I have frontlined the cat, I have sprayed with a spray from the vets and they are still here. Arrrrrgh. I dont understand as we dont have carpets at all in the house. Are they on clothes, toys? I cant spray them with the spray so what now? They are really stressing me out. Hellp

They could be in clothes, curtains, rugs, soft toys - does the spray say you can't use it on that stuff? I think I'd be chucking out everything susceptible to infestation..

Spray says you cant use on them sad

How many are you still seeing? We used Indorex all over the house, on their website it says that fleas in the pupa stage won't be killed by the spray so when they hatch out you'll see them but they should die within 24hrs as the spray is still coating everything. After we did our big spray we saw 3 fleas and then none.

Fleas can hide in any cracks and crevices. We don't have carpets in our bedroom but we still had a bad infestation in there as the cat slept under our bed. We had to hoover everything, mattress, inside drawers and shelves, along the skirting boards, inside linen basket and, yes, we did spray all the soft toys too as well as the curtains.

Anything that couldn't be washed or sprayed was thrown out.

Are you sure? All the sprays I've used have been usable on soft furnishings etc
