I would check negative effects of RAID as this is the most effective way to cure fleas on soft surfaces. Otherwise, extensive vacuuming is a must. Unfortunately, by now, they're all over your house!

I would use one of those flea bombs. Just make sure you stay gone for several hours after to make sure the house airs out well before going back.

ur going to have to get flea power. we used sargents and you can get it at pets mart or walmart. it works like a charm. also you can use the raid flea spray, every day for a few weeks then have everything washed. and see if it worked. if all else fails bombing works the best as well as a pro carpet cleaner that deals with those issues. good luck ohh we have 3 cats and the first two things worked the best for us.

ohh if u use a flea bomb, cover everything and pack your kitchen in boxes so you dont have to wash and clean everything again.

My moms house had horrible fleas. They're definately fleas. I know what bed bugs look like from working at a nasty motel.
