Flea treatments are procedures used to treat flea infestations in human or animal populations. This is typically achieved using an adulticide to kill adult fleas and an insect development inhibitor (IDI), such as lufenuron, or insect growth.
Adult fleas spend most of their time on the dog or cat, not in the carpet. This is why treatment of the pet is an essential step in ridding a home of fleas.
A fine-toothed flea comb run through your pet's fur can confirm it if it picks up adult fleas and maybe some “flea dirt,” little spots that look like.
