We recently bought and moved into a house that was infested with fleas. We have a dog which we treat with frontline. We have been vacuuming the house every day for 3 months now. In addition we have had a exterminator out to spray twice. I have also sprayed (peremthryn and precor) myself a couple times in the 3 month span. The problem has definitely gotten better and we thought we had finally rid the house of the issue. That was until we found a flea on our dog yesterday. This was the first one we have seen in 3 weeks. I gave him a capstar and washed all his bedding. Should I be concerned that we are still infested?
Fleas are persistent, nasty and tough to kill. Flea infestations can make people and pets miserable. If you’ve wondered how any insect could survive after all the spraying, cleaning and aerosol “bombing” you did ..READ MORE ON FLEA CONTROL..
I have stray cats living underneath the house and can’t get rid of them. Clearly, they have brought a flea infestation with them. I found a flea in my bed last night and am really freaked out. I sprayed last week and don’t know why I can’t get rid of them with hardwood floors and no pets. Do you have any suggestions? Do they live on the bed? How are they getting onto the bed? I thought they could only jump ankle high.
Hello. I’ve been getting bitten in my sleep for a week or so and assumed that fleas were living in my bed. After reading some of your questions, I’ve discovered that fleas don’t live in beds, only on hosts (such as a pet, not a human?) Well, since I started getting bitten I decided that my cats were no longer allowed in my bedroom, so a flea has no host to cling to. Also, our cats were treated for fleas not long ago. Could this be fleas or does it sound like something else? Definately not bed bugs as I’ve done thorough research on them and everything I’ve read cancels them out. Many Thanks.
Can you tell if bathing my dog in Dawn Dish soap can help with the fleas. My Vet told me to bath her in the dawn dish soap. I did that on Monday morning and checked last nite and this morning and have not see a flea on her belly. She also isn’t itching and biting now. She is allergic to the fleas. I have been to the Vets since June till now. She has been having the treatments every month, but it seems that the bath has helped. Is it my e imagination or is that true is does work?
Could you tell me where I can buy these flea traps? I live in southern California.

We have 10 cats in house which never go outside in the yard. We have a large screened in patio where they spend much of the day light hours. Several of these cats we are not able to handle or catch so brushing or washing is not possible for some of them. I realize the problem but am hopeful you and your products may be our answer. We vacuum and clean daily so are willing to do other things you may suggest.
I’m a real estate agent and commonly have to enter homes which have flea infestations. The crazy thing is most times I know about the problem ahead of time so I can try to protect myself. So far I’ve learned that really strong Deet will help keep them off me as will Permethrin. Do you offer these chemicals? I want to spray my lower legs or clothing before entering these flea infested homes so I don’t get bit. Is this what you would recommend?
