Flea bombs contain a variety of insecticides that kill fleas in their target areas. These chemicals can have negative side effects for people and pets. It is best to use these products with caution and keep pets and people out of the house for at least 8 hours. They can also easily kill fish, so it is best to avoid using them around them.
Flea bombs are highly flammable, so it is important to close any vents before using them. Also, make sure that you remove all food sources from the room before you use the bomb. Also, you should vacuum the affected area to remove flea eggs, larvae, and pupae. If possible, you should cover any exposed surface with plastic tarps.
Flea bombs kill adult fleas and larvae but not eggs or pupae. They also don’t provide ongoing protection because they do not last more than two weeks. After this time, the surviving fleas will develop into adults and may be able to resist the insecticide.
While fleas are known to prefer dogs and cats, they can also affect humans. Taking steps to protect pets and children from fleas is essential to avoid future infestations. For best results, use a professional flea exterminator. Professionals will use a combination of insecticides and cleaners to kill fleas. These products should be applied to the entire house and not just a specific area. Also, make sure to treat any previous pets.
