I am currently struggling with an infestation of fleas in my apartment, and my two (completely indoor) cats are on treatment to get rid of the bugs on them. I have utilized several methods of ridding myself of the pests, including:
- Flea spray on carpets, furniture
- Flea bomb in all carpeted areas of apartment for 8+ hours while I was at work (cats were locked in non-carpeted bathroom with towels under the doors)
- Administered Capstar to both cats same day
- Flea combed both cats
For a bit I thought I had gotten rid of the fleas, but it seems like I wasn't that lucky. Both cats are fervently avoiding being on the carpets in the apartment. One will at least go between rooms, though she spends as little time on carpet as she can by sprinting over it and jumping up on other furniture. The other, though, refuses to leave the couch and kitchen counter entirely. It's bad enough that she is even using the couch to potty...
Does this mean I still have fleas even though I'm not seeing signs of them? What else can I do to get rid of this infestation? I already plan to set off bombs again this weekend, but I'm starting to get to my wits' end here... Any help is appreciated.
