Flea Control & Flea Bombs
Flea bombs are a quite popular way of getting rid and killing fleas in the House. Flea bombs are basically small bottles of spray that you can set up around the House that release an insecticide spray that permeates the air, carpet, furnishings etc killing all fleas, eggs and larvae.
Some people prefer to use a spray to a specific area where the infestation of fleas resides. You can’t do this with flea bombs as they are not able to localize the pesticide yo one area, consequently their maybe wastage. By applying the pesticide directly to an effected area you are certain that you are killing the parasites.
