Getting rid of fleas in the yard and the house
We don't have any pets, but our neighbors insist on letting their cats roam outside and feeding feral cats. These cats love to come lounge in our wood chips and under our deck.
Over the past week, my family has been getting eaten by fleas. We assumed that this was from being in the yard, but last night my toddler girl came out of her room complaining of itching. We were horrified to discover multiple fresh flea bits all over her torso. We stripped her bed, and will "bomb" the house with a flea killing agent that combines permethrin with methoprene (an insect growth regulator).
Question 1: is there anything more we should do to eradicate the flea infestation from our home?
Question 2: what is the best way to eliminate the flea infestation in our yard? I bought a permethrin spray, which we'll apply to the areas that we suspect are harboring these pests, but what else should we do?
