Mortein Flea Bomb kills flea infestations and breaks the flea breeding cycle ensuring fleas in their egg or larval stage are unable to mature into adult biting fleas. Mortein Flea Bomb has a residual action to keep fleas away for up to 9 months.
Available in packs of two 150g cans.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO READ ALL DIRECTION ON THE PACK BEFORE USE.
Shut off all electrical appliances including lights and refrigerators. Extinguish pilot lights, naked flames and cigarettes.
Vacuum carpets thoroughly.
Shake can well before use. Place can on a sheet of newspaper in the centre of the room. One can to each average size room. (16 square meters; floor area 4 x 4 metres). For most effective results, entire dwelling should be treated. Use additional cans for remote or large rooms or where full flow of mist may be obstructed.
Tilt sprayer away from face and push locking tab down firmly until it snaps into place. Can will start to spray before it locks.
Leave room and close door so the mist does not escape. After 2 hours open all doors & windows and allow treated area to air for 30 minutes. Allow complete airing before turning on electrical appliances and pilot lights. Remove dead insects by vacuuming.
The Residual Effect
If at the time of letting off the Mortein Flea Bomb (or any other insecticide) there are fleas in the pupal (cocoon) stage of the life cycle, they may remain unaffected as they are protected by a silken cocoon. However, the residual effect of the bomb’s IGR means that when the adult fleas emerge from their cocoons the eggs they lay will be killed. The lifecycle is again broken.
In heavy infestation situations, where the product is used on a first time basis, it may take 2 to 3 weeks to achieve a complete break in the breeding cycle and you may continue to see adult biting fleas before the IGR takes effect on the life cycle. During this time additional protection can be achieved by use of a Mortein Surface Spray such as Mortein Easy Reach Surface Spray, Mortein Odourless Surface Spray or Mortein High Performance Surface Spray.
NOTE: The life cycle of fleas is divided into four stages: Eggs, larvae, Pupae and Adults.
