Final Thoughts

A few things to bear in mind when using the flea and tick fogger bombs:

  • Ensure pilot lights are turned off and electric appliances are unplugged
  • Put all food away and cover and food handling equipments
  • Remove mattress and box spring in bedrooms

Pet owners – be sure to treat them first and wait for a week or so before fogging the house (because likely they are the starting cause of it all). If you know that pets are the ones that brought the fleas and ticks into the house, try to recall and identify places you’ve been that are likely the source (and avoid going there again). It is also a good habit to wash your pets before allowing them to enter the house.
