belinda after thoroughly steam cleaning the carpets Throw salt down in them. I know it sounds weird, but it's a diaretic (sp?) and dries those bad boys up when they hatch.

The salt should just fall into the carpet though - so you wouldn't feel it ... just take a broom or a brush and move the carpet threads so the salt isn't sitting on top, but falls towards the mat - that's where most of the eggs and larvae is anyway.

Would anything still be alive after steam cleaning?
A diuretic means that it makes the body lose fluids. Caffeine and alcohol are diuretics for example. I would imagine salt would burn the larvae to death when they hatched as sodium chloride does a good job of that.
Ever pour it on a snail or slug? Not pretty.

Eggs aren't affected by steam cleaning.

They are as tough as cockroaches. LOL.

I guess the steam is not as hot as I thought then.

And some diatomaceous earth for the yard. Its a powder that abrades their little exoskeletons away. Doesn't harm doggies, though.

I don't think it actually gets into the bloodstream. Someone else would know better than me but I would assume it gets into the skin and somehow spreads that way.

The big thing to remember is that the entire flea lifecycle can last up to 6 months, and the residual fleas you are seeing, are the pupae that are hatching. Pupae can live dormant in the environment for up to 6 months before hatching. There is NO product on the market that kills flea pupae unfortunately. Frontline Plus kills 3 out of 4 lifestages (Adults, Eggs, and Larvae). Advantage only kills adult fleas, Advantix kills adult fleas and eggs, Sentinel only sterilizes flea eggs. There is another product that has been introduced recently called Vectra 3D, and it also kills adults, eggs, and larvae.

If you are having a very serious flea problem you can safely treat your dog with Frontline Plus once every 2 weeks for a maximum of 3 treatments. You may also try a product called Capstar, which kills all fleas on the pet within 30 minutes, but does not prevent them from jumping back on...

I know that this years seems to have been quite a bit worse for fleas, and I think it may be due to the mild winter that we had previously. I live in southern TN and I treat every one of my dogs, and all 3 of my cats year-round with Frontline Plus. I am too scared to risk getting a flea problem, it would cost me a fortune to treat it!

Oh, and Frontline Plus does not soak into the bloodstream. It is transported on the dogs through the sebaceous glands of their skin. It can also still be effective after the hair shaft falls off the dog as a preventative to fleas on the ground. Who knew my dog hair bunnies could be an effective pest contol tool?!?

I hope this helps you...

Don't the flea medicines work transdermally much like Nicoderm does to quit smoking in people?
I assumed this is how they work and if they do then they do make it into the bloodstream through the skin.

I know beautyNut was having the same problem with frontline. But I think like most people said if your dog comes into contact with other animals carrying fleas, or they are still in your house, it will not work. Another option I know most people don't think about is to spray your back yard if possible. I use a pet safe insecticide to spray in the back yard and Kaiser never has fleas, I haven't used frontline in years. LOL

By the by...cute new pic NEELA lol I just saw

Good tips in here, especially the one about the salt. I'm going to try that. We are going to bomb first, then probably shampoo the carpets. I know if they are in the house, they can't be bad because I've had bad fleas in a house before and when you walked into a room the little suckers would hop on your socks. Nothing like that so far, just on the dogs.
