  • I had a problem like that but it was with my cats and I gave them a bath with flea/ tick remover shampoo then got a flea/ tick spray from target it was like 7 dollars and put on the frontline flea remover on them and they were gone within a couple of days.

  • Bombing your house is the best way to do it.

  • If you get a flea collar from the store and cut it into pieces put it in your vaccumme bag and then suck them up it will kill them in the bag so that they can't get out or escape when you empty the bag.

    The fleas are bad around here this year so good luck! I used that trick, a flea spray and the frontline to get rid of mine and this is the first time we have ever had a problem!!!

  • Go to Walmart, or the Dollar Store and buy the flea spray in a white spray bottle. I works well and kills the eggs that fleas lay.

  • Okay here we go...I had the same problem. You have to declare war on the fleas. First vacuum the house well, every crack and crevice then immediately throw the bag out. Then get a flea bomb or spray and spray the house well. Get some stuff from Lowes for killing fleas outside and sprinkle it everywhere, even in the direct sun...they can survive the sun, cold and wet! After all that is done you have to vacuum everyday for a few days and possibly respray. This is because during the flea life it is first worm like, which will be killed by the spray. However after a day or so they spin a cocoon around themself which cannot be penetrated by anything. So, you have to vacuum and spray for about a week afterwards to insure you got all the freshly hatched ones! Hope this helps!! Good Luck!
