I have fleas in my House. Don't know How, or Why. They are in every room. I think it is due to the Hot,warm,wet,and cold weather. They are very agravating. I have sprayed the house. Put the flea stuff on the carpet and then vac'ed. But I don't think that it is helping. I even searched online and done some of the things they have suggested. Does Anyone know how to get rid of these Fleas?

Here are a few tips that you might find useful, I hope they work for you. First add some dawn dish washing liquid when bathing your pet, it is supposed to kill fleas instantly. Second, sprinkle salt over your carpets and leave on overnight, then vacumn up and toss bag, this one works I have tried it myself.

We don't have any inside pet, but with the salt do you use regular table salt? Thanks for this I will definately try it.

If you can't get to a vet, which is the real answer to your problem he'll treat the fleas with frontline plus and he will have to treat the cat for the worms.....he can fix your cat right up , it is worht the money spent to prevent it from happening in the first place, if you can't get to the vet, go to a pet store and ask for frontline plus for cats...ask them to explain to you how to use it... and I really can't tell you how important it is to take the cat to the vet for the worm treatment....

Yeh the salt works cooking salt should do the trick my friend had a similar problem due to his dog and cats i used to hate sitting in his house yoou could honestly go in and sit down for five minuts with a white top on and when you came out you would be able to pick them off and count them in two number figures. He tryed everything but it only killed a few then one day his aunty came to visit out the blue and man i can tell you she was a real clean freak lol she stepped inside his house had a rant about the problem and when my friend had explained he had tryed all the products to get rid of them she went up the shop and bought two big bags of cooking salt and told him to cover everything with the salt. We went out for the day and then when we got back hovered every inch of his house ( i am soooo glad it was a one bedroom bungalow lol) and it worked a treat no more fleas and not only that it lifted some pretty wired stains that were on his carpets also :) Oh yeh if you are annoyed with flea bites you can have a bath in salt water and it will stop the itchyness also ( yep that was her too ) . Hope you get rid of the pesky critters have a nice day

carpets nare a pain..if i were you..putting wooden flooring would be better when you can afford it..somuch stuff in cubates in carpets..itis a pain..try getting some tea tree and putting that with water in one of those garden spray bottless..that works for headlice..it may be strong enough to work on the fleas..good luck..
