Hi, I'm Trevor with Monster Pest Control, we're located in American Fork, UT. I'm here to talk to you about ridding your house of insects, the topic is how to get rid of fleas in your home. I've got my hand held sprayer, which I've added, what we call an IGR, which is a insect growth regulator. When you do this, you spray all of your carpets back and forth, evenly. All of the baseboard areas, as well as around windows and doors, to treat them. Once you are done with this, you need to stay off the carpet for, at least, four hours until it dries, after that, you need to wait about a day and vacuum your carpet really well. Once you're done vacuuming, remove, either if it's a bag or bagless, remove the bag, or dump out the bagless, and throw it away, make sure that you dispose of that properly.
