Not had to treat before but I would thought some kind of powder that is sprinkled down and them hoovered up after so long,or maybe there a spray.

When we had our kittens, we had to buy a hige spray can and spray all around each room near the skirting and corners. Make sure the windows are open and the cat/cats are out though !

Can't seem to edit my above post but just wanted to add that i don't rememebr what the spray is called but i would check with your vet what is best to use.

frontline, one dose on the cat and that lasts weeks. kills fleas immediately. any that hatch and jump back on cat, they die too.If the house has become infested and you want faster results you can get fleabombs, just pop it in the room, hit the button, shut door and get out for a hour or so. come back,hoover up. job done.

I had this before in a property I let out. I uses all the supermarket ones none worked. The best thing to do is ring the local council and they have a contractor to do it. it cost me about 20 quid ish and it got rid of them in one go.

Thing is with all the recent hot weather there has probably been a bit of a flea explosion. The sprays etc will all have an effect in time. But apparently its a fact that the vacumn cleaner has done more to reduce flea numbers than anything else. Cos it sucks up the eggs. (Was a 'fact' mentioned on Stephen Fry's QI)

I've bought some carpet powder and flea spray from the pet shop and just done the whole house, will wait a while before giving it a good vacum

I'll order some more spray online too, just in case i need it again, any recommendations?

yeah £58 does seem a bit pricey. Depends on how many home remidies you buy from supermarkets. How about trying the local pet shop or the local vet surgery they might have something stronger. Also when the company did mine they said you have to open the doors to every room a couple of times a day as the change in air pressure waks them up.

thought it was every 4 weeks?

how did you apply it? MUST be between the shoulder blades on the skin, NOT the fur.

Use a fog bomb and powder all the corners. Got an awful infestation a few years ago - we managed to bring them back from holiday and our poor cat paid the price. We got a couple of fog bombs, sprinkled the powder down all over and went out (with the cat) for most of the day. Once we vacuumed and aired the house - all was well again.

Frontline for the cat and acclaim flea spray for the house.

Cover furniture, fumigate your house just in case theres fleas hiding in places. Can a vet check if your cat if flea-free without charging you the earth?
