Advantage flea medicine is simple to apply. Either in pill or lotion format, you treat your pet with the medications. The pet then absorbs the medication into their blood stream. When a flea bites them or comes in contact with the medication, they are poisoned. This prevents them from reproducing, which will lead to the demise of the flea. By cutting their reproductive cycle and the number of fleas, you can use your pet as a flea removal tool.

Advantage flea medicine can be used year round, however, it is recommended for those who do not want to treat their pets all the time, it is applied several weeks prior to the start of flea season. Flea season usually begins in April, so it is suggested that you begin treatments in early march. Medication should continue until after flea season has ended, which occurs in December. Because of this, only January and February are realistically safe for your pets to go untreated.

If you have a flea problem, Advantage flea medication can actually assist you in getting rid of the problem. However, this method takes time. If you have a critical infestation, you will have to use flea foggers or other products to speedily get rid of fleas. As flea bites can linger for over two weeks, fleas can cause a great deal of discomfort for both yourself and your pets. Because fleas will bite anything that is warm with blood, they are also prime candidates for spreading disease. Even though they are not noted for the transmission of airborne diseases as mosquitoes are, it is still a matter of great concern that is worth addressing

One of the advantages you can will derive from flea medication is the prevention of the occurrence of infestation. This is particularly important if your pet goes outside, as the majority of flea infestations begin with a pet who has gone outside and has brought so much as a single flea indoors.

If you are trying to remove a flea infestation, you should take care to dispose of any items, such as vacuum bags, where fleas may breed.
