  • THE FLEA LIFECYCLE

  • WHERE DO FLEAS COME FROM?

    Did you know that just 5 fleas on an untreated pet can lead to more than 1 million eggs infesting your home in only 4 weeks?* Gulp. But where do they come from?

    Most fleas come into contact with your pet from the environment. From the garden, to the pub and the park, it can feel like nowhere is safe from the blighters. 

    Wildlife such as foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels and rabbits can be flea-carrying culprits, bringing them into your garden ready for your cat to pick up.

    Anyone who comes into your home (human and pet alike) can unknowingly carry fleas in with them. 

    Believe us when we say prevention really is better than cure. Adult fleas can lurk within your home for up to 5 months before hatching. So even if you think you have previously dealt with an infestation, it could still come back unexpectedly. 

    Break the cycle with Itch - the UK's personalised parasite protection & pet wellbeing subscription service. Our vet-approved, flea-killing products including our house flea treatment, Spray & Slay, are here to help you say goodbye to the microscopic mingers, for good.

    After one application, our flea spray will continue to kill adult fleas for up to 8 weeks.

  • HOW TO USE ITCH FLEA HOME SPRAY

    Here’s an easy, step-by-step guide on how to use Itch Flea Home Spray:

    1. First of all, make sure that all doors and windows are closed. There shouldn’t be any pets around when you treat the room. And we’re not just talking dogs and cats - this also applies to birds, reptiles, insects, spiders and aquariums, where possible). 

    2. Wash all your pet’s bedding on a hot cycle (60 degrees will be enough to kill fleas).

    3. Make sure you test Itch Flea Home Spray on a hidden bit of fabric before spraying upholstered furniture. 

    4. Shake the can well, remove the lid and hold the container upside down, pointing directly at the surface to be treated, at a distance of about 50cm.

    5. Spray directly on carpets, flooring and skirting boards and underneath any rugs or blankets, paying particular attention to any cracks and crevices (those fleas get EVERYWHERE). Avoid wetting furniture and carpeting and don’t over-apply to polished wood surfaces. A five-second burst will treat approximately one square metre. 

    6. Once you’ve sprayed, leave the room and give it half an hour before ventilating the area by opening the windows and doors for at least an hour.

  • SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS

    Dogs and cats 
    When used correctly, Itch Flea Home Spray is not known to cause any issues or reactions with dogs or cats. Once dry, it binds to all sprayed surfaces in such a way that it won’t come off onto the skin, making it safe for dogs and cats coming into contact with that surface. 

    Aquatic life
    The active ingredients in Itch Flea Home Spray can be harmful to aquatic organisms - e.g. fish in aquariums. Tanks must be either removed from the room during spraying or covered with cling film, with aerators turned off for 2 hours to reduce the risk of toxicity. 

    Pregnancy
    Itch Flea Home Spray is safe to use during pregnancy, although we advise taking sensible precautions such as avoiding inhaling fumes and washing hands after use. 

    Babies and young children
    Leave your baby/young child outside of the room being treated and don’t let them back in until the room has been well ventilated. Once dry, Spray & Slay binds to all sprayed surfaces in such a way that it won’t come off onto the skin, making it safe for anyone coming into contact with that surface, including babies and young children. 

    Asthma
    Itch Flea Home Spray itself represents no particular danger but the propellant is carbon dioxide, and increased levels of this gas can be associated with asthma attacks. If you have any concerns, have a chat with your doctor and preferably get someone else to spray for you. Make sure rooms are well-ventilated before returning.

vet approved!

For severe infestations, I recommend using Itch Flea Home Spray alongside your first Itch Flea treatment. One dosage of flea treatment is not enough to kill all of the fleas that may already be living in your home. Household sprays work by killing all adult fleas in your home when and where you spray rather than waiting for each flea to come into contact with the product on your pet’s skin, which is why they work so quickly.
