Hey guys,

We got fleas!!!! We have 2 dogs and 1 cat. We live in a two story home with carpet and linoleum.. I used frontline on all 3 animals, bombed the house, wash the dogs 2/3 times a week flea comb them daily…and we still have fleas. I also treated the yard 2x and washed their bedding and vacuumed a lot. I need you to hook me up with what I need to get rid of them…thanks.

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??

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?

I’ve got flea bits all over my legs. They started biting two days ago and I’ve probably been bit 30-40 times. I’ve killed 10-20 fleas but I think I’m loosing the war. I want to get some of the inside Flea Granules but I’m afraid they won’t act fast enough to keep me from being eaten alive. What else can I do?

I’ve had fleas in the yard late in the summer. But this year I’ve seen some now, in the spring? Is it possible they could be active now?

Fleas can be active pretty much anytime. It is true that outside, in the yard, they will go dormant when local temperatures get cool. But in the house they can live quite comfortably all year long. And since so many people have pets, fleas can prosper in someone elses house and be brought to the work place where other people can pick them up. For this reason it’s smart to be aware of the local flea status if you are a pet owner and have had flea infestations in the past as our on line flea control article explains.
