How to Get Rid of Fleas

I'm in Los Angeles, visiting my son.  He lives in a condo building in the heart of West Hollywood in a building with about 40 condos/tenants.  If you've ever visited West Hollywood you know it's a dog community. Almost everyone has a dog. 

In his condo building, on his floor, there are three cats and four dogs. Two of the tenants don't use a flea control product on their dogs.  One said their dog is allergic to the products and the other said her dog has never had a flea problem.  Well, one of them brought them the fleas in and the floor was completely infested with fleas.  The hallway and almost every condo.

Ironically the only people who didn't suffer were people who had animals that were using Merial Frontline Plus Flea and Tick Control for 45- to 88-Pound Dogs and Puppies, 6 Month.  Because the fleas that went into their condos were killed by the repellent on their dogs.The rest of the tenants, my son included, were infested with fleas.

My son picked up  Hot Shot Indoor Insect Fogger to rid his condo of the fleas.  It turned out to be simple to use and very effective.  He used one application, as directed, and he was rid of fleas.  What a relief! 

It was unfortunate that he even had to do it, but it was great to know there's such a good product out there to solve the problem.
