All pet owners need to look for an anti flea treatment at some point of time or another. The method that you adopt to eliminate fleas needs to be holistic. You can try a mixture of methods which are based on chemicals and natural. All the things that you buy over the counter are drugs that could harm your pet as they are made up of chemicals. They could cause skin allergy, damage to the internal organs, nervous disorders or even death. You need to use these judiciously. Having said that, if your pet is infested badly then there is no other way but use the chemicals. When we use sprays and powders, the fleas need to ingest them and not your pets or children. But, we cannot ensure that.
Anti flea treatment requires hat after you have eliminated the fleas you do need to adopt measure to control and prevent them from occurring again. Try and check your pet regularly to see if it has got infected. Use a flea comb to comb out any fleas hidden there. If this is done everyday flea infestation can be nipped in the bud.
Vacuum religiously. Reach into all the possible nooks and crevices to ensure that they are dry and flea free. Let the sun into your house as it will serve as a natural anti flea treatment. The bedding that your pet uses is another harbinger of fleas. Clean it regularly. Use special shampoos and pet collars to ensure that no fleas dare come close to your pet.
In spite of all this if the flea infestation still persists then try out insecticidal aerosols. Spray it around the house to kill the parasites. You could also dust your pet with diatomaceous earth which is a natural and chemical free way of getting rid of fleas.
