We have virtually gotten rid of our fleas. First of all, get rid of your wall to wall carpets. Flea larvae live in soft fuzzy stuff that your pets sleep on. Wash that stuff frequently. We have used a product called Siphotrol (sp?). It is combination of a fast acting, quick to break down poison combined with a substance that lingers (and is not toxic to anything but fleas) that keeps the fleas from maturing. We are loathe to use poisons but this product only has to be used once or twice and your home will really be nearly flea free. Fleas are not just on your pet. They live in your carpet as juveniles. Occasionally our pets will get a flea from a neighbor dog. We may use Advantage then as a one time thing. I cannot stress cleanliness of your floors enough. It's worth it.
Good luck, Edy
