TQC, I still have fleas. I treated all my cats with Frontline spray, and while they're not scratching as much as before, they still are scratching a couple times a day (I've not been bitten since one night a week and a half ago). I did a treatment of Diamataceous Earth on my carpets, bed, and upholstery, and I just read it's not as effective in humid climates (and I live in Houston, aka Humidcity). I washed all my bedding in hot water and ran it through the dryer. It's been a week. I'd flea bomb the place, but I live in an apartment and the vents between units are connected (so I can smell everything my neighbor cooks).|
What do I do? How long does it take for Frontline and Diamataceous Earth to work? Should I give the cats another treatment of Frontline spray (though I'm afraid that's too much chemical for them)? Should I do another treatment of Diamataceous Earth? Is there something else I can do that isn't a fuck ton of chemicals? I have some Sentry Natural Defense. Should I try that?
TL;DR: HELP ME KILL OFF THE FLEAS, OMFG.
