Getting rid of fleas is a combination effort including treating pets to kill fleas on them as well as killing fleas outdoors and indoors with products that kill adults and contains a growth regulator that prevents eggs and larvae from developing. These must all be done together in order to shut down the cycle of the insects. The Bayer product is registered for use outdoors but you'll also need to treat indoors and treat your pom, as well. Some products to use indoors include Bio Flea Halt, and Fleatrol. It takes about 2 weeks before you will see results. Best wishes with your eradication project!
