Should I Flea Bomb My House? | How to Use Flea Bombs

By Bridget Ambrose

If you’ve been dealing with a flea infestation, you may be considering using a flea bomb to get rid of the pests. Flea bombs can be an effective way to remove fleas from your home, but they must be used correctly in order to be effective and safe. In this blog post, we will discuss when flea bombs are necessary, the different types of flea bombs that are available, and how to use them safely and effectively.

When is it necessary to flea bomb your house?

Flea bombs are most often necessary when a flea infestation has become severe. Since these forms of treatment can leave behind chemical residue harmful to pets and children, we suggest trying other less drastic forms of flea removal first. Consider cleaning your pets with flea shampoo, vacuuming your home thoroughly, and washing all of your linens first. Then, assess the situation from there.

If you have been dealing with fleas for a while and have tried other methods of treatment without success, then it may be time to consider using a flea bomb.

Fleas can be very difficult to get rid of, so don’t be discouraged if your first attempt at using a flea bomb doesn’t completely get rid of the pests. It may take several treatments before the fleas are eliminated completely.

Flea bombs should not be used as a standalone treatment for fleas – they should be used in conjunction with other methods of treatment, such as flea pills, sprays, and dips for your pets.

Flea bombs should also not be used as a preventative measure – they should only be used when there is an existing flea infestation. Remember, these methods kill fleas using poisonous chemicals, so it’s not a good idea to carelessly use these chemicals in your home.

If you are considering using a flea bomb to get rid of fleas, make sure to read the instructions carefully and follow them exactly!

What are the different types of flea bombs available?

There are three types of flea bombs available: aerosol bombs, foggers, and sprays.

Aerosol bombs release a flea-killing agent in an aerosol form. They are the most common type of flea bomb and are available at most grocery stores and drugstores.

Foggers work by releasing a flea-killing agent in the form of a fog. They can be used to treat large areas, but they should not be used in small rooms or spaces because the fog can be overwhelming and difficult to breathe.

Sprays are applied directly to the skin of animals or people who are infested with fleas. Sprays should not be used on furniture, carpets, or other surfaces because they can leave behind harmful residue.

How should flea bombs be used?

Flea bombs should be used in a well-ventilated area and according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It is important to read the instructions carefully and follow them exactly, as improper use of flea bombs can be dangerous.

When using an aerosol bomb, it is important to shake the can well and point it away from your face and body when spraying. Consider wearing gloves and a face mask so you don’t breath in any harmful chemicals.

The bomb should be placed in the center of the room and allowed to work for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer. After the allotted time has passed, everyone who was in the room at the time of treatment must leave immediately and not return until it is safe to do so.

When using a fogger, it is important to remove all pets and animals from the home before treatment. The fogger should be placed in the center of the room and allowed to work for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer. After the allotted time has passed, everyone who was in the room at the time of treatment must leave immediately and not return until the instructions deem it safe to do so.

Sprays should be applied directly to animals who are infested with fleas. Unless instructed otherwise, they should not be used on furniture, carpets, or other surfaces because they can leave behind harmful residue. Again, be sure to check the product’s use cases and instructions for every application.

For more information on fogger safety and use, take a look at the EPA’s guides and resources.

When is it safe to return to the treated area?

It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for flea bomb use very carefully, as improper use can be dangerous. Generally speaking, it is safe to return to the treated area at least 10 minutes after all of the bombs have detonated and the fog or spray has dissipated. It is important not to return until the directions say it is safe to do so, as some non-organic flea bombs can be harmful if inhaled.

If you are considering using a flea bomb to get rid of fleas, make sure to read the instructions carefully and follow them exactly. Flea bombs can be an effective way to remove fleas from your home, but they must be used properly in order to be safe and practical solutions.
