I was wondering if you could tell me that if washing cloths and other bedding in just one cycle of hot water will kill fleas and eggs. Thank You.

It will. But if you review our FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn that in fact clothing is rarely if ever a place where one would have flea eggs laid. As our article explains, fleas want to live on their host. In most cases this will be a pet. But when local populations get large, there will usually be a problem in the home or surrounding yard as well. These local infestations will usually lead to people getting bit when walking around the premises. But will the fleas stay on these people and lay eggs? No.

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

Do you carry any non-toxic spray for fleas and their eggs?

We have some really low impact type sprays and treatment options that you might can call a non-toxic spray for fleas. Mind you these won’t work as quickly because they won’t be acutely toxic. But they will be equally if not better in the long run. As explained in our FLEA CONTROL article, breaking the flea cycle is paramount to long term flea control.

I have a wicked flea problem and would like to know if there are any home remedies that might get this problem under control. Last year I used some borax powder when I saw one and that seemed to cure it. this year I didn’t apply any till I was being bit and now the borax isn’t doing anything. Is there something else I can use that isn’t a spray?

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 used to get a product called Flea Terminator. It was a once a year flea control product that worked great. I would sprinkle it out onto my carpet, broom it in and get flea control for a year or more. I can’t seem to find the product locally anymore and was wondering if you knew where I might be able to get some?

I’ve heard about the once a year flea carpet treatment and I’m wondering if it really works. I see you sell this product; have you had good success with it?

We have been selling ONCE A YEAR TREATMENTS for over ten years and we have found it to work very well. This is probably because the flea granules get down to the bottom or nap of the carpeting where flea eggs and larvae seem to gravitate. The eggs and larvae die off by contact since the flea granules work as a drying agent and essentially dehydrates them before they can grow up to biting adults. By keeping the flea cycle in check, fleas are never able to get established in the carpeting which really makes flea control easy. As our on line Flea Control article explains, breaking the flea cycle is paramount when treating and it just seems like the once a year treatment does this the best.
