We have put together kits for your convenience. The Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit has everything you will need to do a complete treatment for fleas indoors and outdoors. It is recommended that you keep your pets and children out of the area until the product has dried completely. Once it has dried, it is safe for them to return to the area. Be sure to do treatments every 14 days. Indoors, you will need to vacuum daily in between treatments.
Indoor applications of the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit would need to be made every 14 days until complete eradication. Be sure to vacuum before the application and every day after that, as well as getting your pets treated the same day of the application. Outdoor treatments can be repeated on a monthly basis. How long this kit lasts will depend on the total treatment area that you have to treat. Each can of NyGuard Plus will treat up to 2,000 square feet. The Temprid SC and Archer IGR will treat at least 4,000 square feet outdoors.
We recommend the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit. When treating for fleas they will not normally be in areas where there is no carpeting as they have no areas to hide, harbor or lay eggs. You will need to wipe up the flim the PT Alpine left on the tile floor with a mop or soapy water and a towel to reduce the risk of slipping. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
The insecticides in the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit will both kill adult stages of insects on contact and have residual effects once the products have dried as well. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
The Cyzmic CS and Archer IGR included in the Outdoor Flea and Tick Kit are both labeled for indoor use, but can only be applied as a crack and crevice spray. Fleas like to harbor in carpeted areas, so the Cimexa Dust and PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol included in the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit will be a better choice because they can be broadcasted across carpeted and non-carpeted flooring.
Dust mites can irritate your skin, but they do not bite you. We suggest you contact your Cooperative Extension Office to obtain a positive identification of the pest you are dealing with. We would be happy to recommend a product once you have an identification.
