Teeca The worst Flea job I ever had was a small rent house of a good customer. I opened the front door to be attack by fleas. Common sense told me to not enter the house. I went to the local supermarket and purchased some fog bombs. I threw two inside and came back later to throw more fog bombs in all the rooms and then left again. Then I was able to come back and do the job correctly with out getting bit. I charged accordingly. When dealing with Biting Stinging insects you need to use a fast knock down like Pyrethin and a little common sense. If you have to spray into the wind and get the drift on you to keep the critters off of you, so be it. Pyrethin is not real toxic to humans and better than getting eaten alive. Correct PPE is also a common sense thing. Duct Tapping your pants legs and long sleeve shirt is a simple way to keep them out of your shorts. A Tee Shirt placed over your head like a bandit so only your safety glasses are seen is a quick way to protect your head and neck. Granules do have a longer residual, because they also have very slow release. I would never try and do a flea job with granules unless it was a Golf Course Fairway cut 1/2 and no trees or shrubs. I will agree that Granules can help prevent Fleas but not control them after they are there. Yes I am posting this at ampeg76 expense and getting a good cry not laugh about now uninformed he is about his job. But if he or others learned something from this post then all should be forgiven. Unless someone wants to give me a knowledgeable argument about anything I have posted, I am done with this thread. I am not paid to educate the world. Dusty If I used White Out on this post your misinformation would not of been corrected either. Trust me, I ignore a lot of misinformation.
