I moved into a house several years ago that had a major flea infestation. I live out in the country but my yard is fenced. I have four dogs that stay covered in fleas. Frontline doesn’t touch this problem. I buy permethrin at Tractor Supply to dip them in. I spray the yard with any and everything. Its better but still really bad. I need Industrial strength bad stuff to kill these things. I don’t care if it kills the grass just not all the trees. Its heavily shaded which makes it worse. Sulphur helps but I would really like a remedy. Any suggestions?
We have a flea problem in our basement for about 3 months. This is the 2nd time we bombed the basement. We have no problem in the house. Only the basement. We do have a cat, but she is treated and we no longer allow her in the basement. We had an old well in the basement, and left it open for about 1 month to repair cracks because it leaked. But this home has been hooked up to city water for years. We have been buying HOT SHOT spray and 2 kinds of bombs-hot shot and raid. Shouldn’t this been good enough by this time?
We hаvе а nеvеr еndіng flea infestation thаt ѕееmѕ tо bе worse іn оur living room. Evеrу time wе trу tо watch tv оnе оf uѕ wіll gеt а flea оn them. Thіѕ hаѕ bееn gоіng оn fоr months now. I hаvе sprayed ѕеvеrаl times аnd thе dog doesn’t show аnуthіng оn іt but wе ѕееm tо find them. Whеrе аrе thеу coming frоm аnd whаt саn I use? Thе spray I’ve bееn uѕіng іѕ аn organic orange scented, natural spray thаt ѕееmѕ tо work whеn уоu spray live fleas but thеу kеер coming back. I lіkе іt but it’s јuѕt nоt strong еnоugh anymore. Whаt саn wе uѕе thаt won’t bе а danger tо mе оr thе kids?
Hey, i dont know if this site is still active but im really desperate for flea advice.
We just moved into a rental property where the previous owners had had pets and when we moved in we found that there was a bad flea infestation. The main living room is carpeted but the bedrooms are hardwood. We tried simply flea bombing the whole carpeted area but as expected from reading this sites articles they returned worse than ever within 3 days.
Hi, I found your website this week and its been a life saver. So our cat had fleas and probably had them for a good while before we noticed. Our house got infested. I was 9 months pregnant at the time and started to get bitten on the 4th Dec 2011. Only realized we had a flea problem on the 31st dec 2012. I got cat treated with Frontline and vet gave me spray for the house. One week later I’m still getting bitten and went into hospital to have baby so had to put the cat in the kennels. Long story short, i got rid of mattresses in spare rooms (where cat spent most of her time asleep) and got exterminator out on the 27th Jan 2012 when i got home from hospital. The cat is now living in my mams house ( I know from reading your articles it would have been better to have her still in the house but she is gone now). I had been hoovering every day and as its a Dyson hoover i cannot remove any bags so have put flea collar in the cylinder of the hoover and empty it into black bag and throw away. I was still getting bitten (I’m the only one in house getting bites). Exterminator had to come 4 times, the last being yesterday. I found dead flea on my mattress and a dead flea under the sofa. Its so long going on I don’t know how much more I can take. Exterminator told me not to hoover again now for 5 days to let the spray settle but that contradicts what you are saying to keep hoovering. What would you advise? Thanks so much, I love your flea traps – can i order them here in Ireland??
