Petscience Flea Bomb
PetScience 12 month Flea Bomb provides up to 12 months flea larvae control.
Contains IGR (Insect Growth Regulator - prevents flea larvae from developing), and Pyrethroid insecticide (kills adult fleas). Propellant: Hydrocarbons. Contains no chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)
Net Contents 110g (200mL)
FOR EFFECTIVE HOUSE TREATMENT:
Used at the recommended rate, one (200mL) PetScription Triple Action 12 month Flea Bomb can will treat 2 average rooms - 3 cans will be needed for the average sized home and up to 4 cans for large homes. Or, a 200mL PetScription Triple Action 12 month Flea Bomb treats an area of 60 square metres.
All carpet areas used by cats and dogs should be treated. Dogs and cats should be treated for fleas with a rinse, spray or powder before being allowed to re-enter treated rooms.
Pets and people should return to the treated house shortly after treatment is finished, i.e. within 2 - 4 hours. Floor vibrations (from footsteps) are the usual trigger for flea pupae to hatch; when hatched, they are exposed to knockdown and persistent kill (from permethrin).
For best results, treat the home 3 WEEKS BEFORE, or AFTER RETURNING from holidays. When the house is still, fleas will not hatch from the pupal state.
The best time to use home treatments is IN THE SPRING (September/October). This will stop the first generation of fleas from reproducing and attaining large numbers at the beginning of Summer.
Pyriproxifen deposited by PetScription Triple Action 12 month Flea Bomb persists for up to 12 months in carpet and furnishings, to prevent the hatching of flea larvae.
Repeat treatment each spring, or when signs of re-infestation appear.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
For best results, vacuum all floors before treatment and dispose of vacuum cleaner bag contents. Don't vacuum for 5 days after application, to allow treatment to be fully absorbed into carpet. Cover or remove food and food utensils. Close all external doors and windows. Turn off fans, air conditioners, gas and electrical appliances. Spread out and expose any cushions, furnishings or pet bedding used by animals, to allow spray to reach all areas where fleas, eggs, and larvae may hide. Remove pets but leave their bedding. Remove fish tanks, or cover and switch off air pump. Do not spray directly onto plants. Place can upright on a newspaper, centrally in the area to be treated. Depress activator tab until locked, and leave treatment area. Vacate the treated rooms and leave undisturbed for one hour; then open all doors and windows and allow ventilating for 30 minutes.
USE OF OTHER TREATMENTS:
To ensure good flea control the flea breeding cycle must be attacked at each point. Products from the PetScription range are specifically designed to be used together to achieve flea control on the animal and in the environment.
1. Treat all pets in the household with a suitable rinse, spray or powder.
2. For concrete surfaces, regular cleaning (preferably washing or hosing) is advised. Concrete will soon inactivate both insecticides and I.G.R's.
