So, I recently moved out of the parents place, and into my own with the family :D took us a couple of weeks to move in (shifting stuff, building furniture bla bla bla) and anyway, we moved in properly about 10 days ago. Started off well, until I found I was being bitten! looking down at my leg, I found a flea chowing down like it was an episode of man vs food! Seems that the former tenants outdoor cat has left us a pack of presents somewhere in the downstairs area!!!
So, having bought some flea treatment I set about spraying the place and trying to vacuum and massacre the little sods! unfortunately, having a hardwood floor can make this rather difficult.
So at the start of the week, I had the council come in and gave the house a treatment. Carpeted area's sprayed down, and the skirting boards also where treat. Monday night was bliss, no bites, tuesday night, the Mrs found one, Wednesday I got one, now I am back to how I was before.
The Mrs keeps saying we expect to see some as they hatch, but I thought they should hatch, leave there eggs, walk on the treatment and die!!! not live for a little while, bite the hell out of me and then eventually, maybe die?
The worst bit is, now that we have had this treatment down, we need to avoid hoovering and mopping etc for about another week! so I cant even go for the old hoovering tactic to kill them!
Has anyone had any experiences with a formal pesticide being used and should the little sods still be making a meal out of me? or should I notice nothing?
