There is a microscopic critter called a nemotode. You can spread it around your yard and it kills the fleas outside. A good friend of mine had a TERRIBLE flea problem in her yard and home. She bought nematodes and hasn't had the issue since. SWEARS by it. Click HERE for more information!

Bombs don't really help because the fleas are too small to be affected by it. We had a HUGE infestation about 1 1/2 years ago. We finally bough some spray for the carpet and vacuumed 3 times a day. Flea eggs can survive for up to 2 years dormant in carpet. When the conditions are right, they will hatch. Fleas love hot and humid weather, so it makes sense that you are having the problem when it gets hotter.
