How do I get rid of fleas?

My apartment is covered in them and I do not have a pet. I have tried flea spray but that just seems to multiply them. Thank you for any advice.

  • We have had great success with Zodiac products; You can get them at PetSmart.  I would also contact your landlord and find out who in our apartment complex has pets. The fleas could be coming from them. I would let the landlord know you have pest problem.

  • Call Orkin or Terminix. It's the only way. You will have to vaccum several several times and make sure you take the bag outside to discard it. You have to kill the fleas and their eggs when the they hatch. GL
