Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

Typically the entire affected area is treated at once, to prevent contamination - or spread from room to room.

If there are extenuating circumstances that do not allow for that, then we can do our best in treating the largest area at one time, but ideally the affected area is treated entirely at once.

Would it be more advisable to treat one room, vent, & place fish & cat inside while treating rest of house...or treat that room after rest of house?

I understand the "best" method is treating whole house, but the problem isn't extreme. I have been powder treating weekly, bathing & combing cat frequently & vaccuming daily. I am getting ready to start a child care home & can not have any more of these buggers.

Yes - if you can place them all in one small room and do the best of the house, that may be the best option.
