I thought I got rid of the fleas my dog brought into the house. But now I notice them again biting me. How am I going to get rid of these darn things? Seems everytime he goes out more come back in with him.

I had a terrible time with fleas a couple of years ago, and finally had to buy an insecticide in powder form to work into the carpet, I'm sure it wasn't good for any of us but it was the only way to get rid of them. I now treat the dog and cat each month to keep them away. One nice thing it did was I've had very few other crawling insects in the house since then, but I guess that means it's still poison.

You need to place flea bombs in your house when you can plan to be out of your house for a couple hours and you can go to the feed store and buy some stuff to mix with water and spray your yard. This is what I had to do last year.

I was hoping to avoid a flea bomb. Last year we had a problem with the fleas coming in. We live next door to a big field so theres plenty of fleas in there. So we had to bomb. That is just such a mess and you have to cover everything. I hope I dont have to do that again.

I know what you mean but that was our last choice. We just had to make sure to spray our yard also cuz they were so bad that they kept coming back in.

Try this home remedy, put some lamps on the floor in several locations tonight take the shades off. Put some water in a bowl with some dawn dish detergent in it turn the lamps on and all the other lights off . This might have to be done more than one time. See if that helps. And use dawn dish detergent to bathe your pet in that will also get fleas off them too.

Make sure you do alot of vaccuming for one thing. I think fleas are bad and you really shouldnt have to put up with them in the house. My dog tends to bring them in also during the summer months and I really dont like them. I try to use frontline whenever possible for flea treatment.

You need to get some kind of flea treatment like Frontline to treat him so they don't get on him, and they die when they bite.

What kind of flea control do you have on your dog? I use either frontline plus or revolution. I have a husky and three cats so I use these products on all my pets. I have to say that this year I will be dusting the yard to get rid of the fleas out there .. Well keep them under control. But if I were you and you did a bombing you should get a prfessional in the house and yard to do that and also take your dog to a groomers and get him free of the fleas. Then make sure you put something on him that will stop the cycle.
