How long does it take to rid your home of fleas?

We used the Precor Plus fogger four days ago, and we are still seeing some adult fleas. We have been vacuuming 2-3 times a day since. Do we need to bomb again or does it take time for the product to work completely? We have a bad infestation.


It can take a few weeks to get rid of all of the fleas indoors. Foggers work very well to get rid of the adult fleas that are exposed at the time of the treatment, but they will not effect the adult fleas that are hidden away at the time of the treatment. Most infestations require a second treatment and severe infestation may even require a third treatment. Treatments should be applied at two week intervals. Vacuuming is vital to successful flea control but you seem to have that covered. Be sure to dispose of the vacuum contents in a sealed bag away from your home. All pets should be treated with a product that is labeled for flea control. Outdoor areas where pets spend time resting as well as moist shady areas should be treated with a product such as Tengard. Treating the yard will help you avoid re-infesting your home.
