There are no fleas in pet heaven. We can make our homes feel like Shangri-la for our pets but we can only do so much. So let’s deal with pet realities.
Fleas are a big bother and you can’t just slam the door on them as you would a door-to-door salesman. Fleas cause itchiness, and pet diseases such as dermatitis, dehydration and even tapeworms. They also cause stress not just to pets, but also to pet owners, the humans.
Seeing these fleas all over your pet, or even creeping on your floor is totally disgusting. Sometimes you can’t avoid stepping on blood-fat adult fleas, and seeing those spots of blood on the floor just gives you the creeps.
It would be wearisome to do what monkeys do: locating the fleas and picking them one by one using your bare fingers. That requires good eyesight and a tough stomach. And one more thing: your pet might get too restless as you keep pulling those tiny parasites that stick like adhesives in his fur.
Now, distressed pet owners don’t need to worry anymore. A lot of remedies for flea infestation are readily available. Flea combs, flea dips, and flea sprays are just some of the products that have been proven effective.
Flea sprays are the handiest solution to flea infestation. They fight fleas crawling in your pets’ fur or even on your own arm. You can also use flea sprays on your carpet and wherever fleas roam, except your food dinner ware of course.
One brand has been tried and tested by a lot of pet owners. Ask some of them and they’ll tell you to just RAID those bloodsuckers!
So start waging your little chemical war on fleas with a trusted brand. Raid flea treatment products by SC Johnson, which come in aerosols, work on controlling the flea population by killing them – every single one of them that dares invade your home.
Why Raid and not other flea killers? Here are some of the reasons:
It works on fleas and ticks on surfaces around the pets’ sleeping quarters, walls, door frames, the floor or anywhere around the house.
It can be applied to adult fleas and during its egg-larvae form on pets and is effective for up to 4 months.
It is also applicable to other insects at home like silverfish, crickets and cockroaches.
It is a non-staining and odor-free spray.
It pays to visit a veterinarian for a thorough checkup of your pet. The vet can also tell you how best to solve your pet’s flea problem. But Raid can do the job it promises to do. The products are easy to use and effective.
Among the top Raid products in the market today are as follows:
Raid Flea Killer. It is used on contact such as your pets (dogs and cats).
Raid Flea Killer Plus Dog Spray.
Raid Flea Killer Plus Carpet & Room Spray. Raid Flea Killer Plus Fogger. It has a fogger with similar functions to that of the Raid Flea Killer Plus Carpet and Room Spray.
Raid Fumigators. This creates a fumigating fog that penetrates to any possible hiding places of these insects.
With these choices, you’re surely well armed against fleas. If you don’t want to take chances, use all of them. Take note, however, that Raid flea treatment products are flammable. Just make sure that you follow the instructions and you keep it from children’s reach.
If you should use the fumigator, make sure that you don’t leave the house without turning all the pilot lights off as well as the open fires. Be ready with any preventive measure in case of any problem. Never risk your house or your family with a careless flea elimination procedure.
We have to consider that pets are vulnerable to fleas, but this shouldn’t scare us from having pets. Just don’t let fleas ruin your relationship with your pets. Let Raid keep the bond tight and itch free.
