Q&A Home

Lisa from Indiana writes,

I have a flea infestation that I cant get under control. How much do I need to treat inside house 1200 sq foot?

Is it for yard & home?


With Permethrin SFR 36.8%, you will use 1 2/3 fl. oz. per gallon of water. We do recommend mixing this with an IGR (insect growth regulator) for your first treatment. This is like a birth control for the fleas and will stop them from laying eggs. Archer IGR is a good product to use. You will need to vacuum everyday for 14 days and do a second treatment of the Permethrin SFR. These products can be used in both the yard and in your home. We would recommend treating both so that fleas are not being brought from outdoors, making the infestation worse. These treatments may need to be done more than twice.
