Kevin from Idabel, Ok writes,

Should I expect them to be gone instantly?

We have two cats, but they never go outdoors. This last week we suddenly had a house full of fleas. Followed the instructions for Tempo precisely just last night. Not only are they not gone, but they seem almost just as rampant. Shouldn't they be gone by now? Ideas, anyone? Thank you.


Tempo is a great product, but since you cannot apply as a broadcast, we do not necessarily recommend it for fleas. Please review our Flea control page. We recommend using our Indoor Flea Control kit. This kit contains two cans of Alpine Aerosol which is one of the safest professional grade flea sprays for use indoors and was recently classified as a reduced risk product by the EPA. It provides excellent control of fleas and contains an IGR as well, which prevents adult fleas from being able to lay eggs, eventually halting the flea reproductive cycle.  You'll also get two bottles of CimeXa Dust which is a safe, odorless, non-staining dust that is perfect for spreading on carpets, floor coverings, in cabinets, under furniture cushions, and other areas where fleas tend to harbor.  As fleas come into contact with CimeXa, the dust literally dries the fleas out causing eventual death.  These two products together create a powerful double punch providing excellent, safe and lasting indoor flea control.
