Keep Your Home from Being a Flea Magnet

Fleas flourish in certain environments. Eliminating their enviroment will help prevent infestations in your home and yard. Here’s what fleas love.

Outside the Home

  • Porches
  • Decks
  • Stairs
  • Around doghouses

  • In pet beds
  • Under furniture
  • Buried deep in carpets
