flea infestation

flea infestation

The harboring of fleas, esp. in a home with dogs or cats. It is possible to kill the flea population by treating the house for 24 hr by using naphthalene, permethrins, and other substances.

CAUTION!

Any plants, pets, or humans could suffer adverse effects if they remain in the house during the treatment period. The house should be thoroughly ventilated afterwards to remove the fumes.
