I have used Ultracide for three weeks now, but I am still finding tiny fleas on my cat. What should I do?
We are vacuuming a few times per week, have applied Ultracide to all furniture, carpet, hardwood and drapes (home is mostly hardwood). Disposed of cat bedding. Cat (indoor animal) has been treated with Revolution three weeks ago. There are no visible fleas in the home, but the cat still has 15 or so tiny fleas each day when I use flea comb. What do I do next?
Ultracide should be used once every two weeks until you do not see fleas any longer. Light to moderate infestations will require at least 2 treatments and heavy infestations may require three treatments. The product sounds like it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do, as you are not finding the large adult fleas, only the very small juvenile fleas that are emerging from their cocoons. At this point, you should treat again (be sure to wait at least two weeks from the time of your last treatment) and keep up the vacuuming.
