Hello, we moved into an apartment that had fleas about 15 months ago. We quickly got rid of the fleas because we have no pets, but now I am constantly paranoid about getting fleas again. My question is- is it possible for fleas to survive in our clothes or other items that we may not have caught and how likely is it to get fleas without having pets? We have since moved, but now our new neighbors let their cats roam outside and they sometimes come in our yard. I am concerned about us bringing fleas into the house that the cats may have brought in the yard. Please put my fears to rest! Thank you!
What would you say is the best product to get rid of fleas in the back yard and house?
It would depend on the problem. If I was to see active fleas in the yard, I would consider this to be bad problem. In other words, if I were to walk casually through my property and get 1-5 fleas on me at most anytime of the day or night, this would be a really bad infestation that needs fast acting products applied. For a problem like this I’d apply the BIFEN GRANULES followed by CYONARA RTS over the top. I’d expect to spray with the Cyonara every 4-7 days and keep spraying until I was able to walk outside without seeing any. As our FLEA CONTROL article explains, pupae will be hatching for some time following the treatment which is why I would keep liquid spraying.
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
