PLEASE HELP*** Apartments & fleas!

Our apartment is upstairs in a 2 floor building. There are 4 apartments on each floor. 3 of my neighbors have dogs, we don't have any pets. I've found a few fleas on me either when I'm outside on the balcony or right when I come inside! I'm so grossed out, I had a bad experience with fleas from an old roommate & her cats a few years ago and it was horrible!

Living in an apartment and not being the origin of where they're coming from, I have no idea what to do. I was going to get some spray bombs, but they won't do any good when our neighbors have them too!

Any advice on what to do?

call the person who runs the apartments and tell them they need to do something about the flees.

This and continuously put that carpet flee treatment down until they deal with it.

FLEA  , not flee and i agree with the others to treat it as well as notify the landlord/owner about it.  Fleas can live outside w/o animals around as well.

Anytime  LOL   Flee is another word for leave or escape, Flea is the pesky insect.

Just call me the spelling monitor.

Haha, I knew the other meaning I was just so frustrated while typing the post (from my mobile) & my spell checker failed me so I didn't even notice! I'm usually the one frustrated by things like that... I am so ashamed!
