IG Regulator (US Canada)Buy online or on ebay or check your pet store for availability!Mortein Flea Bomb (Australia) Can be bought in most supermarkets!What is IGR?? IGR is short for Insect Growth Regulator! IGR is Birth Control for Fleas! This protein works on the developing flea eggs and larvae and stops fleas from developing to maturity so they cannot lay eggs!Flea bombs and flea foggers containing IGR are very effective at killing fleas but the insecticide does not always reach under beds, furniture and rugs! Flea bombs and foggers are designed to be let off in the middle of a room! Be sure to move what furniture you can so as to enable the spray to penetrate carpets and flooring beneath!Precor 2000 Plus is a hand held flea fogger! It has both a knockdown agent and a long lasting insect growth regulator! The fog can be directed under furniture and appliances!Follow the instructions that come with the flea spray, flea bomb or fogger and remember to remove all fish, reptiles and other living creatures from the room!After spraying the insecticide try not to vacuum for about a week if possible as the IGR component will have a residual effect!Read This – Very ImportantIt is important to note that while the fleas are in the pupae stage (in their cocoons) they are not affected by insecticides! The cocoons are watertight and protect the developing flea! This is why you may think you have killed all the fleas and larvae in your home but two weeks later a new flea infestation can occur!Dont Forget about your Yard and GardenDo fleas live in the yard??Yes, you must also tackle your yard and garden! There is no need to purchase special yard spray as you can use the same spray that you sprayed your house with! Spray around where the pet sleeps, in crevices, gravel and sandy areas! If you live in a high set house you will need to spray under the house! Spray patios, verandas, kennels and nooks and crannies! The majority of the yard which is in sunlight should be OK as the larvae tend to avoid bright places!You can also let off flea bombs or flea foggers under your house on a windless day!Next wash all of your pets bedding and soft toys! Shake them well and hang them in the sunlight to dryHome Remedy to kill fleas??You may not like using insecticides and chemicals around your house but a home remedy to kill fleas will not work! You will have to use an insecticide and more importantly you should use an insecti
