Are fleas worse this year?

Our house is flea infested. We have been spraying.  Vacuuming everyday.  Washed everything, blankets and curtains.The cats(inside only) had dawn baths and flea drops on them. We have been sprinkling salt on the carpets. We are getting borax, baking soda and probably more salt today to sprinkle on the carpets. We have dawn traps and whenever a flea is on us we put it in the trap. We just can't seem to get a handle over these bloodsuckers. Are they just worse this year? We have even noticed some on us when we aren't at home, not sure if they were already on us or if they were jumping on us from being outside(other peoples yards)

Yes we ended up getting our inside cat the flea and tick treatment.  It has made a difference.  The ticks here are also bad enough that we check our kids daily for them.

Definitely,  We didn't have a very cold winter so less of them died.

Sorry, we moved away from flea country and I am happy, happy :)

Comfortis, a pill, will get you relief. Kills all within hours and any that bite, die.

Good luck! I hate those bastards with a passion!!

And yes, if the ground didn't freeze for long, they will be abundant, especially after a rain. Ticks too!

They're really bad here this year. I've never seen them so bad.
