Flea is an insect that has proved to be very annoying and disturbing especially on animals and)d humans, and for this reason it is important to treat or control them. The flea treatment is the process of or rather the procedures that are often involved in either the control or the process of getting rid of the flea on human or animal body. The procedures or rather the methods may treat both the itching that is often caused by the bites and may also remove and in most cases kill the flea themselves. The itching that is often caused by the bites can be treated or cured with the anti-itch creams, normally the antihistamines hydrocortisone has been proved to be effective for the itching. The modern methods of controlling flea or rather the modern methods of controlling the flea caused effects are in most cases approached using the IMP, which is an abbreviation that is often used to refer to the integrated management protocols, this is often done at the host level, for instance, the pest.
The integrated management protocols are achieved by targeting the parasite that is the flea, by at least targeting two different life stages and by also using two different molecules. This is made possible by using the adulticide to get rid of the flea and other insect development inhibitors like the lufenuron, or the insect growth regulators like the methoprene, this aids in the prevention of the development of immature stages. The flea adult, the flea larvae or even the flea egg can also be controlled using pest alongside all the type of medicine and methods that are mentioned above. The lufenuron is a preparation that often attacks the larva’s ability to produce chitin that is often necessary for the development of exoskeleton for the adults. The lufenuron is therefore not used to kill the flea, for caution reasons the flea medicine is too dangerous to both the human and other animals for instance the cat.
If in contact with the skin it is recommended and advisable to take off the cloth, or for the case of skin it should be rinsed. It is advisable to not only treat the areas if infestation but also its environment.
