If you like pets, flea control is something you will have to decide on sooner or later. Once they enter your home, fleas don’t restrict themselves to pets and enjoy feasting on human blood as readily as on their canine friends. Finding small red welts on your skin is as unpleasant as it is dangerous. Since fleas inject their saliva in the body of their hosts while drawing blood, they easily transfer various diseases to those they feed upon some of which can be fatal if left untreated.
An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Instead of putting off taking a decision on flea control until the little buggers practically take over your house, you should take steps to prevent them from entering your home. Fortunately, use of various Hartz flea Control products such as Hartz Flea & Tick shampoo, Hartz Flea Drops, Hartz Fleas & Ticks Carpet Powder and Hartz Flea & Tick Collar can prevent fleas from bothering you and your pet. Your pet is the first in the line of defence and once you are able to prevent pests from biting your pets and making a home in their fur, half the battle is won. The most common, and first defense you have against fleas is through your pets. Even if a flea manages to hitch a ride on the back of your pet, these products prevents them from living long enough to breed.

If fleas and ticks have already invaded you place, you may need more stringent means and multi pronged programme.
It is important to keep some basic facts in mind when you choose any flea control product. Fleas not only travel long distances in short periods of time, but also remain alive for a long time without food. So if you have fleas in your kitchen where the dog sleeps you can be pretty certain that they will be in your bedroom also. Just using Hartz Flea & Tick shampoo may not be enough if you are trying to deal with serious infestation.
