Pets (all cats and dogs in the infested home) should be treated. Ask your veterinarian about insect growth regulators and other treatments.
Clean bedding (and pet bedding) in your washing machine with detergent and hot water, and dry completely in a dryer (do not air dry). We also recommend you purchase covers for mattresses, box springs, and pillows.
Vacuum the infested area thoroughly including: carpets, floors, baseboards, mattresses, bed frames, and other furniture; and properly dispose of vacuum contents. The areas pets frequently sleep or rest should be cleaned/vacuumed as well.
Dehumidifying the infested area suppresses flea populations, kill fleas and flea larvae. Try to keep the relative humidity below 50% in the infested area for a couple of days. However, lowering the humidity level may be harmful to some people, so you may want to avoid the treatment area until this type of treatment ends and humidity levels return to normal.
