  3. 3

    Keep your pet indoors as much as possible, especially during the height of flea season.

    Purchase an herbal flea collar for your pet. Never use flea collars on young kittens or puppies. Follow the instructions carefully.

    Vacuum daily, including furniture, the car or anywhere else your pet spends time.

  6. 6

    Wash your pet's bedding in hot water at least once a week. Wash your own bedding as well if your pet gets comfortable on your bed.
