  • You have to bomb your house. They will live in the carpet. My sisters live in FL and it happens all the time.

  • Eeek! If you've seen 1 or 2 more will follow. Cheapest way is probably a fogger. I use diotomaceous earth around the perimeter of the house (especially downstairs) to kill critters. It's safe for kids and pets, too.

  • Wood shavings... cedar.

    They hate it. Put it around where your pets sleep.

  • Treat your pets, clean all the furniture and clothing, and bomb the crap out of your house. Also you might want to use some Sevin Dust or something around the outside of your house and in your yard.

  • Sprinkle table salt all over the place get a couple of the big things of it they will eat it and die from it. Then after a day or two run the vacuum and sweep it all up. The only downfall is you have to put it over everything like couch and chairs under the beds on the closet floors or the fleas will just hide from it.

  • You'll have to buy some foggers, they work really well, if you can't get rid of the fleas on your dog go to the vet they have a pill that works great!
