  • Fleas are a nightmare to get rid of!!! My mom is going through it now and she doesn't even have a pet!! Follow the directions exactly, it will end eventually!! Good luck.

  • While fleas prefer pets, they are not above munching on people, so it is not really true if you don't have a pet you can't have fleas. The fleas aren't even on your pets unless they're feeding and if they're not on your pets, then they're in your carpets & cushions while they wait for their next meal to pass by, be it 4-legged or 3. Our next door neighbor had a horrible problem with fleas and every morning they'd wake up with flea bites until they finally got the problem under control and they didn't have any pets either.

  • fleas are a pain. my son and my hubby are getting bit up. i sprayed with something extra under our beds and dressers so i am praying that will work so i dont have to move them. i found another on my cat and i bathed him 3 times 2 weeks ago and again the other night when having the house sprayed and i also put some stuff on the back of their necks. geez go away already fleas.
