Spraying Frontline on Furniture?

I read that if you spray Frontline on furniture it helps kill fleas. Can you add water to the Frontline and spray it with a spray bottle?

I'm not sure what you mean about adding water to Frontline. They make a spray already but are you talking about the little vials that you apply to the animal? I wouldn't add water to either. I've never tried it so I can't say it wouldn't work but I suspect it wouldn't. Also, I don't think you'd do any good spraying furniture. There are room sprays that are very good and there are foggers that mean you don't have to spray the entire room by hand.

We had terrible flea problems indoors a couple years back when we had an indoor/outdoor cat. My aunt told me to get some wintergreen oil from the drug store and mix a couple tsp in a spray bottle of hot water.


I sprayed the couches, beds and carpets. It worked! The whole house had fresh "breath" too! Hope that helps. It's more people and pet friendly than some other options.

The latest word on frontline is that once it changed ownership, (I think target bought it), my vet said it is nearly worthless. The thing about that type of flea treatment is that, if it does work, it is because it is absorbed into the skin of the animal, so I don't think putting it on furniture would be much help. It may even stain, or cause irritation to those who touch it, even after it dries.

I have to disagree with Glenn's Mom. The frontline for furniture does work. It won't stain. I spray the sleeping area too. It works very well.


I have 4 "babies" inside and haven't had a major problem with fleas. When I find one on either of them, I start spraying.

I can't help but wonder about rforbes saying Frontline for furiture works and doesn't stain :-o It may work but those chemicals will stain certain fabrics :-( Any chemical as strong as Frontline even mixed with water will leave some sort of stain or residue on fabric and possibly cause some sort of skin problem for humans sitting on it with bare summertime thighs, hands or arms touching it and even the same touching and absorbing in the Winter :-(


There are lots of other organic non-lethal to pets or human remedies out there to control fleas that won't stain your furniture!

Try first bathing your pet with shampoo and rinsing well with vinegar and also clean your home with vinegar. You can lightly spray your sofa with a vinegar and water solution to deter the bugs and burn citronella candles inside and out to repel the fleas until they are under control.

Frontline and all similar products are very toxic to animals and humans. Please don't spray those anywhere! There are less toxic things you can use. Do please google this for info on toxic properties.

No matter what you choose to do, add to your method of control. Placing a cake pan with water and a few drops of dish detergent near the infestations. Place a small lamp by the cake pan. Turn on the light.


This is what happens. The fleas jump for the heat of the light and fall down into the water that has a film of soap. The fleas drown. It's too simple but it really works. It will take a lot of time to rid your home of fleas because the eggs continually hatch-- so use any method that is safe for animals and humans. Good luck

A much better alternative than using the frontline spray on furniture is just to sprinkle salt everywhere you see fleas. I do this under the sheets of the bed, on the carpets, etc. It dries out the fleas and their eggs thereby killing them.

Well I had 2 vials full of Ultra Guard flea provention (Topical) and I added them to a clean Empty spray bottle, then added 1 1/2 cups of water Per Tube ( 3 cups total) and it's for dogs 61 pounds up to 150 lbs. so once mixed I also added one small cap full of Apple Cyder Vinager (also flea repellent) and mixed really well. Then lightly sprayed each dog with 3 squirts at the MOST! And brushed it into their fur.. Also sprayed on Carpet, dog beds, furniture, and popular sleeping areas that I often see them in. So far (2 days later) I see 95% less Scratching and chewing on their bodies, no stains on fabrics, and no Oder from Mixture when being sprayed then or now. I sprayed door ways and any place any kind of fleas/bugs can get inside. It's amazing so far. Also great for one quick spray after they come in on hot summer days after rolling in long grass and other yards. I don't suggest spraying every day or every week. Maybe twice a month in all said areas including Dogs. Also a small flea collar on the pups will help if you don't have time to do what it takes to rid your animals of uncomfortably from fleas. Make sure they often see a Vet for a professional opinion.


Please keep your Pets Inside during hot days! Keep them out of Parked Cars while running errands, and make sure brushed often to rid old hair on dogs coat so they're cooler from excess fur. If outside MUST have constant cool water, food & Shelter. Also make sure collar isn't to tight.. I've seen some animals so much abused by the lack of Commen Sence!! But have saved many many by not sitting back but actually taking action! Save a innocent animals life if you see them in any conditions that you wouldn't put your own pets/children in!!!! Also make sure if your dog does stay outside that they have shade and plenty of room for exercise and to do what they want with food & cold water. God Bless all of the pet owners who actually look up smallest info about something to do with their pets. Caring & Love is the best thing to see being given to your pets.. Cats/Dogs/birds/etc! Be a good pet owner And help the pets who can't help themselves please. It may not mean anything to you but it will mean Everything & more to them. God Bless all you Pet Lovers!!!
