The adult can’t lay eggs any further. Also the larvae stop at that cycle. But a careful notation can be given. Keep in mind that Nylar doesn’t kill adult fleas.

You can apply flea powder by sprinkling all over the carpet evenly. Sometimes powder don’t reach to the bottom of the carpet at that time I used comb to brush small sized carpet. It’ll help the powder to reach to the base. And I also used big broom for bigger carpet. After 1 day of applying any powder I vacuum the whole carpet thrice as I don’t leave any chance for any fleas on my carpet to live on.
