Fleas And Ticks Control And Eradication On Your Pets-How
Tuesday, February 9, 2016- By Staff

If you are sure your pet has fleas and ticks, then you need to treat your house:

  • Most importantly, if you have just discovered the fleas and ticks on your pet(s), then quarantine your pet to one room. Hopefully you will soon be killing fleas and tick quickly and you will soon see your little friend running around the house again.

This must be done (unless too late already) so that all pet fleas and ticks will hopefully stay in one room and you won't have a complete flea infestation.

  • Vacuum the whole house to get rid of any fleas and ticks on the floors or furniture. They often like to hide in all kinds of places.  Place a portion of flea collar in the vacuum bag to kill the fleas you vacuum up so they don't escape back into the house.
  • Make sure to wash and disinfect all your clothes in case any fleas or ticks are hiding inside of them, as they often do. Also, you may want to spray your clothes in case fleas have planted their flea larvae inside.
  • Next, shake all rugs, if you have any, and vacuum them as well.
  • You can also use a high quality (not supermarket) flea and tick control drops like Revolution or Stronghold to get rid of any fleas and ticks on your pet.  Use a good flea and tick spray to kill any hiding fleas and ticks along baseboards, carpets and furniture cravases.
  • Make sure to disinfect your bedroom articles and other rooms very well too. Any closets or wardrobes must be thoroughly washed and checked.

How to get rid of fleas and ticks on your pet:

  • First of all,  if high quality drops are not available wash your pet in an "anti flea bath." This often means you will have to wash your pet in a bathtub with water and flea shampoo.
  • Be very careful that the soap and water doesn't go in your pets eyes. Petss naturally hate water and being bathed so most people who don't know how to bath their pet will most likely encounter serious difficulty with this step.
  • After drying your little pet with a towel, sit your pet down between your legs and start the work of combing the ticks out. First tackle one half of its hairs before brushing through to remove the fleas and ticks from the other half. Brush slowly and regularly, trying not to pull out any hairs. If there still are some consistent ticks, then use a pair of pincers to pull them out!
  • When pulling ticks out of your pets fur, you must be very careful to avoid leaving the head of the tick inside, as this will cause infections, some of them deadly.
  • When pulling out a tick, take a lighter and hold it near her or his wet fur.  Do not set your pet on fire.!  Be prepared with water in case this should happen.  Beware to part his or her fur BEFORE lighting the lighter. When the fire comes near the tick, it will roll up and be easy to remove.
    WARNING: Be very CAREFUL when using this method of killing fleas and ticks! Sometimes a better option is to search online for a flea and tick remover for example tick twister.
  • Make sure to buy specific cat or dog flea and tick control. This is needed to be sure that after your hard work killing fleas and ticks on your pet, the fleas and ticks don't come back again.

If you find a cheap supermarket flea and tick shampoo or treatment online, check the fur every few days to be sure the fleas or ticks are really gone.  Often the eggs are not killed and hatch over the next seven days.  If you do see more fleas or ticks, quarantine your pet, and begin the whole process again.  A quality one drop method like Revolution or Stronghold kills fleas and those that hatch or jump on your pet for 30 days, far cheaper and easier in the long run. 

Most other small furry animals do not tend to attract fleas.  Fleas are typically found on small animals like hampsters only during a total infestation, though pet rats can have fleas.  Research fleas and your specific animal before you are forced to find treatments out the hard way.

Hope this will help you quickly start killing fleas and ticks and get rid of fleas and ticks on your pets for good!
