After applying Alpine WSG, why should the room be vacuumed as soon as the application has dried? I was told vacuuming causes flea eggs to open quicker allowing the fleas to contact the treated area and be killed?


When treating indoors for flea, you should do a thorough vacuuming of the home first before any treatments are made so that you can suck up any dead or alive fleas, as well as flea feces and eggs that are present. Remove couch cushions to vacuum underneath, and any other areas the pets frequent in the home. Once thoroughly vacuumed you can apply an insecticide labeled for indoor flea treatments, such as the Alpine WSG, and focus applications to heavily infested carpets, rugs, etc. After the product has had sufficient time to dry, its recommend to start vacuuming every couple of days until your next treatment (14 days later) to help remove any fleas dying from the insecticide, as well as to help stimulate any eggs that have not hatched to be exposed to the product you have put down. Continue this process until the flea infestation is gone.
