Flea control products include products to kill adult fleas and pre-adult fleas. Pesticides kill adult fleas as they hatch from their protected pupae; insect growth regulators (IGR) prevent pre-adult fleas (eggs and larvae) from maturing past pupae stage.

Indoor flea prevention: Indoor flea problems require a combination of pesticide and IGR.
Smart pest control measures first target the immature stages of the insect's development. Using pesticides to kill adult fleas is important in many cases but should not be the main target in a professional IPM approach. Not only are there more immature fleas than adults but the adult flea can be more difficult to control than its immature eggs and larvae.
