nuking fleas out of our apartment
We think our kitten has fleas. We saw several fleas today--or it could have been the same flea--on our futon. Once we killed it, we haven't seen one since. To be on the safe side, we're planning to nuke our apartment with Raid flea spray. Has anyone used this before? I've read several good comments about it on epinions.com and other websites, but I want to see your opinion.
Also, we live in a one bedroom apartment and it's really not feasible to take our cats out. Will this plan work? We were planning on spraying the living room and kitchen area with the spray. Washing our clothes (any detergent you recommend?), vaccuming and all other tasks necessary to rid our apartment with fleas. While spraying the living room and kitchen area, we were planning to keep the cats in our bedroom--or the bathroom--for about an hour or so while the spray dries. Once it does, we'll spray the bedroom.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to clean our clothes? Our cats occassionally go to the closet. I'm afraid our clothes have all been infected with flea eggs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
our kitten wasn't on advantage b/c the spca said she was a bit too small and too young for the treatment. do you think it's a bad idea to give a 2 lb, 2 month old kitten advantage? (obviously, very little of it)
