Rose Writes,

I DO NOT HAVE CARPET BUT CONTINUE TO HAVE FLEAS. I"VE FOGGED 3 times and sprayed my yard 4 days ago /...

I've been eating up and still continue to try to do my day to day stuff but continue to get bitten at my ankles. I need to do something quickly but not sure what that may be.

Answer:

Fogging should not be your only treatment for fleas indoors. When foggers are released they simply go straight up into the air and then straight down onto flat surfaces. Foggers do not penetrate into cracks and crevices where fleas develop. (They do help get rid of active adults that are exposed at the time of the treatment). Thoroughly vacuum every crack, crevice and surface in your home to get rid of flea eggs and larva and also to stimulate the pupa to emerge as adult fleas and contact any product you have put down.  Pay special attention to any area where your pets spend a lot of time. Fleas  usually do not develop out in the middle of bare floors, they develop in cracks, crevices, voids and in furniture and pet beds.  We recommend Ultracide for these areas; Ultracide has an insecticide to eliminate biting adults and an IGR that will disrupt the growth of developing fleas. You must also have pets treated with a residual flea product to help eliminate the adult fleas that never leave the animals coat.
