flea control

Been treated four times by pest control company and still have a few. What should I do?

Treating fleas on tiled floors is actually very easy to do and to get positive results and with that being said, I’m unsure why you’re having this type of lingering problem. The reason why these areas are so easy to handle is because the flooring is a solid, impenetrable surface so there is no where for the fleas to hide. This means there is no way for them to avoid simple clean ups and direct treatments.

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!

Our indoor cats managed to get fleas. Not real bad. We believe we caught it early. We took all the steps necessary (washing everything, vacuuming, treating the carpets with sprays and an IGR, etc). We also treated the cats with Revolution. All except one that is…

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.

The fleas in our home only bite 1 person and it is really bad for her on her ankles and legs. Which does not make any sense thinking they would bite everyone else as well. What should I do and what should I be looking for?

The yard treatments you recommend; are they pet safe or will i have to keep my dog out of the yard for an extended period? Frontline, advantage and advantix only stay effective for about 1 week and then my dog is completely re-infested. I am at my wits end; any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks, Angela

We have a dog and had rented an apartment with carpet. We have been out of the apartment for a month. Our lease is up 7/9/2011. Since there has been no food source for the fleas should the apartment be considered free of fleas, eggs, etc. I am curious in case they want to charge me to do pest control for fleas.

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.

I just moved into a place that had 6 big dogs. Should I remove the carpets? My little dog is showing signs of getting bit by fleas.

I’m not sure what removing the carpets will do but if you’re interested in getting rid of the fleas, you’ll need to treat using one of the methods explained in our FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE. As you’ll learn, it only takes one flea to lay hundreds of eggs and your new rugs will be infested just like the existing ones if you don’t treat. That means your options are either leave the existing rugs and treat them or replace the existing rugs and treat the new ones before they get infested.
Based on these two scenarios, I suggest you install several FLEA TRAPS along with our ONCE A YEAR TREATMENT. In my experience, this has proven to be the most effective and easiest approach to most any flea problem that includes a house with rugs.
Here are direct links to the information and products listed above:

I live in Florida and “spring” arrived about a month and a half ago, along with a plethora of fleas! I have a cat and a dog and we live on an acre that is for the most part natural and wooded. Both pets are indoor and outdoor. My home has become recently flea infested. I must say I was happy to note on your website that I should let the pets roam inside since I had been making them stay unhappily outside all the time due to the fleas! Anyway, I also have tropical fish and am afraid to bomb or spray as a result. Also, I just got new stain-master carpet about a year ago and I am hesitant to use chemicals on it. I worry about residue on my beautiful carpet – the slimy feel of it on barefeet, that it will attract dirt and may damage the stain-master “finish” or whatever they do to make the carpet remarkably resistant to staining. What do you suggest?
