Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So i just saw a flea on Khuno... i'm fairly confident his frontline will kill it, i just put another treatment on him as it was time. My question is..

What do you all do to prevent/treat fleas in the house? I have a small 1 bedroom apartment, so i want to make sure my apartment doesn't get infested with fleas, even though khuno should be fine with his meds, I don't want to be bothered by fleas haha.

thanks all!

We spray our house with an IGR or Insect Growth Regulator. It's non toxic and safe to be used around children and pets. I use a product called Nylar.

I'm just going to tag along here with my question.

My parents are out of town for a month and their house has fleas. I just sprinkled a thin layer of diatomaceous earth around their house. The store I bought it from said to keep the stuff on the floors for 3 days, then vacuum up, and then repeat 7 days later to make sure you get any newly hatched fleas. Since no one is going to be there anyway, do I really need to vacuum up the stuff after 3 days or can I just leave it down for the whole month and vacuum it then and not have to repeat?

I would vacuum it. Vacuuming regularly helps to keep the flea population down, because their eggs are usually in the carpet or any cracks in the floor.

Plus if the vac is a bag type be sure to replace with a new bag, else the eggs hatch in the vac (it happens) and you re-infest the house again.

Also a heads up on flea killing "dust" products, I highly recommend wearing a dust mask when you vac it up as I didn't do so once and it knocked flat with one of the most severe sinus infections I ever had.

We use an organic pest control spray-you can find it at WalMart in the garden/bug area. It smells awesome and you can use it in the house and outside. Great stuff. We have had awesome results with you!
