My husband entered a home that was flea infested. Not knowing, got back into his car. As we were driving away I noticed them all over him. Before entering our own home, he stripped down and we threw out his clothes and shoes. So, What is the best way to kill the fleas inside the car? And should we treat our own home too?

Would a first frost kill off all fleas? We have a 10 year old cat that has never been outside. But we now have a gated backyard she will be able to go outside without any fear of losing her.

I have recently discovered fleas on my cats.  I was reading your very informative articles and saw that this product, Precor 2000, is helpful in getting rid of fleas in the house, carpets and on furniture.  However, I read that the active ingredient is permethrin, which is toxic to cats.  If I spray it in the house, can it hurt my cats?  If it will, what can I use to get rid of fleas in the house so that the cats won’t get re-infested?
Thanks :)
