Advantage Fleaction Plan for flea infestation

Have a flea-mergency?

The Advantage® Fleaction Plan can help lead you toward a flea solution.


If your pet has fleas, you have fleas – many you can't even see. But stopping an infestation doesn't stop with your pet. Fleas and flea eggs waiting to hatch could be hiding in your carpet, floor crevices, patio and landscaping. The Fleaction Plan is here to help show you how to stop a flea infestation: Fight fleas from fur to fence by treating your pet, home and yard.

Flea infestation on dog and cat

Fur first.

  • The first step toward a flea solution is to treat your pet. And if you have more than one, treat them all. In an infestation, if one pet in your home has fleas, assume they all have fleas. The Fleaction Plan recommends treating dogs with fast-acting oral advantus® to start killing fleas within the hour, or using Advantage® Treatment Shampoo or Advantage® Treatment Spray on your cats and dogs to help rid them of fleas. You can pair our treatment with a flea comb to make it easier to get dead fleas out of their fur, too. But the Fleaction Plan doesn't stop at treating your pet.

Kill fleas in hard-to-reach places with Advantage® Household Spot & Crevice Spray or use Advantage® Household Fogger to kill adult fleas and flea eggs for seven months.

Flea infestation in yard

Prevail over your perimeter.

  • Every yard is vulnerable to fleas, which means your pet and home are, too. Wildlife and other people's pets can drop flea eggs in your yard as they pass through. And those flea eggs like to develop into adult fleas in your yard's shady areas where they wait to hop on a passing pet or person. Keeping it tidy can keep fleas from sticking around — mow the lawn, prune foliage and clean up any waste. As the third step toward your flea solution, the Fleaction Plan offers Advantage® Yard & Premise Spray. Treat along fence lines, under trees and around door frames in those shady areas to kill fleas developing in your yard.
