    I did it for about 10 years when I had indoor outdoor kitties, now only indoor, so no need any more but it was a life savor!!
    How I got rid of fleas and bugs from my home
    You will need to purchase a simple bug/fly zapper; the type you use on a patio to kill flying insects. You can buy a small one that will cover a large area of your house at most home improvement stores for as little as 20.00-30.00 dollars. For faster results you can use one bug zapper for each room. However the fleas do gravitate to the bug zapper’s light once night sets in and all the lights in your house are out. So one should work for a small home, just make sure to place it in the room where the most fleas are seen or felt. Place the zapper on the floor in a corner behind a piece of furniture so kids and pets won’t play with or bother it. Set it on a plate or pie tin for easy cleaning up of the zapped bugs, you will be killing all bugs in your home as well, and then plug it in. Remember, it is a piece of electrical equipment. You have to use caution in where you put it. At night the fleas automatically want to go to a light, when they hop in to the bug zapper light they get fried! You can actually hear little, zits, zits when the fleas are getting zapped! All GONE! Keep the carpet vacuumed daily until your flea problem is under control, this will help tremendously in getting the fleas eggs out of your home and carpet faster!! I am not responsible for misuse of the above item. Use full caution in placing your bug zapper to the safest place. It will work for months, even years; it will continue to kill bugs in your home as long as the light is on. The bulb can be replaced once it burns out. The light bulb can be purchased at most home improvement stores. http://www.samstores.com/_images/product…

    Talk to your vet, I’m not sure if puppies can have it, but my dogs take this…rather large(smaller for smaller breeds) tablet that makes fleas literally dissapear for a month. Not one body, egg, larva can be found, its amazing, at the end of the month, they all come back though, and they are like $17 each. I think, maybe $12, but see if they have something like that, its like a round, brown circle looking pill.

    adams flea dip is what I use but some times it dosent even work
    my Puppy is 5 months old and she had a really bad infestation when i got her but now i havent seen any on her
    put a flea color on your puppy and bath it once a week
    when you get frontline you cant bath them for a month after
    its 50 dollars for 2 tubes

    Brewers yeast is a natural supplement (found in the pet isle at wal mart for 3 bucks) it is a natural flea repellant. Give the dog a bath with flea shampoo and give the brewers yeast tablets. They eat them like treats, they like the taste.

    Get some Frontline from your vet. It works wonders!
    EDIT~~A 3 month supply of frontline costs around $40. And who ever said you can’t bathe your dog for a month after using frontline……you are so wrong! lol
