How do I know if I need to use a lawn spray outside in addition to the flea and tick products I'm using inside my house?
A spray may be helpful if your dog doesn't go any further than your backyard, yet frequently comes back inside with fleas and ticks. People who live in warmer areas of the country also often find flea and tick lawn sprays and other outdoor flea control useful to get rid of fleas.

How often should I use lawn flea control?
Treatment with a spray should be repeated every 7 to 14 days. Check the label and follow the directions carefully.

Inside the house, how do I decide if I should use a flea and tick spray rather than a fogger?
Keep in mind that these products work differently. Before using a product such as the bioSpot Room Fogger, you will need to remove all pets, including birds and fish, from the building, and stay away for about 2 hours. When your return, you should wipe down all eating surfaces. With a spray you can reach under drapes and furniture, areas that a fogger can't get to. However, with a spray you must direct the product to each area you want to treat, while a fogger disperses the product by itself.
