Tell me how you got rid of fleas

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We first noticed them about a month ago.  I think they were already pretty bad.  Put Frontline on the cats right away, more laundry and more vacuuming.  It seemed a little better for about a week, but it wasn't long before it was obvious that it wasn't going away (or even getting better).  Last week we fogged the whole house, bathed the cats with flea shampoo, and got Vectra from the vet.  I did lots of laundry and vacuuming.  The cats are still scratching, I still see fleas, and my 4yo is still getting new bites.  What do I do next?  I'll be honest, with a 6.5yo, 4yo and 2mo, I'm not cleaning as well as I'd like, but I'm really trying and I thought all the chemical controls would be working a little better.  Please help!

I have baths with tea tree oil and vinegar and the spraying with a flea spray and vacuuming which has greatly reduced them and I've only seen 1 on our dog since. But I also know that bathing a cat is a challenge in itself.  So I'm curious as well as to what others might suggest...BUMP
