This year, the fleas are worse than ever. We use a topical on our 5 indoor cats. Advantage II no longer gets the job done, even applying it every two weeks. We just finished up the second Alpine treatment two days ago. We used it in combination with our regular Talstar/Nygaurd (for cracks and crevices). We treated our cats with Cheristin. We believe we are flea-free. What we liked: - Can be sprayed on carpets, couches, and, most importantly, 100 year old hard wood floors with gaps between the boards. - Convenient to apply, with no mixing required. - It worked. What we didn't like: - It comes out too fast. I found that it is best applied in bursts instead of a steady stream. I ended up using 3 bottles for two treatments of our 1900 sq ft house. - It foams at the tip, causing an uneven spray. Wipe the tip down every dozen bursts or so. - If you don't clean the tip, it spits foam onto the surface you are spraying, causing drying to take longer than necessary. - Must be sprayed in a downward direction, which made it difficult to get under my clawfoot bathtub. What to keep in mind: - When spraying couches, curtains, etc., the square footage adds up. Just order an extra can. - Vacuum. We vacuumed the entire house every day for two weeks, and are continuing every other day after the second treatment. Otherwise you might as well just throw your money away. Overall, we are satisfied with Alpine, and will use it again if we have another outbreak.
