Q. flea insect control
Having a recuring flea problem inside. Treat with spray bombs and they just keep coming back. What is the best treatment that you would recommend to break the adult/egg cycle ??
A.   We definitely recommend a product that has IGR mixed into already or have an IGR applied separately from a killing agent. Our Precor 2000 Plus aerosol spray and Ultracide aerosol spray both have IGR mixed in. If you are looking for a flea IGR, we recommend Precor, which was made specifically for fleas. Keep in mind that an IGR does not have a killing effect. Instead, it prohibits them from physically maturing so that they are ultimately unable to reproduce.

Q. how long can fleas live if they are not on a dog or cat
A.   Newly emerged adult fleas from the pupa stage can survive for 1-2 weeks without their first blood meal. If however, the newly hatched adults remain inside the pupal cocoon, they can remain dormant for several months or even up to 1 year or more.

Q. I have a flea problem that appears in the basement and comes from the outside. We have cats that go out; but I believe a crawl space at the end of the basement is a main source.
A.   For flea problems, we would recommend a combination of Archer IGR with Conquer. For heavier infestations the majority of the initial population can be knocked out by using Demize EC. However since Demize EC does not contain a residual effect you will need to follow up with using Conquer. Once the applied surfaces have been fully dried, it is safe for your cats to reoccupy the area.

Q. What is the best insecticide for getting rid of flea?.
Need to apply it indoors, including on carpet.
A.   If you have a large carpet area to treat for fleas we would definitely recommend Flea Stoppers. This is a safe product to use as broad cast treatment and contains the active ingredient Orthoboric Acid.

Q. Flea infestattion.
I have used Frontline for many years and was very successful in preventing my Brussels Griffon from getting fleas. Recently he developed a flea problem and his Vet thought he had possibly developed an immunity to Frontline and suggested I change to using Certifect, which I did. The flea problem persists, which leads us to believe that the dog has brought the fleas into our apartment and we need to have the apartment fumigated to resolve the problem. Of course, I do not see any eveidence of fleas in the apartment, but I understand that their existence would not be obvious to the naked eye. Question: Is there a product available that may provide a solution, rather than spending a great amount of money and inconvenience in having a professional fumigation?
A.   All of the professional grade pest control products here will provide a solution as long as you use it as labeled and apply it thoroughly, as well as follow the residual for follow up treatments. For flea control, you must also vacuum daily. We recommend products like the Precor line of flea control products as well as Zenprox. Use the fogger first as an initial treatment and follow up with a residual product like Zenprox mixed with the Precor IGR. If you need to treat an isolated and concentrated area of infestation, use the Precor 2000 Plus aerosol spray. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. flea treatment
Hi, I see you have several different items for fleas. For the past three summers, we have had problems with fleas (in the house)!! We have no indoor animals. I am the only one the fleas seem to like and I have very bad reaction to the bites. I am writing to ask you which of your products you think work best for INSIDE the house? I realize I should also treat outside, but I'm about to go crazy with being bit inside. It seems they always start in July. Thank you in advance for any info you can give me. I look forward to purchasing from you and being flea free!! (Hopefully??).
A.   We are sorry to hear about your flea problem. In your situation, we would recommend that you actually look into our Flea Indoor & Outdoor Control Kit, which will thoroughly treat both outside your house and inside for fleas.

If you would only like to treat indoors, we also have a basic flea control kit.

If would not like a kit, you want to at LEAST purchase an IGR (i.e. Gentrol) and a liquid/aerosol insecticide (i.e. CBD Force/Suspend SC). If you have any further questions or concerns, please call us at 1-800-788-4142.

Q. have 3 cats all with flees on advantage plus its not working any thing u would recommend
A.   Advantage Plus is not a product that we specialize in. You will have to contact your veterinary service for treating your cats. As for pest control products that you can spray on surfaces of the house, we recommend using Precor 2000 as a contact kill spray in isolated areas of infestation and Conquer Insecticide and Precor IGR in cracks and crevices along the baseboards and under or behind furniture. All treated areas must be completely dry before reentry and all labels must be thoroughly reviewed before the application of any pesticide.

Q. My cellar is concrete and I have tired everything to rid the basement of fleas and our living areas what can i do to rid the fleas
A.   For the basement and cellar area I would recommend using a product like Precor Fogger. This product contains an IGR to help prevent them from being able to reach a stage where they can continue to reproduce. If you have carpeting in other areas of the home I would recommend Flea Stoppers.

Q. Flea in backyard
I've been looking for an insecticide that I could use to control Fleas in my backyard as well as to my dogs. In your website, there are variety of products and I'm confuse to which one I should get. I appreciate it if you can help me. It would be a plus if that product can be use inside the house too.
A.  

If you are looking for indoor and outdoor control and also if you have a cat or a dog that is infested with fleas, out Flea Control Kit is made for you.

This kit will give you products that can be used inside and outside. Moreover, you can use it in crack and crevice, concentrated areas of infestation or in broad areas.
