Hi, Sorry to take up your time when you have produced such great articles already. I think I have been reading and researching too much, so now I feel overwhelmed. Please tell me exactly what I should buy. I understand we need to treat each stage of the flea cycle. We live in the Florida Keys and I cannot control the environment as far as the wild cats that are so prevalent and coming through the yard. We have a 10-12lb Pom mix that uses the yard of course to do his business. I have products from the vet to take care of him. Orkin just treated the house and barrier on the outside. We washed bedding in hot water. I understand we need to vacuum regularly. Here are my questions. 1) What do I buy to treat the flea cycle inside the house and in the yard? 2) Can I use anything on the furniture? 3) Do You carry everything I need including a sprayer to hook up to the hose? 4) Do I need to use protective devices when applying? Please help. We live with my dad at the moment and his wife is not thrilled about the dog. Thanks, Cindi
If you read through our FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll see we have all kinds of products listed. But since you’ve had a recent treatment done, I would suggest you go with the ONCE A YEAR FLEA TREATMENT and some FLEA TRAPS inside the home.
For the furniture, you can apply some PRECOR 2000 lightly to exposed surfaces but don’t forget to treat under the cushions and the under siding as well.
In general, no protective equipment is required. But I do recommend using LATEX GLOVES when spraying which will eliminate any dermal exposure. I also recommend viewing the “safety videos” which are on every product page that has a product for which some safety measures should be taken. These video’s are quite informative and cover all areas you need to be concerned about.
Here are direct links to the information and products listed above:
