I’m guessing our cat has had fleas since mid-July of this year. Never dealt with this in our lives, so we had no idea she had fleas for so long and was treated by our vet 2 months after (mid Sept.). By then, I’m sure we had many eggs, larva and pupae in our home. The vet treated her with Revolution and an exterminator was in our home at the same time we had the cat at the vet. He said he used Precor. The fleas were out of control, so 3 weeks later, we used a spray called Vet-Kem (this product is an IGR + adulticide, I believe) that we bought at the Vets.
We have been dealing with a flea problem with our small dog and in our house for over 3 weeks. We first discovered several fleas on her over three weeks ago – I can’t be quite sure how long she had them. We immediately gave our dog a bath in flea shampoo but still saw fleas return to her immediately. We haven’t dealt with this before so weren’t sure how to handle and thought that would be enough – boy we were wrong!
