Krisrivera Hey I also moved to Florida from NYC! I've been here 20 years. You can take me outta NY, but you can't take NY outta ME! Here, fleas (and heartworm) are a year round problem. It's TERRIBLE! What can you do? Suffer thru it...but what you use depends on how holistic you want to be. I prefer chemical free. I don't use Precor, Advantage/Revolution, etc. It's an individual choice. Just be aware that all those spot-ons are absorbed through your animals skin into their organs. (And into you and your kids organs as well - even if you wait a day after applying it to touch them. Up to 60% of ANYTHING we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream as well - which is why I don't use chemicals in my home. We vacuum (psychotically); use DE + table salt; cedarwood essential oil (on furniture, NOT animals), and float tealights in low, white bowls with water + dish soap to drown those little SOB's!!! It isn't an instant fix, but nothing is down here. And it's a lot safer all around.
