Q. Are your flea control products safe to use around a pregnant woman?
A.   We do not recommend using aerosols or sprays as people can react differently to chemicals. Pregnant women may be more sensitive to chemicals. If there are chemicals that need to be applied, we recommend vacating the area until the treatment is completely dried from treated areas.

Q. how to get rid of fleas in your house
Fleas were brought into the home in clothing and packages. the home affected has no animals. The person living in the home has the body metabolism where fleas are attracted and continue to torment the person. It is an ongoing problem for 2 1/2 years. Professional exterminating was done frequently and still being done regularly. Ultracide is used in the home by the resident in the interim. Presently, Precor was ordered to use in the interim, where fleas are suspected instead of the Ultracide that does not seem to last for too long. The fleas are a torment during sleep. The mattress was discarded last year and a new one purchased. The exterminators put a bedbug cover on the mattress and bed clothing is washed with hot water weekly. The new mattress is vacuumed regularly. Repellent is used at bedtime on the person affected. They are definitely confirmed as fleas and not any other insect. All of the clothing in the closets were dry cleaned and vacuuming done thoroughly daily for 5 days after professional extermination and frequently after that. The problem persists in spite of all measures, as mentioned, were taken. the person affected had cancer 2 1/2 yearS ago and is receiving Zometa 5 mg IV every 3 months, as an experimental research drug and the cancer is no longer present after a lumpectomy was performed. Chemotherapy followed by radiation was done 2 1/2 years ago after the surgery and therefore; the immune system is compromised. the person affected is susceptible for flea and mosquito bites for many years, since childhood. Have you any advice for this problem? The person affected wakes up with track marks on hands and arms an also round raised red bites. The person offering this complaint has no mental problems as may be suspected and it is frustrating when the exterminators don't get it. The exterminator was given a dead flea to take to the entomologist and he later said he lost it. Have you any further advice for this continued problem? Thank You
A.  

Because of the health concerns of the individual I would not be able to recommend chemicals for usage.

However I can suggest that you may want to try a different pest control company if the same company has been treating the place and the problem has been consistent for more than 2 years.

Also, if the building that the individual is currently residing in with the infestation has walls being shared with neighbors similar to apartments, condos, or hotels, it may be necessary to exterminate the whole floor since the problem evidently persists to come back time after time.

Q. Can't get rid of the fleas
We have a flea problem in our house. Our indoor cat has been on advantage for 3 months. We have all hardwood floors. One small area rug in the living room, which I vacuum daily. Our couches are leather. I'm considering using precor 2000 plus on all the floors. Is it safe to use on the leather couches? Also, I'm pregnant, so I'm concerned about using chemicals. Is it safe for me to administer these products?
A.   Indoor cat fleas can be difficult to get rid of if you do not keep with consistency and thoroughness of treatment. Since you have a lot of hardwood floors, it is difficult for them to hide and nest. It is important that you continue to vacuum and continue to keep up with cleaning the floors regularly. You can use Precor 2000, but we do not recommend using it on the surface. Instead, take the cushions off the couch and treat the edges of the cushion and the cushion frame. You should also treat the rug that you have with the Precor 2000 Plus. Wait until the area has completely dried before reentry. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
