    We had fleas a couple months ago. We have two dogs as well. Here’s what we did…I bought a box of Mule Team Borax (laundry detergent) and a can of cake frosting. I transfered the frosting to another container, washed it out and poked many holes in the lid. Then I filled the can with Borax. Sprinkle it liberally all over your carpet, make sure to get under furniture too. Let it sit for an hour or two, then just vaccum it up. Sounds strange and its super cheap but it seriously works. Also make sure to wash all your bedding and pet bedding, as well as clothes with hot water and high heat dryer. We sprayed our cars with flea killer as well. We have not seen a flea since!

    Vacuum every room. Then you can go online and buy AdVantage for your Pets! Works great..Kills all fleas!! I have 3 cats and no fleas!! The best online price is PetCare Rx.AdVantage for dogs. Put it one them once a month behind their forehead..somewhere where they don’t lick themselves. Go directly into the skin.

    First get Frontline, Advantage, or Revolution from the vet to treat the cats.
    Then, if you need to treat the house, use a product which not only kills adult fleas but also prevents eggs from hatching.
    When we have bad flea years (haven’t had one in along time – knock on wood 🙂 we use Raid products for the house.
    They make a fogger called Raid ® : Flea Killer Plus Foggerhttp://www.killsbugsdead.com/fop_fkpf.as…
    They also make an area spray called Raid ® : Flea Killer Plus Carpet & Room Sprayhttp://www.killsbugsdead.com/fop_fk_pc_r…
    We have had very good results with those products.
    Remember, you want a product that not only kills adult fleas but also prevents eggs from hatching. If you use something that does not prevent the eggs from hatching, when they hatch you are back where you started.
    There is a product, Capstar which is a pill you give the cat. It kills all of the fleas on the cat within about 5 hours.http://www.capstar.novartis.us/
    It does not provide long lasting protection – it merely kills all the fleas on the cat.
    You can use it to kill all the fleas on the cat and then treat the cat with Frontline, Advantage, or Revolution, and then treat the cat.
    Ask your vet about Capstar and using it in combination with other products.
    Capstar is available only by prescription.
    We have used it to kill all the fleas on feral cats who we could not handle to apply something else. We transfer them to another cage or carrier, move them out of the room, fog the room, give them the Capstar in food, and then put them back in the main cage.
    Capstar is like magic – it really will kill all of the fleas on a cat very quickly and it is safe enough that you could use it every day, if need be – though that would be an expensive way to control fleas, day to day.

    SEVIN DUST. A white powder usually used to keep fleas and other bugs of plants. Spray the white powder on the carpets and curtains. Or basically wash everything with HOT water.
