does  diy fleas work?


Typically customers tell us that they used a " DIY flea bomb" and the fleas went away for two weeks or so. Then they came back!  Why is this?  The DIY products on the market do not treat the cocoon stage of the flea life cycle. Fleas take around two weeks to ripen in the cocoon stage. That's when they make a return after DIY products.
