When fleas invade your home it can disrupt your entire life. It’s embarrassing, frustrating, and most of all annoying.

If you have pets though, fleas are just a fact of life. So when the worst does happen, and fleas infest your home, you’ll need a sure fire way to get rid of them fast. Here is our list for the best flea sprays of 2018.

#1  Zoecon Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray

Zoecon Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray is our #1 recommended flea spray. It sprays with a fine mist that dries quickly, leaving very little residue and most importantly has a very low odor. It contains Permethrin and Phenothrin to kill adult fleas fast. It also contains Precor IGR to prevent re-infestation for up to seven months. Nothing else we tried worked for as long and as well at the Zoecon Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray.

#2 Virbac Knockout E.S. Area Treatment Carpet Spray

Virbac Knowckout E.S. Area Treatment Carpet Spray comes in at our #2 recommended spray. We found this spray to be even better at initially killing the infestation, but found that it took a few more reapplications to fully kill it off. This spray has a much stronger odor than our #1 spray, but again, seems to be more powerful.

#3  Vet Kem Siphotrol Plus II Premise Pest Control Spray

Vet Kem Siphotrol Plus II Premise Pest Control Spray comes in at #3. It’s been around forever and has steadily been one of the best flea / pest control spray on the market.  It is extremely powerful and will usually only take 1 or 2 applications to completely rid the room of any sort of flea or pest infestation. It does have an extremely powerful odor, so if you do choose to use this spray, more than likely will need to close off room for a few hours and then let it ventilate before you’ll be able to spend significant time in the room again. This is a great spray, but the strong odor forces it into the #3 spot.


#4  Ultracide-flea Tick Professional Pest Control Product

The  Ultracide-flea Tick Professional Pest Control Product is our #4 spray. When testing this spray it took us 2 full on applications of the spray to completely get rid of the fleas. On our second try we steamed cleaned the carpets where we were applying the spray and that seemed to do the trick.  We found that while this spray doesn’t seem to be as powerful as the top 3 sprays, it did just as well in terms of killing the fleas & eggs on our 2nd application. 


#5  Raid Flea Killer for Home and Dogs

And last but not least is Raid Flea Killer for Home and Dogs. It was the best residential / consumer brand product that we tested and felt that it needed to be added to the list. The other sprays on this list are commercial grade, meaning they are all used by professionals, however they can be sometimes hard to find other than online. Sometimes when you’re in a pinch and need a spray quickly finding Raid at Walmart or a dollar store should do the trick. We had to reapply about 3 times in very heavy doses to fully rid the fleas to our satisfaction so we do recommend purchasing at least 3 bottles just to be sure. 

So there you have it! Our list of the best flea sprays of 2018. Let us know what you think in the comments!
