Worried about how to get rid of fleas? Did you know that the adult fleas living on your pet make up only 5% of the total flea infestation? The remaining 95% are actually invading your home as eggs, larvae, and pupae! This means to successfully prevent and control flea infestations you need to make sure that you're treating your home effectively, as well as your pet. Fleas aren't just a nuisance, causing severe discomfort and irritation to our pets, but they can also have more serious consequences on the health of our dogs and cats. Fleas can carry and transmit tapeworm infections and can even cause allergic skin disease and anaemia (especially in young puppies and kittens).
Routine preventative treatment is critical - a single flea can lay up to 50 eggs a day, so a full-blown infestation can take hold very rapidly if your pet or home are left unprotected. Flea infestations used to be a problem only over the warm summer months. Not anymore. Thanks to the increased use of central heating, fleas can be a year-round nuisance for your pets and your home, so make sure they're always protected!

How does it work?
Say R.I.P. to fleas with Reliable Instant Protection:
1. Tetramethrin provides instant 'knock-down' (paralysis) of adult fleas, preventing them from biting your pet or yourself.
2. Permethrin is a fast-acting, long-lasting insecticide. It kills adult fleas and flea larvae within minutes to hours of exposure (depending on the dose received).
3. S-methoprene is a long-lasting insect growth regulator that prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into adults, breaking the flea life cycle.
Dechra RIP Fleas Extra environmental household flea spray is also fully approved for the control of house dust mites, a common cause of allergic reactions in pets and people. Regular cleaning and vacuuming are reliable ways to reduce the number of dust mites living in your home.
