Will lice spray kill fleas?


Yes, there are some lice spray products that are labeled to kill both lice and fleas. One of these products is NyGuard Plus. Nyguard Plus kills all stages of fleas quickly and provides residual control of fleas for up to 7 months. Proper cleaning and vacuuming before and during flea treatments will greatly impact the results achieved while using NyGuard Plus.  It is imperative to vacuum thoroughly before application, and every day or every other day after application for at least the first 14 days of treatment.

Application Instructions: Hold can 2 or 3 feet from surfaces to be treated. Turn container upside down and point valve toward surface to be sprayed. Be sure to apply uniformly using a sweeping motion to carpets, rugs, flooring, floors, drapes and all surfaces of upholstered furniture including under cushions. Avoid over wetting furniture and carpeting. A fine mist or spray applied uniformly is all that is necessary to kill fleas and ticks. Be sure to treat pet bedding, as this is a primary hiding place for fleas, ticks, and their eggs. No need to remove pet bedding after treatment. DO NOT TREAT PETS. Use a registered flea control product on your pets in conjunction with this treatment.
