    Flea control takes forever regardless. The problem is the flea eggs laid in the carpet are very well protected. Treating one a week for 3-4 treatments usually does the trick if you do a good job. I've seen lots of professional chemicals fail at flea control, wouldn't bet my last dollar on a homemade remedy, but wouldn't rule it out either.

    What if you just removed the chain and let the tires down would that do.

    Solvent and enzyme cleaners kill fleas and the eggs they lay.

    Thats alot of extra chemistry to just kill fleas. Lay down some Borax in the carpet its a natural pesticide and wipe them all out. Allow to dwell for 48 hours and vacuum.
