flea problem with cat under front porch

I just finished watching your excellent video and reading your article about FLEAS! Oh my … they are persistent critters, aren’t they? Here’s my problem:

1 small dog who is primarily inside, but takes walks and goes out in the back yard 1 stray young cat who mostly lives under front porch (among leaves and other debris that have blown under there — not readily accessible — meaning under the porch AND the cat!

Indoors has been infested; dog is miserable; I’m miserable (tho’ not bitten) and have been vacuuming and spreading Diotamaceous Earth like a coke dealer!

What do you recommend for treating under the porch (I’d have to push something through the lattice)? (I’ll be treating the cat with Program as soon as it arrives).

Indoors: the bed and bedroom where dog sleeps (in my bed — yikes!) I’m thinking there could be flea larva in the underside of the mattress (?) There is no box spring, but the dog has always used the platform of the bed as a back scratcher. Have an old leather couch in living room which is no doubt harboring the buggers.

I’m freaking out here … and will appreciate any advice you can offer. I’m a pretty old woman without a lot of money, but if you think I can conquer this, I’ll do it! Are your products really safe for cats who groom themselves so much? Thank you in advance for your help.

There is no doubt our products can solve the problem. For under the porch, use the DE supply you’ve been applying inside the home. If you don’t have an applicator of some kind, get a PUMP DUSTER that will enable you to get it under there with much deeper penetration.


For inside, go with the ONCE A YEAR GRANULES and FLEA TRAPS. This will prove a lot more effective in the long run compared to the DE.

Regarding contact with either product; once applied the materials should be so sparse over the treated area that they won’t pose a hazard to people or pets. This means they’ll be fine even if they lick themselves.
