After the mild winter and warm weather over the Summer months, a Summer and Autumn explosion of flea activity is forecast and it is therefore vital to regularly treat homes and furnishings, as well as pets, to avoid a serious infestation. Johnson's relaunched 400ml aerosol kills fleas, larvae and other insect pests on carpets, rugs, soft furnishings, pet bedding, etc. It also contains a powerful long acting Insect Growth Regular (IGR) to prevent hatching eggs developing into fleas and give continuous protection in the home for up to 6 months. It is now recognized that treatment of adult fleas on pets is not enough to deal successfully with flea infestations, even with the use of spot-on treatments widely sold by the Veterinary Profession and Pet Stores. Regular use of a House Flea Spray is also necessary to deal with 95% of the flea life cycle, which takes place in furnishings etc. where hundreds of flea eggs, larvae and pupae develop rapidly into adult fleas and cause continual re-infestation of pets and homes. Regular thorough vacuuming of carpets, furnishings etc. is also recommended and wash or change pet bedding regularly. Johnson's House Flea Spray Extra Guard with IGR is therefore highly recommended for use in conjunction with treatments for pets eg. Spot-On's, Flea Tablets, Flea Shampoos, Sprays, Powders, etc. Only by controlling the development of hatching fleas in the environment will flea infestations be successfully treated and prevented.
