A few months ago I was Very
surprised to find that my indoor only kitty had fleas! I never did see any around the house or jumping on us....I first noticed flea dirt in her fur.
I tried using Frontline first and didn't plan to treat the house since it didn't seem to be that bad....but...after a couple of treatments and still finding a few on her (combing) I switched to Advantage
and decided to do the house so I could be done with the problem for Zoe's sake.
At first I tried the "all natural" carpet powder.....don't waste your time or money...and it smelled horrible...
Then I did some research and found that Zodiac Flea Trol aerosol
canned for carpets and great reviews.http://www.epinions.com/reviews/Zodi..._Aerosol_Spray
I got some at Kroger and it was extremely easy to spray (it sprays upside down so it was really nice, don't get the pump though, that would leave things too wet.) it dried very quickly and had NO smell! I sprayed the floors, cushions, curtains, under the couches, etc.
I reapplied 10 days later per the instructions....and I vacuumed (canister vac and emptied outside) every day for a few weeks. (be sure to vacuum before you spray so the fleas are disturbed
)No more fleas.
We are very happy.
This all took me around 3 months. I wish I had used the Zodiac from the beginning...it might have been sooner.
Oh and I just put Zoe in a bathroom for about an hour after spraying so she wouldn't be right on it and she was fine.
