Killing Dog Fleas By Nipping Them In The Bud

Flea Free - The Easy Way

Do you know that one of the most effective ways of killing dog fleas isn’t by killing them per se? No, the way to rid your dog and your home of fleas for good is to keep the pests from being born in the first place.

Sound ridiculous? Hear me out. It’s normal to question the idea, especially when you don’t see how killing dog fleas can take a back seat to birth control. Sure, it’d be great if you kept your dog’s fleas from increasing in number, but wouldn’t that be all prevention would be good for? Keeping the population as is?

Wouldn’t it be better to focus your efforts on treating dog fleas that are already there, since that would eventually cut the population count to zero? Short answer: no.

If the extent of your flea elimination plan is killing as many fleas as you can, then you’re doomed to frustration. You’ll likely keep at it for a while, wondering why the flea problem keeps getting worse despite your best efforts. Eventually, you’ll give up, submitting to the unfathomable superiority of the filthy parasites sucking your dog dry.

Take my advice, though, and your dog could be flea-free in a matter of days. Why is that?

One thing you failed to take into account in your approach was the typical flea’s rate of reproduction. A single flea lays around 20-50 eggs a day, and can even lay up to 2000 in a lifetime. What’s more, these eggs can only take a couple of days to a couple of weeks to hatch if conditions are good.

The worst part? These eggs are only a fraction of the size of an adult flea, making them almost impossible to find with the naked eye, and equally hard to remove. They’re also typically immune to many treatments that are specifically designed to kill adults, meaning by the time you kill one flea, a couple hundred more will emerge to take its place. Still think mindlessly killing dog fleas is a good idea?

Like I said earlier, your best bet is to nip the problem in the bud by preventing the fleas you’re currently dealing with from reproducing. Only then can you take the necessary steps to kill off the adults and their remaining eggs.

It’s not as hard as hard a task as you think, thanks to the miracle of Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs). These IGRs make it impossible for the fleas that come in contact with them to reproduce, effectively breaking the flea life cycle by preventing future births.

IGRs come in several shapes and forms, like sprays or powders known for treating dog fleas. Some of them even have adulticides mixed in, allowing you to kill off adult fleas while ensuring those that have yet to hatch won’t have any offspring of their own.

So if you want to do away with those pests for good, advocate a better approach than just killing dog fleas by the numbers. You’ll control the population count a whole lot better just by practicing some birth control.
