Don’t Let Fleas Interrupt Your Summer Fun

Posted May 29, 2013


Summertime is some people’s favorite time of the year. Who doesn’t like to be outdoors with the kids enjoying the backyard. Usually we prepare our yards by trimming and cutting grass, maybe cleaning out the pool. But how often do you consider the tiny insects we don’t see, fleas.

Fleas are often a problem in the summertime. Your kids and pets are in the yard playing and don’t need to be bothered by pesky little bugs. So what can you do to prevent this from happening?

BugMaster DIY offers a flea spray, Zoecon Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray, $16.95, which contains Permethrin and Phenothrin to kill adult fleas quickly. An inside aerosal you spray on tile, hardwood floors and carpets. Also offered is a Zodiac Oatmeal conditioning shampoo, $12.95, for your pets. This helps keep the fleas off of them and from spreading. If you don’t want to wash your dogs, BugMaster DIY also has a spray for dogs and cats that is applied directly o their coats. Petcor® Flea Spray, $14.95, contains Precor® IGR, an Insect Growth Regulator that targets flea eggs on the animal by sterilizing them.
