  • Keeping your carpet clean is key to preventing infestations. Use a high-power vacuum or get your carpet professionally cleaned periodically. Or your could get rid of your carpet altogether!
  • When moving into a new location, make sure it has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
  • Keeping your pet and his bedding clean can keep the fleas away. Wash beds and blankets in hot water and dry on high heat to kill flea eggs and larvae. But keep in mind, frequent bathing of your pet will reduce the length of effectiveness of topical flea medications.
  • Don’t skimp on quality of flea-preventative meds. Since fleas lay eggs as early as 24 hours after latching onto your pet, you want to make sure your medication is working as quickly as possible to kill fleas and prevent them from spreading.
