    Q
    What is your best product for both inside and outside for fleas? Do have three young children and two dogs.
    A
    Our Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Control Kit would be the best for treating fleas inside and outside of the home. All of the products should be applied when the children and pets are not in the area until the surfaces are completely dry and then they return. You should treat once every two weeks for flea treatments. Vacuum daily inside (even on hard surface floors) and mow lawn 1-2 days prior to first application.

    Q
    What are the best products to use for flea control?
    I need to find a DIY flea control that will kill & keep killing fleas, but not harm my little kids, cats, dogs, or birds. The fleas we have are pyrethrum-resistant and don't even stay away when I use daily CapStar treatments plus heavy doses of permethrin livestock-dip. They just won't stay away, they keep re-infesting our lawn, home, and animals.

    We have put together kits for your convenience. The Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit has everything you will need to do a complete treatment for fleas indoors and outdoors. It is recommended that you keep your pets and children out of the area until the product has dried completely. Once it has dried, it is safe for them to return to the area. Be sure to do treatments every 14 days. Indoors, you will need to vacuum daily in between treatments.

    Q
    How long does the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit last, and how many times would you have to use it through the year?
    I have inside and outside dogs, and I am having serious flea troubles. Nothing seems to help. I need to know how long this helps and for how long.
    A

    Indoor applications of the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit would need to be made every 14 days until complete eradication. Be sure to vacuum before the application and every day after that, as well as getting your pets treated the same day of the application. Outdoor treatments can be repeated on a monthly basis. How long this kit lasts will depend on the total treatment area that you have to treat. Each can of NyGuard Plus will treat up to 2,000 square feet. The Temprid SC and Archer IGR will treat at least 4,000 square feet outdoors.

    Q
    What is best flea treatment for a home with ONLY tiled floors; NO carpeting?
    We do have indoor cats so I need something safe as well. Also, something to treat our yard as we have a screened in porch that fleas keep inhabiting. Thanks.
    A

    We recommend the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit. When treating for fleas they will not normally be in areas where there is no carpeting as they have no areas to hide, harbor or lay eggs. You will need to wipe up the flim the PT Alpine left on the tile floor with a mop or soapy water and a towel to reduce the risk of slipping. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Does the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit kill on contact?
    A

    The insecticides in the Outdoor/Indoor Flea and Tick Kit will both kill adult stages of insects on contact and have residual effects once the products have dried as well. Please let us know if you have additional questions.

    Q
    Can I just use the Outdoor Flea and Tick Kit for indoor treatment?
    A

    The Cyzmic CS and Archer IGR included in the Outdoor Flea and Tick Kit are both labeled for indoor use, but can only be applied as a crack and crevice spray. Fleas like to harbor in carpeted areas, so the Cimexa Dust and PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol included in the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit will be a better choice because they can be broadcasted across carpeted and non-carpeted flooring.

    Q
    What kills dust mites that bite?
    A

    Dust mites can irritate your skin, but they do not bite you. We suggest you contact your Cooperative Extension Office to obtain a positive identification of the pest you are dealing with. We would be happy to recommend a product once you have an identification.
