I used two Precor bombs and treated a week later with spray. Shut out pets from internal room. Still have fleas...

Answer:

When treating for fleas, vacuuming is the most important thing to do.  You should vacuum before you treat, and then vacuum after you treat every day for the next week.  Vacuuming pulls flea eggs to the surface as well as stimulates them to hatch sooner.  You should repeat this treatment exactly 14 days later, or 2 weeks, since this is how often flea eggs typically hatch.  You may have treated too soon if you only waited 1 week before your 2nd treatment.  Also, your pets need to be flea dipped and treated.  Typically most flea problems can be handled in 2 treatments, but this depends on how bad the problem is.  It is common to have to do 3 or 4 treatments (treating every 2 weeks) over 2 months for bad problems.
