Quick fix

Find a cat flea spray that contains pyrethrins as an active ingredient. Hartz Mountain did have one such available just about every where. Read the label to be sure. You can also find it as an active ingredient in dairy parlor sprays. Aromatic cedar chips from a pet shop can help as a deterent for the adult moth.


try Sevin Dust (carbaryl)

Get the JEWELED FLEA COLLARS

Sorry, Marty, I couldn't leave it alone! I use to tape up cat flea medallions under the kitchen cabinets to ward off cereal beetles, millers and evil spirits. I guess it was just the idea of biscuits and maggots that bothered me. If the idea of a visible flea collar bothers one, a feller could probably take out a chunk of plywood and foam from the backboard and make a cubby hole. If a feller made a big enough cubby hole, he could probably fill it with aromatic cedar and staple a screen to retain. Gary Bowen's head hanger system could provide an air space.


What about Cedar Guard

What about useing cedar Guard in a sray bottle. Spray down pritty heavy and clean up the mounts after the moths are gone. Chris
