I have a home with 2 cats and they have fleas
Even though I use flea drops monthly since March. Have fogged with HotShot twice. Started using Suspend 1 1/2 weeks ago, sprayed the whole house (no carpets in home) the basement, attic, main living area and continue to spray every other day. I have been using flea shampoo and the flea spray product Petcor once a week, still I have fleas. HELP!! The fleas are less but not gone. The cats are being kept inside for a month now. I don't know what else to do
The main thing to know when dealing with fleas is that there is no overnight fix for them, it can take multiple applications to completely eliminate them sometimes 2-3 treatments or more. You also want to make sure that you are following the instructions on the product labels that you are using. Suspend SC is not labeled to be used anymore often than once every 21 days. Per the product label for indoor applications, you should also only apply as a coarse, low pressure crack and crevice spot treatment to problem areas and infested habitats. Do not treat entire floor, carpet or floor coverings. Do not apply as a space spray. Application to furniture should be restricted to areas where prolonged contact by humans will not occur. Care should be taken to limit spot treatment to pet beds and infested floor coverings. Suspend SC would not be a good choice for indoor flea control because it can not be used over carpeted areas, it must be kept to cracks and crevices only.
For indoors, we would highly recommend our Indoor Flea Kit. It is our most popular product for indoor flea control and is usually the final treatment that people end up using that works when they have tried everything else.
