How Do You Kill Flea Eggs?
Can you please explain how to kill flea eggs? Thank you.
The key to killing flea eggs is using an IGR or Insect Growth Regulator. Most IGR's cause growth abnormalities in the egg and larvae stages that prevent growth. Ultracide is a very effective flea control aerosol that provides immediate kill of adult fleas and prevents formation of new adults from eggs or larvae. Ultracide is a very safe and effective flea control product that is used widely by professional companies such as Terminix and Orkin in homes with children and pets all the time. You should only apply Ultracide to carpeted areas and upholstered areas. Do not apply on top of couches and chairs where people rest their arms, fleas do not breed in these areas. You would want to spray around the foot of the furniture, and underneath couch cushions. You should have children and pets in another room while you are treating. After treatment, allow 30 minutes to dry and then it is perfectly safe for children and pets to re-enter the room. Vacuum immediately before the treatment and every other day for the next 14 days. A second treatment may be needed after 14 days for heavy infestations.
