How can I prepare for a flea treatment?   Pick up clothes, shoes, toys and other items. Wash your pet’s bedding. Vacuum  furniture where your pet sleeps and around the house. Discard the vacuum bag after you are done. If the yard will be treated, be sure the grass is mowed.  It is normal to see fleas for a couple of weeks after your home has been treated.
