Q. I assume my cat has flea eggs. Tiny white sand like on bedding. I've bathed him but cannot get rid of!! Always use monthly drops on hm.
A. If you can, wash the bed in the hottest water temperature allowable, then toss it in the dryer. You should vacuum everywhere he has been and toss the bag immediately afterwards. You can also use an area treatment such as Knockout ES to control fleas, eggs and larvae in the environment. Food Grade diatomaceous earth can be a natural and effective method of flea control if you live in a low humidity area. Sprinkle a fine layer wherever you see fleas or eggs. Leave for 12 hours then vacuum up the excess. Do this once a week for 4 weeks to greatly reduce or eliminate fleas. The DE is a desiccant which will dehydrate the fleas and kill them. If you use Frontline and purchased it from your veterinarian, contact Merial and take advantage of their 'Guarantee'. The 1-800 number or website can be found on the package.
