First of all I am surprised that Frontline has not stopped obvious infestation. How long since you used it?
Fleas can get into furniture. So no carpets does not guarantee anything. You are going to have to either:
- do one of those tent fumigations...then keep working to control
- keep working.
The good thing is that in order to feed to breed , fleas are going to have to move out of areas that they have infested. So if you poison _around_ areas they infest, (such as furniture), they will die or at least be dying as they get out. Then if they get on your pets and meet more poison....
- persistence wins over perfection.
Nature just keeps plugging away. You need to keep plugging back. One battle does not win the war (etc etc )
I sense a bit of desperation, and I have been there. I am sure that what is being said is not helping, as this is going to be a big thing in your life for a while. But it can be done. However it has to be done with specific , reasoned steps. Panic (very understandable...been there done that) is NOT GOOD. Persistence Persistence Persistence.
OK. The space lawn around the pool will still harbour fleas and eggs. Not maybe as well, but still there. So any area the dogs frequent needs treatment with whatever you think will work. My HONEST opinion is that the nicer the treatment, the less likely it will succeed and the more often it needs to be applied. Residual poisons are not nice, but effective. I am not a devotee of the area bombing approach, but that has often cost me.
OK I have talked a lot. You are clearly not happy. I will leave it there until you reply, before I overwhelm you.
