Jim, Happy New Year, sorry to hear about the fleas. When I bought this place out in Flatonia it was infested with fleas in both buildings. Fleas have a life cycle of 30 days I believe or something to that effect.

I started out dusting the area with “Sevin” dust its toxic to them but not to you, you can find it at any garden center, HD, Lowes, almost any hardware store. I put it in a coffee can and punched holes into the lid and shake it all over the area and leave it.

The next week I use a spray in a pump up sprayer, also get that concentrate from your garden supply or big box store. I used this http://happyjackinc.com/

You try to spray or dust once a week, for 30 days, to get the fleas and the unhatched eggs. Alternate between spray and dusting so the fleas don’t become immune to either.

Best of luck with em. I’m glad mine or outta the area for a while.

-- James
