If you use Advantage every month, you wont need to kill the fleas in
your house. Advantage kills fleas on ferrets very quickly. When the
ferret walks around the house, the fleas in the carpets, etc, jump onto
the ferrets. Bingo! More dead fleas. Since you probably have flea eggs
and flea larvae in the house, it will take a while to kill them all that
way, but it will get it done.
