Hi Natasha,
A few months ago we found a couple of fleas on our new puppy. We bought a spray with IGR and thoroughly cleaned & sprayed all areas in our apartment including dog bedding & kennel, carpets, our bedding, couches, etc. We also apply Vectra every month to our puppy. A few times since then we have found a random flea or two on her and now I have found 2 in the past couple of days. What should I do? Should I start from the beginning and clean & vacuum and then use a spray? Your page has been very helpful but I just want to be done with these things permanently. Please let me know what you think. Should we be washing all clothes of ours too or is that not necessary? Also, do you know how quickly the sprays work to kill the fleas? Thank you!
