Its powerful ingredients provide up to 7 months of protection for your home by preventing eggs from developing into adult fleas.

How to use

Before using our household spray, remove all humans and pets from the infected area. After vacuuming and cleaning the inside of your home, spray all surfaces where fleas can nest. The most common areas include pet bedding, pillows, blankets, furniture, and floors.

Avoid soaking the area and make sure all surfaces are dry before reentering. For best results, treat your dog or cat with a product registered as an on-animal flea treatment. We recommend Wags Advance® For Dogs or Purrs Advance® For Cats.

Tips for use

What does it cover?

PetFriendly's flea and tick home spray provides a strong, yet gentle defense against bugs and parasites. Our spray is safe and effective for use in your home. It works to:

How do I use it?

To resolve your flea issue and safeguard your home, follow these instructions: 

1. Vacuum throughout your home.

Female fleas can lay 40-50 flea eggs a day. Adult fleas live and feed on your pets. But, they can also lay eggs on your furniture and floors, as well as pet bedding, pillows, blankets, and toys.

While fleas aren't an indication of a dirty home, they can spread easily and can be challenging to see. Vacuuming doesn't kill fleas but will help you remove them to avoid re-infestation. After you vacuum, discard the contents immediately in an outdoor trash can.

2. Start with an inconspicuous area.

To avoid discoloration, apply a small amount of home spray in an inconspicuous area to test. Apply underneath or on the edges of your fine furniture or floors. Wait a while for the product to dry completely.

Once it dries, check that the material on carpets, rugs, and furniture appears normal. Then, continue to spray another surface uniformly. Our flea spray is designed to be non-staining. Read the entire label and avoid soaking.

3. Treat each home surface uniformly with a light mist.

For best results, apply an even layer of fine mist over multiple home surfaces including carpets, blankets, furniture, and bedding. Over-treating fabrics with our flea spray may reduce its effects. So, avoid soaking carpets, furniture, and blankets with our flea and tick home spray.

4. Let the entire coat dry completely before allowing pets in the area.

Drying times vary depending on humidity, climate, and materials. But, we suggest waiting at least an hour before allowing pets (dogs and cats) and humans back into the treated area. Generally, it is safe around the entire family.

Does your flea spray stain? Is it non-staining?

Our household spray is non-staining and should not stain fabrics. But, we suggest starting by applying it in a small inconspicuous area of your fine furniture. Spray the surface uniformly with a light mist until moist. Let it dry completely, then check for any discoloration.

Where can I use it?

Our flea and tick home spray can be used on indoor and outdoor surfaces. A fine mist is recommended to keep areas (like food on countertops) safe from harsh chemicals.

It is safe on specific items in your home like:

  • Pet bedding, pillows, blankets, and toys

  • Fine furniture

  • Carpets, tile, and hardwood floors

  • Throw rugs and carpets

  • Outdoor surfaces

Our household spray is also safe to use in:

  • Homes and garages

  • Hospitals

  • Hotels and motels

  • Kennels and veterinary clinics

  • Offices, schools, and supermarkets

  • Transportation equipment

  • Warehouses & utilities

  • Other commercial or industrial buildings

While this product can be used outdoors you will need a different solution that repels mosquitoes to fight against heartworm. It only covers cockroaches, ants, fleas (flea eggs), and ticks.

How long does it last?

You can safeguard your home with our flea and tick spray every 14 days as necessary. This aligns with the flea life cycle (fleas, flea eggs, and larvae). If you apply an entire coat throughout your home, it will last about 7 months.

How much is it?

One aerosol can costs $20!

Does it have a strong smell?

The solution comes in an aerosol can, so it has a slight smell of pressurized air. But, there is not a detectable scent. That being said, odor sensitivity is different from person to person.

Why is your spray the best for flea infestations?

Our product has a very high percentage of IGR — one of the highest on the market. Our spray is extremely effective, easy to apply, and dries quickly.

Is it safe to spray on dogs and cats?

No! Do not spray your pets directly. It's best to keep them out of the area while treating them before allowing pets back in.

If your pet comes into direct contact with our flea and tick home spray, monitor them for symptoms. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with lots of water.

For medical emergencies, contact our 24/7 hotline at (888) 738-3911.

What about natural flea and tick home spray?

Pet parents can use natural ingredients to create a solution at home. Many natural products include:

  • Cedar oil

  • Lemon juice

  • Vinegar

  • Witch hazel 

But, we recommend using a product with an IGR to treat an active infestation. Otherwise, you may not see long-term results. If your treatment does not contain any IGRs, only adult fleas will be killed. Flea eggs and larvae will continue to hatch and grow, making a flea infestation harder to tackle.

My pet has an active flea issue. What should I do?

Fully ridding your dog or cat of harmful fleas requires time and work to break its three life cycle stages (eggs, larvae, adults). But don’t worry, we’re here to help you solve an active flea issue.

If you identify an active infestation, apply a topical flea treatment right away to all of the pets in your home. Then, safeguard your home with our household flea and tick spray that kills fleas and ticks on contact.

How can I tell the difference between fleas and bed bugs?

Both pests are reddish brown in color and similar in size. But, bed bugs are flat and oval-shaped. Fleas have long, narrow bodies similar to grains of rice.

Fleas, flea eggs, and ticks are difficult to see. If you need help getting rid of fleas on your dog or cat check out our blog:

What's the best way to avoid re-infestation?

The best way to avoid fleas and ticks on dogs and cats is through year-round, effective, and safe protection. When used as directed, flea treatment that provides flea, tick, and lice control for your pets is the best defense.
