Hi Adam! This site is amazing! Like some people here, we moved into a house where the seller had cats. We don’t have any pets of our own and was mortified to discover flea bites on me after moving in. We flea bombed the house and called the exterminator a few days later after the seller promised to reimburse us. It’s been 6 days since treatment and although we thought we were out of the woods when we didn’t see any this weekend, we noticed a couple Monday (yesterday) and today. The exterminator is coming back this weekend. I know you said it could take up to eight weeks to totally eradicate the fleas, but do you think we need to schedule another exterminator session? Or should we just wait and see if we see any in another week or so? I was so glad to read your article that fleas can’t breed on human blood so my fears that each flea is reproducing dozens of eggs was at least alleviated.
How to Get Rid of Fleas - From House and Dogs and Cats
Today, in some regions, fleas have developed a resistance to these drugs. Personally, I do use Advantage only 1-2 times per year for my cats (since we have cat kennels outside), and I work to keep my house super clean year-round, regularly wash all bedding, feed them premium quality wet and dry food, and use a flea comb religiously. So far, this has worked for years—and no fleas. I am personally very concerned and cautious about using Advantage or Frontline or any chemical flea treatment, as they are insecticides that use harmful chemicals, and I have read the research about the severe and serious health risks associated with their use.
