A stray cat used my garage to raise a litter of kittens, how do I get rid of the fleas. The cats left, but the fleas stayed.

    Of course you can use insect bombs…make sure they kill the larvae as well to prevent new hatchlings…salt can also be sprinkled heavily…and left for several days before cleaning up. You can also make a flea trap …place a lamp ( no shade) in the floor and place a plate, pie pan etc. that sort of dish filled with water and a squirt of Palmolive dish soap. The fleas jump toward the light and fall in the water the dishsoap kills them…You can also use pancake syrup instead of the water mixture and they get stuck and die…this doesn’t take care of the unhatched larvae though.

    Well, you removed the food source for your fleas – the cats. You know are the food source. Purchase one of those “flea bombs” to kill the fleas. Try a pet store or your local veterinarian.

    Generously sprinkle pickling salt all over the garage floor. Leave it for three days then sweep away. Fleas should be gone.

    Most over the counter pesticides would work. There are those that utilize natural plant oils.
