How do you get rid of Fleas?

We noticed all of a sudden that there seems to be a flea infestation in our apt complex. They are all over the front and back porch and have made their way into DS's bedroom. We don't have pets. Any idea of how to get them out would be... a god send!

  • you could try to bomb but if you are in an apt it wouldnt really do any good if your neighbors dont trreat too. Maybe ask the apt to help get rid of them? Or just spray all your furniture and wash all sheets and carpets might help temporarily but like I said if they are in the neighbors apts too it wont help for long. GL

  • Oh man they are so hard to get rid of! I would definitely tell the owners or manager of the apt about it. They are required to take care of this themselves and or have the people who caused it to help in the matter. It is a health hazard to have fleas. Especially for kids. Stick to your guns. In the meantime, AK aries had good ideas. Good luck.

  • wash bedding blankets and rugs, shampoo your carpets..we had fleas from our pets and we got rid of them by doing that.
