Is Onslaught labeled to spray furniture for fleas?

My groomer just informed me that my dog has fleas. She sleeps on the couch all day long and I would like to spray it with something. I'm going to treat the entire house and was looking for a product that I can use everywhere. Can I spray Onslaught on the couch?

Answer:

Onslaught is not labeled for use on furniture. We recommend that you use Ultracide for the indoor treatment as it can be used on all carpeted areas, pet bedding and upholstered furniture. Ultracide Spray contains Permethrin and Phenothrin to kill adult fleas fast. It also contains Methoprene (an insect growth regulator) to prevent reinfestation for up to seven months. Methoprene penetrates deep into the base of carpet and upholstery fibers, where pre-adult fleas live, and targets fleas in the egg and larval stages of development, preventing them from producing new infestations of breeding, biting adults. Be sure to thoroughly vacuum immediately before the treatment and every day for the next 14 days to help speed up flea elimination.
