Have 2 cats who go outside and kill mice, stupidly not defleaed them for ages. I got bites 3 weeks ago treated the cats with frontline and sprayed everywhere. We've just been away for 2 weeks (cats not in house). Last night I got at least 20 bites sat on the sofa and another 20 or so in bed. found 4 live fleas in the bed today. feel sick with it. yuk yuk. off to pets at home as soon as they open to get some more spray or a flea bomb. fortunately DD had not been bitten at all but I am covered in bites and even DH who never gets bitten has a few. Debating if to get rentokil in tomorrow when they are pen. Vet said frontline and spray would be enough. what do I do about the bedding? Fleas can't live in my clothes can they?
This a really common scenario as fleas need vibrations for them to hatch so a whole load have been waiting for you to come home. You need a flea spray that has a residual effect like Acclaim. All the bedding etc put in the washing machine and was at at least 40. Finally buy a flea collar and put it in your hover so it kills fleas as they are hovered up.
wash bedding at 60 or 90, if it were me i would bin it and buy some new (we had an infestations a few years ago, made me feel ill) flea bombs are good. cats should be ok if frontlined so its just the ones in the house.
