Hi,
My cats also have problem with fleas. I've been bitten by the fleas also.
Have put spot on and shampoo the cats but still have fleas. Sent for grooming also cannot remove the fleas.
Went bathing, i rinsed with salt water. 2nd time with apple cider but still not solved.
Last sunday sent them for grooming at another store but still found a few fleas and notice my cats still scratching.

I also did misting for my house.Done by the pest buster. Before misting, i've also put salt on the carpet and vacuum and also baking soda but still not solve.

Friends, any idea to solve this fleas problem?

Thanks.

I don't have experience with spot on but if it doesn't kill fleas then it doesn't work. I have found (one so far) anti-flea & ticks drops that doesn't work.

For bath, sometime you'll need to bath your cats a couple of times to completely get rid all of the fleas. Since you already bath your cat a couple of times, usually this means there's infestation of fleas in your house or wherever your cats like to hangout. Do pest buster specialized in killing fleas too? Probably not.

Vacuum, baking soda & Diatomaceous Earth (DE) require time to take effect when there's already infestation going on. They will work. They work great for preventing fleas infestation though.

Try different drops, e.g. advantage anti-flea drops.

Will try revolution on my cats in 4 weeks time.

The pest buster said that they can kill the fleas and they'll do 2 times misting. The next misting is this saturday. Hopefully can kill the fleas.

looks like your place is having flea infestation.

first you have to read up and understand about flea life cycle.
then you will have some idea on how to control and prevent fleas.
it will save you $$$ without the need to call pest control ppl,

http://www.pet-informed-veterinary-advice-...life-cycle.html

http://www.petmd.com/dog/parasites/evr_mul...flea_life_cycle

http://fleascience.com/

Depend on the severity of the infestation, it will take time to bring it under control,

time means months, not just a few days.

Most important thing is pls do not over " bath " your cats and over dose them with pesticide!

Front line spot on Works!
You just need to understand how it works.
And some extra steps is needed to make it more effective.

The dosage is once a month, do not use other brand of poison on the cat during that period.
too much poison is always not good.

Assuming your hse is infested, meaning there are fleas in all stages everywhere,
eggs, larvae, cocoon, adults..
so to get rid of all these, takes time.

restrict your cat 100% indoor.
Give it a bath, apply spot on/spray.

U need to vacuum n clean the entire hse, esp the places that your cat likes to hang out,
if cat sleeps on ur bed, on furniture... then all those places can have eggs , cocoons, larvae..
cocoons can be dormant up to 1 year it seems, so yes.. very tough n time consuming.

( all these infos u can find online )

so imagine the amount of work that you need to do biggrin.gif
thts y some ppl keep cats strictly outdoor .. ( thts another story )

if u think pest control ppl charge alot,
the pesticide they use is always smelly.

if u want to DIY ,
u can go to hardware shop n buy these, mix n spray,
dont spray all over the floor, just along the walls n corners.
these pesticide have no odour, it can kill alot of other insects, termites, so be careful.
just like ridsect etc only, but these are more cost effective n have no smell + water based.
The active ingredient is the same for these 2, just that for these 2 labels, there is no odour.
keep it safe.

if the fleas do not bite you n other ppl at home, then u r lucky,
u can just use your cats as bait to kill all the fleas.
fleas need to be on your cats to feed.
it will take time.

back to " spot on" and other type of flea drops.

if ur cat is big, over 4 kg, it is less effective to use drops because,
you are instructed to drop the liquid behind the neck,
the poison is not able to spread to other parts of the cat effectively.

Fleas that likes to hang out around the backside, underbelly etc, wont' get in contact with the poison.
they wont get killed.

It is better to use frontline spray.
the spray poison concentration is way less than spot-on, so u need to use according to instruction.
and spray the entire body, ( minus the head ) be careful the eyes.

user posted image

wear surgical gloves, and spread the liquid all over the skin, and let it dry out.

even tho the instruction did not state this, but it is better to e-collar the cat first, and wait for several hours or
one whole day, to let it dry out, before removing the collar.

when u manage to bring it under control, then u can start explore the natural remedies to prevent fleas.

good luck thumbsup.gif

flea bite on human skin, leaves a dark spot when healed.... fair skin ppl take note...

this doc came out,.,

seems it is newly imported by rhone- ma

and the health ministry states that only can be used by registered vets..

https://www.aseanlip.com/assets/uploads/ase...a-Sdn.-Bhd..pdf


so i think the price will be pricey...

Adding an inguiry here as well...

Looking for a 2 storey mid-size Cat Cage say around 2.5 ft wide and maybe up to 4 feet or more in height... Prefer something nice instead of the current black powder coated/painted wire frame with wire frame as platform..
Seen some nice cage in the internet with nice plastic/metal platform and colored structure. but all seem overseas...
Anywhere in Kuala Lumpur (Klang Valley - PJ, Klang ) Pet shop that would have such cage/crate and wont cost a bomb?

affordable cage will be those wire type and powder coated and foldable.

next up is thicker poweder coat, thicker wire, foldable,

next up is non foldable , u need to screw or bolt on the frame.

the plastic platform, so far ive seen one type, they call it " full tray " cage.

or u can diy put ur own board, mdf board, card board, plastic board.

or mudah got one seller frm batu caves, his shop is near center point there,

his price is unbeatable really! thumbsup.gif
