Walk to open flea eggs
After treatment it is advised to walk around the property to wake up the flea eggs that have not yet hatched. Flea eggs cannot be killed by any chemcial on the market. Eggs will only hatch when they feel movement of a potential host. That is why it is advised to walk around the enviroment to encourage the eggs to hatch. The flea will then contact the chemical and die.
Please Note: Flea eggs can lay dormant for more than a year.
Avoid contact with treated surfaces until chemical agent has dried
