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.
