I checked the tags and didn't see anything about this, so I thought I'd turn to ya'll for some advice. I've done some Google-based research, but I don't know how much is applicable to pest control down in this climate.
I have a dog who has fleas. She's been given Frontline Plus for a couple of months now, but it has not deterred the flea population from continuing to grow on her body. I've treated my house with boric acid and sprayed my furniture with flea spray. I've also used clove and peppermint oil on her for fast-acting flea death.
She still has fleas. Today I gave her Capstar, and it worked beautifully; however, it's not a long-term solution for flea control.
I've heard fleas can build up a resistance to different medications-- is anyone experiencing the same problems with Frontline? (Yes, I've been applying it directly to her skin and waiting to bathe her for a week after. I know it works by killing fleas after they bite the dog, and I expect to see a few, but she still has quite a few. Capstar knocked about 25 off of her today.)
What other flea prevention and control do you use that works? I'm thinking about trying Advantage or Program, but I don't want to run into the same results.
