|Hey everyone! We're having the most awful time with fleas lately and I really need some help getting rid of them. I've tried everything that I can think of and its just not working too well.
We live in a really rural area, so I don't think we'll ever be free of fleas in the yard. But now the big issue is that they're in our house. I bought some spray to put on the carpet, but I don't think there's any way that I'll be able to get all the nooks and crannies of our house where the fleas can hide. I'm thinking of getting a fogger, but I don't know much about them. I know they're generally nasty things, but I'm really getting desperate. Has anyone used a fogger to get rid of an infestation before? Any recommendations for a good one?
And then there's Snick and Ava. I have piles of different products that I've tried on them to repel the fleas. Ava has reactions to everything that I've tried except for Sentry Naturals, but that doesn't work for very long. Snickers, on the other hand, doesn't have any issues with the different flea preventatives, but he's allergic to the fleas. The only issue is that the topicals just aren't working like they used to. I'm sure that I'm applying them right and all, but they're really having almost no effect this year. Capstar works, but doesn't do anything to actually repel the fleas after killing all the initial ones. I've thought about Comfortis, but I'm really wary of it since Ava reacted to the Capstar and, with a pill, there's no way I can just wash off the flea stuff if she has another reaction.
Anything else I can try? There's gotta be something....
