We have 2 little Chiquaquas and a neighborhood flea problem. We use frontline plus monthly. We sprayed the front yard, and used borax on the carpets and furniture. The dogs were itching 2 weeks after Frontline application and it states not to use sooner than 1 month. So we dipped them last night, and low and behold...I checked them this morning and there were a couple of fleas. They must be in the house. I know they are in other yards because the whole neighborhood has a flea problem, plus there are wild ducks that like to hang out in our yard that are probably infested with the little buggers. I also tryed a spray with essential oils and a couple drops of dawn (spraying the dogs each time they go outside). I would order some beneficial nematodes, but it is my understanding that they don't do well in temps above 80, or strong sunlight...well it's June in S. FL. I'm hesitant sprinkling the borax outside, and the essential oils don't seem to be working.
Can anyone think of anything that I'm missing? Or any suggestion... would be appreciated...Thanx
