|What really works in treating the environment (furniture, floors, etc) is a flea spray with a growth-hormone regulator in it. Adams, Zodiac, etc. These sprays kill adult fleas, but also contain a chemical that inhibits growth and maturation in the larvae. Eggs will hatch (nothing kills eggs), but the larvae will not develop and will die. The sprays will usually says R-90 or something, meaning it lasts for 90 days. It usually only take 2 applications, along with regular vacuuming, to get rid of the fleas. It is not a bomb, where you have to leave the house for hours. You put your cats in another room, let the spray dry, let the cat out, then spray the room the cat was in.
I had a flea infestation years ago due to a foster kitten, and the spray was the only thing that worked on the house.
