persistent flea problem

0

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??
