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.

We recently (July 18) had friends stay with us for a week. They brought their 5 healthy well cared for dogs. The dogs have been on Frontline since May. The day after they left, we found fleas on the sofa.We flea bombed 2 times. Now we are having problems in the bedroom where they slept with people getting bit on their legs.Vacuuming revealed fleas in the carpet. I am ordering your sticky traps and the powder. I am vacuuming daily. How did we get fleas? The animals did not show signs of fleas from their reports and they tell us they do not have fleas in their homes. Could they be carriers? The incubation period seems too short ( the day after they left) for the dogs to be a problem. I need to understand to prevent this from occurring again. Thanks!

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

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

I was going to order and make a combination spray Permethrin and Precor for flea control. I was going to use this for inside the house but I wanted to know if this mixture will also be effective/safe for the yard. Thanks.

I have a pet dog that seems to get one or two fleas every time he goes out in the yard. I don’t see any animals out there except some squirrels and cats that hang around the bird feeder. Could he be getting fleas from them?

I’ve got several dogs that roam through an area that’s about 1/2 acre. We had a bad flea and tick problem last year and I don’t want them around this season. What can I do now to stop them from infesting my yard?
